Drive in Ecuador on a US license?

Can I drive in Ecuador with my US license? And if so, for how long am I allowed to drive in EC without procuring an Ecuadorian license?

Thanks,
CJ

Based on my research on the Web, 60 or 90 days.

The limit has apparently changed more than once in recent years .. and I doubt most cops know the terms of the exact law that is supposedly now in effect.

If anyone tells you a different number of days, take it with a grain of salt unless they can back it up with a reliably current citation of the law.

Now that the new immigration law is taking effect, it's possible 180 days will be allowable for those with a tourist permit of that length.
