The colourful streets of Salvador are the best place to experience Afro-Portuguese culture in Brazil.
At once laid-back and energetic, the colourful heart of Salvador da Bahia is a treat for the senses; the sound of rhythmic music, the sight of acrobatic capoeira dance performances and the warm sea breeze perfumed by the tempting aromas of Afro-Brazilian Salvadorian cuisine. Salvador is a mix of African and Portuguese influences and the colonial architecture here demonstrates the huge wealth generated in the area in the eighteenth century from its plantations of sugar-cane and tobacco. Salvador is also home of the biggest carnival in the world where, unlike Rio, everyone joins in the throngs and floats which carry musicians through Salvador's streets. Please contact one of our consultants if you would live to attend the Carnival in Salvador.
You might also want to venture across the bay of Salvador and stay in the idyllic small town of Morro de Sao Paulo or head five hours inland to explore the breathtaking table top mountains and colourful caves of the Chapada Diamantina.
