US dollar acceptance?

Hello GringoPost,

Do US bills need to be in perfect condition in order to be accepted in Ecuador? I traveled in SE Asia and found that US money would not be accepted unless it was in new condition. The Google machine didn’t yield any results, with some information saying that US bills need to be in nice/almost perfect condition in order to be accepted in South America. Since Ecuador is on the dollar, I am hoping they will be more lenient.

Thank you,

Jefferson Johnson
