Great question. In Ecuador, tips aren´t really expected nor often given by the locals. In really high-class places that often serve foreigners tips may be requested. Often though, in the high-class places tips are already included in the bill.
So the short answer is “no”, you don´t have to tip in Ecuador (but it´s always appreciated!).
