Bahía Solano

Bahía Solano is poised to take advantage of its location to become the Pacific Coast’s major tourist destination. The town, protected by a vast bay, is descended upon by hundreds of tourists during the whale-watching and sport-fishing seasons. Beyond these times, however, you can have the city to yourself.

The town itself is similar to others along the Pacific Coast, as the tourist aspect is kept separate from the daily life of the locals. All hotels in Bahía Solano are located in the southern end of the town. Use the massive Hotel Balboa Plaza as a reference point and it is highly unlikely that you’ll get lost. There are just a few restaurants and places to stay, so a great deal of vacationers head to the next beach along the coast, Huina.

The polite and captivating people of Bahía Solano dedicate themselves to various industries: fishing, cattle, agriculture, tourism and the more sinister industry of cocaine. The DAS office and military have a significant presence here. Do not, under any circumstances, attempt to photograph military installations or involve yourself in any way in the drug trade.

(Altitude: 5 meters, Population: 10,000, City Code: 4)
