At Salinas there are thousands of salt pans currently being used to extract salt in this area and this has been done here since Inca days. Hot salt-laden spring water is discharged, diverted and channelled into separate pans, evaporated, collected and sold.



Getting Around

By Foot

There's a spectacular trail from the Salinas salt pans down the valley to Urubamba crossing the Rio Urubamba.

    We spend a month in La Libertad/Salinas on the coast of Ecuador, an hour from Guayaquil. We purchased a 2 bedroom condo in Puerto Lucia Yacht Club complex and hope to travel to our new home 3 months annually.
