Salinas Ecuador travel itinerary. From Cuenca we take a bus going to Guayaquil. Then from Guayaquil we transfer onto a coastal tour bus that take us to Salinas. It takes a little over 3-1/2 -hours to get to Guayaquil and another two hours to get to Salinas. We're happy to be off the bus by the time we get into Salinas. Our travels take us further north up the coastline to more beach towns...stay tuned for more videos of Ecuador beaches and towns!
