Salinas Warnings and Dangers

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Salinas is notorious for car theft and breakins. Do not leave your car on the street!! There are many parking lots around. If you HAVE to leave it on the street, leave nothing in view, and leave your glove box and console empty and open to prove it.

Salinas Off The Beaten Path

    Anconcito is a small fishing village to the southeast of Salinas on the southwest side of the Santa Elena Peninsula. It is approximately 15 minutes from the Paseo Mall and 8 kms from Punta Carnero. Drive to the town around 10:30am - noon and follow the streets down the side of the ocean cliff to the Anconcito wharf to watch the fisherman bring in their boats and their catch. A modern warehouse market next to the wharf allows you to purchase the freshest ocean fish -- corvina, snapper, tuna. If you are simply inspired by the sight for a marvelous lunch I reccomend driving back up the hill to the entrance of town and look for the CEBICHERIA sign on the north side of the road pointing to a dirt road into a neighborhood area of bamboo and cinderblock huts, turn right and on the hill going back into town you will find FRUKO's place. Very friendly and very Ecuadorian. On a recent Saturday afternoon my companion and I sat cheering on the Ecuador Futbol team with the locals while eating a wonderful Cebiche Mixto and a rice dish with 8 varieties of fish including clams, mussels, shrimp, langostino, tuna, and fried corvina. I recommend the local brew Pilsener (a pale flavorful lager) which we of course downed with our new soccer friends. Cost of the meal for 2 main courses, salad, rice, potatoes and drinks: $13
