WHAT TO DO

Versatile, Salvador is a very nice city, either during the day or at night. Tourism is one of the city’s strong infrastructure.

So much for those who enjoy history and for those who prefer to spend the day on the seafront, abound scripts. If you want beaches with more people, stand the urban part of town; but if you prefer more secluded beaches, experiment beaches around places know as Stella Maris and Flamengo.

The best alternative is the night walk around Rio vermelho, the bohemian neighborhood of the city, and see firsthand all it offers – concert halls, bars, restaurants and points of most famous acarajé in Brazil.
