The Ecuador Open Quito was a men's tennis event on the ATP Tour held in the Ecuadorean capital of Quito. Begun in 2015, it was part of the ATP 250 Series. The tournament was played on outdoor clay courts. The event replaced the VTR Open held in Chile.
Quito is located at 2800 metres above sea level, more than twice higher than the Alps tournaments. Players must adapt to thinner air, which causes breathing difficulties and makes the ball fly faster.
Victor Estrella Burgos won the title in 2015, successfully defended it in 2016 and did so again in 2017 to maintain his 100% record at the tournament. However, he lost in the second round of the 2018 edition to Gerald Melzer.
On 24 August 2018, tournament organisers announced that the tournament is officially folded due to lack of financial support.
