What do I need to know before retiring in Salinas?

Answer this Question

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Salinas, they said...

"Expat retirees should be aware that healthcare in Salinas can be limited and may not meet the standards of many Western countries. It may be useful to secure private health insurance. The local currency is the U.S. Dollar so exchanging foreign currency may not be necessary. Salinas is fairly remote, so public transportation is limited and having a car is highly recommended. As with most places in Ecuador, the climate is very warm and the sun is strong. Expats should be sure to use plenty of sunscreen and drink plenty of water to avoid heat-related illnesses," remarked another expat in Salinas, Ecuador, Ecuador.

"I'd say if you are retired and wanting a nice beach area where the views are exceptional. Yes this maybe the place for you. But there are many cities along the coast that you may like better. One plus for us is we live very close to the main mall here, walking distance and we really like that as in the past it would take us all day of shopping when we lived in Montanita. P.S. Just lessons learned would only bring down only what you absolutely need. Shipping items to here is very expensive and a real pain in the butt. Would not recommend that unless you absolutely need to," said a member in Salinas, Ecuador.
