Are There Tourist Taxes in Ecuador?

There is a departure tax on flights leaving Ecuador. The amount depends on if you leave from Quito or Guayaquil, but typically ranges from $25–$40. This tax, however, is usually included in the cost of your flight. Additionally, restaurants, shops, and hotels add a 12 percent IVA (value-added tax) to your bill. The tax should be noted separately on the bill.
