What do people like (and dislike) about Salinas?

Answer this Question

When we asked expats and global nomads what they like and dislike about living in Salinas, they replied...

"If you like the climate of Salinas BUT not the congestion and noise on weekends and holidays, we have a well kept secret called Puerto Lucia. It's a lot like ocean front part of Salinas without the commercial area of Salinas malecon. It's only 10 min by taxi from the malecon of central Salinas, yet walking distance from the shopping mall. Check it out on Google maps," remarked another expat who made the move to Salinas, Ecuador.

"Expatriates and digital nomads living in Salinas appreciate the city's laid-back atmosphere and its proximity to the beach. They also enjoy the low cost of living, which allows them to stretch their budget further. Additionally, the city's warm climate and friendly locals make it a great place to live. On the other hand, some expats and digital nomads may find the lack of infrastructure and public transportation options to be a challenge. Additionally, the language barrier can be a challenge for those who don't speak Spanish," explained one expat living in Salinas, Ecuador.
