The following is a list of Ambassadors of the United States, or other chiefs of mission, to Ecuador. The title given by the United States State Department to this position is currently Ambassador Extraordinary and Minister Plenipotentiary.

Ambassador Heather M. Hodges was declared persona non grata by the government of Ecuador and expelled from Ecuador on April 5, 2011. The expulsion was a result of the government’s displeasure over disclosures in WikiLeaks that the ambassador had criticized police corruption in Ecuador.[1][2] (see United States diplomatic cables leak.)
