  • It has a spectacular view, combining nature and modernity with huge surrounding buildings. Point against the amount of sellers, but is resolved to going to the beach Chichipe minutes. PD salinas has a nice Boardwalk, and the sunset is spectacular.

  • Street vendors a little heavy the first day, then when you already know to relax a little, the exquisite food I recommend a sailor rice.

  • We went during the cold, the sea is calm but the beaches are beautiful and your hotel zone is quite wide, for all budgets

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.
