The city has a fairly constant cool climate due to its elevation and proximity to the equator. The average temperature during the day is 66°F (19°C), which generally falls to an average of slightly below 50°F (10°C) at night. The average temperature annually is 64°F (18°C). There are only really two obvious seasons in the city: dry and wet. The dry season (summer) runs from June to September and the wet season from October to May. The wet season in Quito only means it can rain once in a while it doesn’t rain all the time what resulting in that you can visit Quito year-round.</p><p>Meanwhile, stay in a luxury hotel in Old Town Quito, Old Town Quito Suites is one of the 10 best Boutique Hotels in Quito and let you pamper by us.</p> </div> </div> </div> </div> </div> </section> </div> </div>
