260K Penthouse Suite in Salinas: Would You Buy This Apartment?

Salinas, at least on the beach is VERY touristy. Prices have skyrocketed in the last two years. Restaurants along the Malecon are expensive! Condos are expensive! We'll be talking more about Salinas rentals and what you get for the money in an upcoming post and video. The problem we see with Salinas is once you walk one or two streets back from the Malecon it is quite shabby looking and lots of garbage and there's nothing there. However, in La Libertad there is a shopping mall.  
This video is of a 260K penthouse suite that we checked out for the fun of it, which Frank and I both thought was nothing special when considering the price tag. According to our rule of 3 and 4 this condo is waaaaay overpriced for Ecuador!



  1. Do you have any pictures of the kitchen? That's always the deciding factor for me.

  2. I am coming to your site almost as often as to Facebook. What can I say? I love it. Thanks.

  3. I am thrilled by the Rule of 3 and 4. Makes so much sense! That condo is way overvalued. Yikes. Thanks, Tamara

  4. Hi Dena Jo,

    I wish I had them still. I accidentally deleted some of the pics on my SD card when I was transferring them onto my computer. The kitchen/living area was some of the deleted pictures. The view was nice from the kitchen and living room with huge windows, but the kitchen was small and neither room was that great when you attach the price to it...

  5. @Tamara:

    We figure if we're getting a benefit from something, others probably will too.
    Thanks for commenting...
