The rural parish of Salinas (5,821 inhabitants, 44,510 ha) is located in the center of Guaranda Canton (Bolívar Province), 30 km north of the town of Guaranda. The parish is made of 31 communities, but most of its inhabitants of the parish live in the capital
Salinas was established as a civil parish in 1884. The parish was named for salterns ('salinas') once exploited by the Tombelas Indians, who appear to have lived in natural caves of the cliffs lining river Tiagua. The salterns, the caves and the preserved natural environment have made of Salinas a noted tourist's spot, welcoming every year some 10,000 visitors.
