When the sun is out, the light in Cuenca is extraordinarily bright and beautiful with deep blue skies.

On a typical day for the climate of Cuenca, clouds are moving in, but they don't necessarily bring rain, and when they do, rains often last a brief moment. Most people walk in shirts or light sweaters.

 

For detailed information on climate and weather conditions read:

As the weather and climate in Ecuador vary greatly with elevation and region, you need different clothing for different regions. Depending on where you travel, you have to be prepared for hot weather in the western lowlands and Galapagos National Park, with thin shirts, shorts and light trousers. For the central Andes valley, the Andes flanks and Cuyabeno, be sure to take a light sweater or buy one locally, because the evenings may turn chilly. If you plan to go up in the highlands above 3500 m, be sure you bring adequately warm clothing, because - depending on elevation - temperatures may turn wintery cold. Be prepared for rainfall everywhere, so bring a nylon poncho and/or water-coated light rain jacket.

 

WARNING: You will be on the Equator. UV radiation is extremely high everywhere you go and you need to protect you adequately, even if you are dark-skinned. Always where a hat, not just a baseball cap, and please, don't wear sandals or bear feet when you come from abroad. I have seen such horribly painful feet on people who covered everything but their feet. Your feet get the most direct sunlight as they are exposed horizontally to the sun!

 

Always put on high grade sun block (don't forget the edges of your ears).  Accustom your skin to the sunlight by exposing it for no more than an hour the first day and add an hour everyday afterwards. Don't be fooled by an overcast sky, you can still get sun burn. Be particularly aware in the highlands, where the UV is even higher!; and on the water (Cuyabeno, Galapagos), because on the water, the UV effect is greater. Also beware of wind, as it also tends to increase the sun burning of your skin. So the best time to visit Cuenca according to the climate data? Anytime!
