Ecuador is great for hitchhiking, just be careful in some places. Many pick-up trucks are there. Drivers might ask for money, but if you are a Westerner you might get away with that. Many Ecuadorians are happy to pick up a foreigner. It's not the safest country to hitchhike though.

Buses in Ecuador are quite cheap, and will usually stop anywhere. On some roads, though, there are no buses at all, in which case hitchhiking can be a good alternative, and you will be most likely picked up quickly as well. Very often the very first car that passes will pick you up.
