What’s the weather like in Quito?
Quito’s position near the equator means it has a fairly consistent climate all year round. Variations in temperature are slight; February hovers at an average of 13°C (55°F) and the ‘hottest’ month, August, has an average temperature of 14°C (56°F). Paradoxically, visiting in the rainy season means you are more likely to avoid the muggy, overcast days of the dry season.
