The Pros and Cons of living in Ecuador. The Weather. April 2015.

Weather in Ecuador (pros):
I only can talk about Quito's weather. It is perfect, for me anyway. There are no bugs or flies, the sun shines almost every morning and the temps are not freezing cold, not blazing hot.
Buildings in Quito: offices, houses, apartments buildings, are built using concrete and they don't have neither air-conditioning, nor heating, the flooring is mostly either laminated, hardwood or tiled. Oftentimes its colder inside than outside.

When you coming to Quito for extended period of time, to wonder around, to work, to study, whatever - make sure you pack warm lounging clothing, sweatpants, sweatshirts,  flannel pajamas and warm slippers - think about what you can sleep in rather than looking stylish.If you like to sleep with minimal clothing - pack electrical throw or blanket.

Here are my posts about weather in Quito.




Weather in Ecuador (cons):
You may discover that moving to altitude effects your health and not in a positive way: headaches, dizziness, insomnia, muscle twitching, edema, fatigue, and/or disorientation.
Live on the coast and the bugs, flies, fleas, and mosquitoes can be a challenge.
