Quito Weather

What is the weather like in Quito Ecuador?

There is a saying ‘If you don’t like the weather, wait an hour’, that is the case here. In Quito you can experience four seasons in one day and the weather is mostly fresh and spring-like throughout the year being perfect for calm exploring.

You might be surprised to know that Quito doesn’t experience the 4 seasons that travelers might be used to elsewhere in the world. Due to our location right on the Equator it gives Quito the advantage which means no summer or winter, and the sun rises and sets at the same time right through the year.

Quito has a wet and a dry season. Approximately speaking the dry season runs from June and September, with dry skies and strong winds. Quito’s wet season lasts from October through to May, with a higher chance of showers, although not necessarily as a daily occurrence. In truth these two seasons often overlap, and the distinction in weather conditions is not as strictly defined as the season names suggest.

The streets of Quito are illuminated and the historic center is full of decorated trees and garlands. The beautiful historic houses, museums and churches will attract your attention. Stroll through the cobbled streets, and many parks, listen to the music and enjoy the vivid Ecuadorian way to celebrate Christmas in Quito.

Many churches have a musical program, often with free entrance.

Lots of restaurants offer a special menu and Old Town Quito Suites can recommend you the best restaurants to enjoy Christmas food.

CHRISTMAS IN QUITO

Picture of Historic Center of Quito in Christmas

All this is due to the arrival of Catholicism by the Spanish colonies. The oldest reference of catholic celebrations related to Christmas is from 1960 where indigenous people and caciques were baptized on Christmas dates. 

Catholicism promoted new festivities that over time generated feelings of belonging and identification with Quito that together with Christmas have created new ideas and experiences manifested in their surroundings.

The streets of Quito are illuminated and the historic center is no exception, the decorations of trees, restaurants, houses and museums (in the historic center) are what attract the most attention.
