Along these southern coastal beaches the best weather is from mid-December through May here. This time of the year is also local’s high beach season, since you get must sunny days and temps between 75 and 85.
Water temperature is also great, you could spend over 4 hour in the water with no wet suit.
For the rest of the year from the end of May till November you have more overcast days, my personal experience is that you hardly see the sun, there is no rain, just cloudy, damp and windy and lower temperatures.
After living in Canada, I could not complain of overcast weather, my best option at that time of the year, it is to go to Playas de Villamil that is an hour drive from Guayaquil, and I get sunshine all year round whit one of the best climates in the planet.
Which it is great about Ecuador is the option to travel from the city to the beach and back to the highland in a couple of hour driving time…. Remember there are no severe weather patterns for the coast of Ecuador!
