Working in Ecuador
In Ecuador, an hourly wage is very uncommon, but usually bimonthly or monthly. A job that pays $350 and up a month for an 8 hour work day, is sufficient to cover your basic costs in Ecuador.


Work for Tourists
A person that comes to Ecuador and fulfils the legal requisites can work in whatever they wish, always and if their ability to communicate allows them to relate to the future client. However, we recommend some of the more common jobs for foreigners in the country and their average salaries:

  1. Language teacher (English, German, etc) - we recommend that you have special certifications available in the different languages or previous experience as a teacher, this will increase your salary. Approximate salary: $300 - $500. / Hourly: $8.00-$10.00

  3. Sports teacher - if you also have some form of international certification from some course or diploma as an aerobics instructor, weights or extreme sports, you will be an ideal candidate for working in high class gyms in the city or for a tour operator that wishes to provide this service. Approximate salary: $200 - $750.
