Description of the area
Located on the peninsula of Santa Elena, Playa Salinas is surrounded by a large number of salt water lagoons that are ideal for many water sports such as sport fishing, sailing, surfing or diving.
Ecuador has a wide variety of culinary specialties. In the coastal areas the most famous dishes include pescado en cocada (fish cooked in coconut), bilche and rice with menestra (stewed beans or lentils). On the other side of the country, in the Ecuadorian mountain regions, roast pork with 'llapingachos' (fried potato pancakes) or cooked 'mote' (hominy or dried maize kernels) are the favorites.
Ecuador is also known for its large number of international restaurants specializing in Japanese, French, Italian or Spanish cuisine.
