What is the weather like in the area?
Answer: This area of Ecuador has 2 main seasons; the wet season and the dry season. From December to June is the wet season and when most of our rainfall occurs. But surprisingly it is also the sunniest time as well with most of the rainfall being over night. The trees and foliage all become bright and the days are beautiful with barely a cloud in the sky.
