Best Time to Fly to Guayaquil

This region has a dry and hot, tropical climate, and two defined seasons. The dry season in the region runs from May to December, and this is also the foggy time of the year, so not the best for water activities and views. The wet season runs from January to April and this is also the sunny season. The rain in the area can occasionally be very heavy. July to January is the most temperate months in the city.

Since the dry season can also be very foggy, this is sometimes a quieter time in the city. Late spring, summer and early fall are often very busy times to visit Guayaquil. Once the rainy season begins, tourism quiets down and this is when cheaper rates on hotels and airfares can be found. The Christmas season is a busy time in the region so if you don’t enjoy crowds, it is best to avoid it during the festive holiday. Prices are likely to be much higher during this time.
