I love vacationing in Salinas, Ecuador where I can go to this gorgeous beach town and enjoy the awesome views, aquatic activities and travel this small but diverse beautiful country. Galapagos is a hop away. Tourists that visit Galapagos and the Andes usually stop here to relax and enjoy the gorgeous climate and beaches. I live in the Hollywood Hills, California next to the Hollywood Sign which also has fantastic city views.
You can see forever from the condo. It is totally relaxing and I can step out of the condo right to the ocean, restaurants, markets, transportation, etc. It is one of the most beautiful beaches in South America. The climate is perfect... right in the Equator. There are so many things to do in Salinas and in the whole country. If you do not know Spanish...there are plenty of Salinas residents that speak English and are very friendly and welcoming.
