Salinas Services

Most of the services in Salinas are concentrated on the Malec贸n and the three streets behind it, especially Avenida Gral. Ernesto Gallo (Av. 1).

Salinas' iTur office is only open during high season, which runs December to April. The one in nearby La Libertad is open year-round. The city's police office is on Avenida Espinoza Larrea, in Barrio San Lorenzo (Tel: 04-277-5813).

Several banks have branches on the Malec贸n. Banco de Pichincha is between streets 29 and 30, half a block from the Capitan铆a de Puerto (Monday-Friday 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m., Saturday 9 a.m.-1 p.m.). A Banco de Austro ATM can be found next to Yogurt Persa. A block away is Banco de Guayaquil, just past Calle 23 (Monday-Friday 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m., Saturday 9 a.m.-1 pm.).

"Claro Cabinas,"on the Malec贸n next to Oh Mar and in front of the area where the boats are docked, has seven computers for Internet use. Internet costs $1 per hour (daily 8 a.m.-10 p.m.). It also has seven calling booths, from where you can make national or international calls. You can also download and print photos from your digital camera here.

If there is a medical emergency, call 911, or 112 for an ambulance. The city's public hospital is located in Ciudadel Frank Vargas Pazos, next to the Salinas Country Club. It is open 24 hours and has free consultations; it is only OK for general consultations for those who speak Spanish, as it does not have a lot of specialists and the doctors there do not speak English. A much better option is Cl铆nica Fae, the military hospital, located in the Chipipe neighborhood (Av. S茅ptima s/n and Ca. Atahualpa. Tel: 04-277-3764). There is a pharmacy on the Malec贸n, near the corner with Calle 22 (daily 9 a.m.-10:30 p.m.). Another pharmacy, Farmac铆a Sabano, is located just one block from the bus station, at Avenida 18 s/n and Avenida Gral. Enrique Gallo (Monday-Thursday and Sunday 9 a.m.-10:30 p.m., Friday and Saturday 9 a.m.-midnight; longer hours during high season. Tel: 04-277-3602).

You can bring your dirty laundry to Lavandaria "Piky," on Avenida Gral. Enrique Gallo and Calle 24 (daily 9 a.m.-5:30 p.m. Cel: 09-9918-4582), which charges $0.40 per kilogram.
