Ecuador is one of the world’s biodiversity ‘hot spots’ with over 20 000 plant species, 1500 bird species and 300 species of mammals. The vastly different climatic zones and regions support different species with the tropical forests in the east containing the most diversity. As a comparison, Ecuador has twice as many recorded bird species than the whole of North America or Europe. Nature lovers flock to Ecuador to enjoy the variety and spectacle that such a diverse and large number of species offer.

Ecuador can be divided into 4 geographical regions, the Coast, the Andes, the Amazon, and the Galapagos Islands. The Pacific coast has an average temperature of 25 degrees C (75 F) and is generally hot and humid (the wet season) from December to May, and dry and warm from May to October. The temperature in the Andes region (The Highlands) varies depending on altitude. It is generally cold and wet from November to April, and dry between May and October. The temperature ranges from 0 to 20 degrees C (32-68 F) depending on altitude. A general rule is that the higher the altitude the colder it gets. The Amazon Basin is humid and rains frequently between January and September, with temperatures reaching 36 degrees C (97 F) quite regularly. Between October and December it is generally dry and more pleasant due to the reduced humidity. The Galapagos Islands have warm and pleasant subtropical conditions all year round with an average temperature of 28 degrees C (82 F).
