Nearly 1,000 kilometers off the coast lies the unique volcanic archipelago of the Galápagos. Nowhere else on Earth has such a concentration of unique species, including the iconic giant tortoises, marine iguanas, and Darwin’s Finches—the birds that helped the famous naturalist develop his theory of the origin of species.
The wet and dry seasons determine the weather in Ecuador, depending on the geographic region. Since Ecuador is on the equator, the temperature fluctuations over the year are relatively small, but significant between day and night. Depending on the altitude, the temperature is determined. Temperatures on the coast are pleasant between 24-28 °C. In the highlands, it is getting colder and wetter. And snow can be discovered at around 4,500 m. The Amazon region generally has a hot and humid climate and has the most rainy days, which usually take the form of short, heavy rain showers.
