FAQ #53 – What About BUSKING In Ecuador?

Busking in Ecuador is very common. You’ll often see people playing guitar, drums, flutes, pan flutes, accordions and other instruments, as well as singing, juggling, doing soccer tricks, fire breathing and also sorts of other entertaining activities.

In the small beach towns like Olón and Montañita, buskers walk or ride their bikes from restaurant to restaurant where they play a few songs for the patrons before collecting tips and moving on.

Others stand in one spot on a busy street corner or in a busy park and entertain bystanders and passersby.

We have not heard anything about licensing fees and requirements for busking in Ecuador, as many places around the world have, but we recommend speaking with a qualified legal or tax representative if you’re concerned about that.
