Going to Salvador da Bahia, Brazil March 4-17

by Creatimprov

Hello, will be traveling to Salvador in March and would like to know what precautions should I take with using a camcorder? Also what kinds of health precautions should I take? Thanks.

Beside the usual required/suggested vaccinations, you should have little problem. I have always found the water to be filtered and safe (in ice and for brushing teeth). Cold bottled water is available everywhere as well. Food has never been a problem either.

I would not advise using a camcorder, especially if not in a group. Bring a small digital that fits in a small waist-pack and keep it there between shots. Do not bring anything to Brazil that you would hesitate to give up or would regret losing.

These two links above presents Bahia to foreigners. I suggest you read "Tourist Support" and "Fast Guide". Steal something to somebody are often events in Salvador. There´s to many poor people in Salvador. Be careful with your electronic gadgets. Be sure the place you'll be in Salvador is empty of crooks and double dealing natives. I am not from Salvador but I'm brazilian

Amazing natural wonders - CHAPADA DIAMANTINA

by hunab_ku

The Chapada Diamantina National Park is unique with its wonderful landascapes, waterfalls, canyons, natural swimming pools...

Culture and Ecotourism in the Vale do Capao : Many tourists are going to Lençois, but if you are looking for a place out of the beaten path, don´t want to be packed in minivans with 15 people to go for a trekking, don´t hesitate and come here. This valley is so close from the main trekkings and offers amazing natural views.

The valley possess a diversified culture with very hospitable people gathered around a lifestyle directed to human development and respect of nature. The valley congregates art, workmanship and sustainable activities such as organic agriculture, medicinal herbs, phytotherapy, honey, theater, chorale, circus, dances and tourism committed with the conservation of the natural patrimony.

Where to sleep: LENDAS DO CAPAO is a pousada incorporated to the nature in a beautiful setting right in the Valley. River, sacred sauna, restaurant. They propose a 56 m2 chalet in a centennial jack tree 9m above ground ! Very friendly owner. They organize trekkings.

For budget travellers, the pousada SEMPRE VIVA offers cheap rooms. 3 minutes walk from the town center.

2 great trekkings:
Fumaca Waterfall : The highest free fall of Brazil, trek starts 2km away form the valley do Capao. Beautiful !

Torrinha cave and Pai inácio hill: spectacular cavern with unique stalactites, stalagmites, and crystal formations. After this hike, you can swim in an underground river and see fishes and turtles deep in its crystal waters. After this you'll watch the sunset at the top of the Pai Inácio Hill unveiling a gorgeous panoramic view of the region.

How to get there: From Salvador, get a ticket at the bus station to PALMEIRAS. (44 Reals - 6/7 hours). 3 departures a day: 7am, 4.30 pm and 11.30 pm. take warm closes in the bus because of the A/C.

Pereira is especially busy on weekends when Salvador's young and beautiful gather to preen and be seen. Age 20-50. Ideal for Lunch, dinner or if it is just for a drink get there at 9pm. Dress up!

The best Pizza in Bahia!

by MulattaCarioca about Sabor Brasil

There is nothing special about this place. it's got plastic chairs & serves cold beer, but that is the beauty of it. It serves, quite possibly, the best pizza in the state and cold Skol. It's just around the corner from Pelourinho, far enough to keep the begging street kids from you, but close enough to the action. Pizza, plain & simple. I think the one we ordered had garlic & oil in lieu of sauce.

DELISH!
