Salinas history

Salinas, Santa Elena, Ecuador

The road to Salinas Ecuador is lined by the tropical dry forest. First stop is at a small on-site museum of "The Lovers of Sumpa", two embracing skeletons of a man and woman dating back to 7000 years ago.

 This site of Las Vegas culture is the oldest well-documented pre-ceramic camp in Ecuador. Salinas is surrounded by seemingly barren flatlands, with pools where sea water evaporates leaving tons of salt behind. These man-made lagoons are visited by many kinds of shorebirds. Salinas Ecuador hosts world deep sea sport-fishing competitions, mainly for Tuna, Blue Martin and Black Marlin, but sailfish is also popular. Some world records have been obtained here.

There is a vast diversity of restaurants and cafeterias. On the Malecon, just two blocks away from the Barcelo Colon Miramar, you can visit the Naval Archeological Museum. This small museum displays the vast archeological richness of the region with samples of the Ecuadorian pre-Hispanic history.
