His nickname is El Mago, meaning wizard or magician.
Salas began his career in the youth ranks of LDU Quito, and in 2000 made his debut with the senior side. Noted for his skillful dribbling skills and his pace, his hard shot from 25 yards won the award for the goal of the tournament in the 2005 Copa Sudamericana. In late 2006, Salas had a trial with PSV Eindhoven, but Ronald Koeman did not offer him a contract.
On 16 July 2007, Salas was presented along with Argentine Hernán Barcos and Colombian Mauricio Molina, as the three new South American players for Red Star Belgrade, former European Cup champions. In 2008, Salas made a return to LDU Quito after a bad run with the Serbian club.
Subsequently, he was a regular member of the Ecuador national football team during the 2006 FIFA World Cup qualification phase, but was not called up to the World Cup squad due to a serious knee injury which required surgery. He scored the winning goal against Colombia in World Cup qualification on 2 June 2004.
