We are located in Salinas proper. Not La Libertad. Not Ballenita and not way up the coast near Punta Blanca. Not Cintenella. We are 2 blocks from Hotel Barcelo-Miramar where they charge $300 per night. Overlooking the tranquil bay of Salinas on the MALECON (Boardwalk) and the Pacific Ocean. During the season, you can catch a glimpse of whales and do a bit of whale watching from the balcony during season. See some blue footed boobies like in the Galápagos Islands in nearby Ancon. Wireless Internet in La Siesta.
3 bedrooms with 2013 newly installed AC and 3 baths. One bath in the Master and the other two are located in the hallway. One at the end of the hallway and one adjacent to the kitchen. Washer and a gas dryer in kitchen area. 1350 square feet. + open air garage behind gates. The kitchen/dining/bar and great room are all connected so that all activities in this area has an ocean front view.
Activities include watercraft rental, fishing tours at 'Pesca Tours' (we can help arrange this for you if you speak no Spanish), whale watching, or just enjoy the beach, we have it all. We are situated on a large shallow bay, but twelve miles from shore the water is 19,877 feet deep. See this Wiki quote, 'Salinas is the most well known bill fishing location and seasonally offers good fishing for large striped marlin as well as blue marlin and other gamefish such as big eye tuna. The other popular Blue Marlin destination in the country is Manta which is usually in season when Salinas is not. A large fleet of sport fishing vessels operates out of both towns. Blues in this area are known to reach large sizes, with the most notable capture being a 1,014 lb fish boated by local angler Jorge Jurado which formerly held the IGFA 80 lb class record. '
A few minutes walk on the Malecon and several others on street in the back. One of our favorite restaurants is the Mar Azul which is on the same street as the back of the Hotel Barcelo Miramar, a couple of blocks down toward the ice cream shop known as 'Pingueno.'
Across the road the water is warm and the waves are gentle, so your children can play in the water while you watch from your rented beach chair and umbrella. You can purchase ice cream, sandwiches, coconuts, or a bottle of beer from beach vendors that cater to your every need. I love this place!
The Salinas Market is a few blocks away and restaurants, and shops are up and down the Malecon where we are located. Soups here are $1 and talk about fresh fried fish! The word for market in Spanish is 'Mercado,' Just ask anyone where it is located. 'Donde esta el Mercado por favor?' Where is the market please?TripAdvisor property ID 3120423...Read more
