What to pack for trip to Ecuador in August??

Good Morning

Just wondering what I should pack to go to Ecuador in August. We will be spending our trip in Quito and in Otavalo (also one day trip to Cotopaxi). Just wondering if I should pack shorts or pants, also if I should pack more T-shirts or sweaters?

The weather at that time can change every hour, with light rain showers alternating with sun. Because youre at higher altitudes, it's likely to be on the cool side. Layers are the way to go. If you have to choose, light pants will be more useful than shorts (a pair of convertible pants is handy), and you will often need more than a t-shirt. Fleece vest and jacket are good. If you plan many outdoor activities, raingear could also be useful. For hiking or volcanoes, a warm cap, gloves and neck gaiter or scarf will help.
