The weather on the coast of Ecuador is sunny, with bluebird days almost every day from the end of December until the beginning of April. From mid April to mid December, the skies are overcast most days. The temperature doesn’t really change year-round, staying around a mild yet warm 72-82 F.
The humidity is low, due to the comfortable breeze blowing constantly off the ocean.
The Pacific Ocean is similar to the Pacific coast in Mexico or California. The water is a little darker than it is in the Caribbean. The water temperature is OK to swim without a wetsuit, but for long periods in the water, some surfers use a half wetsuit.
Rain on the coast is a rare commodity, but some areas get much more rain than others. For example, the Manta area is rather dry, but from Puerto Lopez to Montanita it can get rather wet in the cloudy season.
