Where can I find the most sun in Ecuador?
My answer. The Dominican Republic. No…well, Ecuador has sun, just not as much as it’s Caribbean neighbors. And life in Ecuador has it’s definite advantages over the Caribbean, like costs, mild weather, amazing food, nice people, good business opportunity and more.
In fact, Ecuador has many micro-climates, all with their own distinct weather patterns. Some with sun, and some without.
Much of the coast has crystal-clear blue-bird days from late December to early April. From there, the rest of the year most days are often overcast.
In the Andes, just about every day has an interesting mix of blue skies, sun, rain, clouds, and the occasional hail. Many locals in the Highlands mention how all 4 seasons can often be seen in the same day.
In the Amazon, the climate reminds me of when I lived in Hawaii, where on any given day you will probably see some sun, and a few moments of torrential down-pore.
Below is a Town by Town comparison of the sun in Ecuador based on my personal experience:
1-10, 1 is NO SUN, 10 is All day , almost everyday, pack the SPF 100
Bahia de Caraquez 4
Puerto Lopez 4
San Clemente 8
