Ecuador sits right on the equator, so it’s in both the Northern and Southern Hemispheres. Because it sits on the equator, the temperatures in Ecuador stay constant throughout the year, however due to the huge differences in terrain across the country, it’s much cooler in the highlands year-round in places like Quito than it is in Guayaquil which is on the coast. There are two seasons in Ecuador: wet and dry. Ecuador’s dry season (winter) runs from June to September, but the rest of the year (October to May) is considered the wet season as it rains a lot and the weather is very unpredictable.
