#1 of 11 in Things to do in Salinas
Enjoy a pristine beach with gently sloping white sand and crystal blue water at Playa de Chipipe, truly encapsulating the feeling of a paradise beach. The sand stretches out wide giving you enough room to feel comfortable even in peak season. The tranquil flat water makes the beach ideal for water sports like sailing, jet skiing, parasailing, and tube rides. Pick up some chifle, a fried plantain snack, from one of the food vendors and stroll among the palm trees and luxury apartment buildings that overlook the water. Watch out for pelicans ducking under the water hoping to catch some fish. Put Playa de Chipipe on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Salinas route app .

  • Beautiful beach with no trade, the salinas and san lorenzo, presents the same conditions of temperature but slightly more waves to be on the other side of the pier. It is worth visiting it.

Where to stay in Salinas

Most of the established, exclusive resorts, yacht clubs, and beachfront hotels can be found at the eastern end of the developed coastline. Mid-range hotels occupy the western section, tussling for space on the waterfront. In between the two, you'll find the more budget-friendly accommodations, with comfortable hotels and guesthouses on the side streets of a mainly residential neighborhood.
