Puerto Lopez sunrise rainbows are most common during the coastal Ecuador rainy season.
The same is true for Puerto Lopez sunset rainbows.
The rainy season, December through May, is also the time for cerulean blue skies. This causes confusion when people are planning their visit. They see blue skies on social media photos yet all of the guide books say it is the rainy season.
When does it rain during the rainy season?
Rain usually falls at night though certainly not every night. The above photo was taken at the Victor Hugo Hotel in February at 10:00 pm. Hours earlier, I walked there in the sunshine. I was drenched when I reached home because I rarely have an umbrella. I am usually home before the rains begin, getting ready to watch for a sunrise rainbow the next day.
A look back
Last year, I wrote Reinventing a 2.4 km beach front boardwalk.
