Be ready for early morning pickup at your hotel in Guayaquil around 7 a.m., bring everything you'll need for a day at the beach. In a comfortable vehicle, sit back and relax for the 2-hour drive to Salinas, where Barceló Colón Miramar is located.
Once you arrive, enjoy an included breakfast at 9:40 a.m., then depart for a tour of the 'Lobería,' 'Chocolatera,' and the Salt Pool of the Ecuasal factory. See where the two marine currents converge to produce waves crashing against the rocks and creation of continual rainbows. Move on to the Ecuasal Pools, originally part of the salt trade, now home to thousands of shorebirds.
Return to the resort for a lunch buffet, then use the resort facilities in the afternoon, followed up by a buffet dinner and return to Guayaquil around 7 p.m.
