Salinas is the largest coastal resort and is located in the
westernmost point of Ecuador. From December to April,
Salinas’ relaxed beach lifestyle is replaced by a vibrant
touristic center with a seasonal offering of restaurants,
clubs and events.
La Chocolatera is a natural breakwater where the ocean
displays its strength while mercilessly hitting its rocks. It is a
beautiful location that amazes as well as inspires awe from
Five minutes away from Salinas is La Lobería, a natural
reserve where turquoise water and white sand house a small
community of sea lions. You can discover this reserve with a
hike along its trails, snorkeling, or kayaking above sea level.
This is also a hot spot for surfing along the sea lions.
Salinas del Siglo XXI is an interesting museum with
archeological pieces, small replicas of antique rafts used by
the Manteño – Huancavilca culture, and important pieces
made out of spondylus, which was the currency, used in the
past for commerce and the precious shell that our expedition
takes its name after.
