Salinas is a coastal, resort city in Ecuador, with wide beaches and attractively priced hotels. This World Cup’s bike course is mainly flat and fast with a couple of short inclines. The bike and run course use the boulevard along the beach, called Malecon from where you will get scenic views of this quiet Pacific Ocean bay, and where beach goers gather along the course to sheer on the athletes.
Ecuador’s currency is the US Dollar. This is a very convenient feature of this gem of a city in South America. While there, take time to visit the Western-most tip of the South American Continent called “La Chocolatera.”

2018 Salinas World Cup Women's Highlights
The third edition of the Salinas ITU Triathlon World Cup was the most dramatic and exciting to date after Yuliya Yelistratova (UKR) and David Castro Fajardo (ESP) both won their way to the top of the podium in down-to-the-wire sprint finishes on the blue carpet. With an emotional grab of the victory tape, both Yelistratova and Castro returned to the winner’s circle after years of not making it onto a World Cup podium, with Yelistratova seizing gold for the first time since 2015 and Castro not winning a World Cup race since winning in the debut Salinas event back in 2016.
