Hey, I actually went on there last night and found daniel there.. so what was your experience with the rental, was it in a nice area and what a prices like per day? Any info would be greatly appreciated. Also, did you go during carnival time? If so, are you able to maneuver along the streets in the day time or is it just so packed that its overwhelming??

I didn't go during Carnaval, I would expect the prices to be 3-4 times as expensive during that time. I was happy with the apartment in the Barra area near the lighthouse, fronting the beach. Bahia-online is the middle man who knows the actual real estate agent, and takes about 20-25% for the service. The key is to find an agent or individual with an apartment to rent on your own to get the really good deals. But if you're starting from ground zero, not knowing anyone, without any leads, Daniel is a good source.

Travel Tips for Salvador



Some say that Rio's got the most amazing carnival. If you consider the customes, then I'd agree. But the party is DEFINATELY in Salvador.
I could write pages and pages of my experience for the Carnival in Salvador. I just want to say that it's great. It's the best party you'll ever have.
There are 3 ways to "live" Salvador's carnival. These are my recommendations.
1. BLOCO (the safest and most wild): a bloco consists of 2 trucks and a whole bunch of people. In the first truck there will be a band playing. In the second truck, a bar and bathrooms. And the people, all around the trucks. The thing is that they travel all around town, dancing. You've got to pay the fee (usually a 3-day fee or a 6-day fee) and you can wear their uniform. This is the safest way to experience the Carnival.
2. CAMAROTES: These are parties overlooking the streets where the blocos pass on. They're more expensive, and boring. They have this cocktail first, then they'll spend hours wathching the blocos pass by, dancing at their rhytm, and then there will be a private party. Quite safe, and more expensive than blocos. Recommended for people that don't want to party a lot, and for the ones that get tired easily. Not for me.
3. STREET: You can always watch the blocos go by behind the cordeiros. It's quite crowded and quite dangerous. Most of the poor people don't have access to pay the bloco fee, so they party outside. If they see that you're a tourist, they'll probably try to steal something from you.
Anyway, after the whole walk, the bloco leaves, and you'll end up in the street. But everyone else will do the same, so it'll be safer. By the time the bloco gets to the end, you'll be wasted, so all you want will be a bed.
