Where to go when - our guide to Guayaquil

Guayaquil

The weather in Guayaquil is wide and varied

Located on the banks of the river Guayas, which flows into the Pacific, Ecuador’s largest city and principal port of Guayaquil is a hot and humid place where the temperature seldom dips below 28°C all year round. As is characteristic of the southern Pacific strip in Ecuador, sunny days with heavy afternoon rains can be expected from January-April, when humidity levels are also extremely high. Outside of these months there is very little rainfall, although high humidity levels remain (70% and over) due to the city’s location on the river and the almost permanent dry season cloud cover. A modern and heavily populated city, most visitors just pass through for a night on the way to, or back from the Galapagos Islands so the weather here is of little consequence. However, good quality hotels, a pleasant and breezy malecon (riverside promenade) with its nearby arty hillside district of Las Penas offer enough of interest for a short visit whatever the time of the year.
