Buses from Porto Seguro to Salvador/Rio
how long does it take by bus to link Porto Seguro to Salvador and to Rio de Janeiro? What cities would be nice places to stop on the way? Are there direct buses to/from Caraiva?
Thanks in advance,
RE: RE: Buses from Porto Seguro to Salvador/Rio
From Salvador to Porto Seguro, a good idea is the overnight bus (leito or semi-leito) which is pretty comfortable for sleeping (has a foot rest and seats that fully recline). It leaves from the rodoviaria about 8:30p.m. and arrives about 7a.m., with a couple of stops during the night. It's about R$90 one way. Usually your hotel/pousada/hostel can call for reservations (the bus is usually full) and arrange to have the ticket delivered for an extra R$3 so you don't have to waste time going to the bus station twice.
I've always gone to the beach by car with a friend who lives nearby, so I don't know the buses. But here's some bus info for Caraiva that I found in Portuguese:
Como Chegar de ônibus (how to arrive by bus):
Arraial D'Ajuda - Trancoso - Caraíva
Horários: 08:00 e 15:00 h (diariamente=daily)
Viação Águia Azul - te.: (73) 3875 1170
Caraiva's about 70km from Porto Seguro. You can get across the river to Arraial D'Ajuda from Porto Seguro by "balsa" (car ferry).
Travel Tips for Pôrto Seguro
I loved to stay in Cabralia instead of the center. The hotel ( Baia Cabralia) had a bus which went every night to the center after the dinner and they organised day excursions too. I took the regular boat to Santo Andre and it was great. Many interesting beaches to see. Cabralia is a small town but has everything you need.

The Reserve of the Jaqueira is an example for all Country, of as the ecological tourism in aboriginal lands can function. It is a way to use the natural resources, without degrading them.

Porto Seguro/Bahia-Where it all started in Brazil
"Smile...you are in Bahia!"
At the heart of Bahia state (with almost 1,200 kilometers of beaches) you can find Porto Seguro, first discovered by the Portuguese explorers 500 years ago. A place where tourists and locals party day and night, there's dancing, drinking and endless laughter. SORRIA :) VOCE ESTA NA BAHIA!! AQUI SO TEM ALEGRIA!!
"The Pataxó Indians"
The Pataxó (pronounced pa-ta-sho) are located in Porto Seguro/ Bahia state in the northeast of Brazil. The Pataxó are representative of those Indigenous people in Brazil living in the eastern, more heavily populated part of the country, rather than in the Amazon in the west or central parts of the country. The presence of the Pataxo in the region was already documented in year 1500 and later by several historical testimonies from 1805 on.
The history and culture of Brazil started in Porto Seguro, a town located at the beautiful ‘Discovery Coast’. The process of colonisation of Brazil started with the arrival of the Portuguese in the year 1500 in ‘Porto Seguro’, or ‘Safe Port’. So the houses are colourful and have a lot of the Portuguese influence.
