Ecuador’s climate changes with the altitude of the location. The valleys have a moderate climate all throughout the year while the lowlands witness heavy rainfall and support dense rainforests. The coastal areas get heavy downpours.

The geography of Ecuador is divided into La Costa (coast), La Amazonia (Amazon Rainforests), and the Region Insular (Galapagos Islands). The topmost point of Mount Chimborazo is considered to be the point which is at the highest distance from the center of the earth.
