Everyone in Ecuador knows and goes to Salinas. It is lined with cool restaurants and condos. I last visited over new years and had an experience like I have never had. They build fires on the beach and shoot fireworks from multiple locations. This was the best new years ever and I cannot wait to go back. Great food, nice... More
