Taxi from salvador airport to Iberostar Bahia hotel?

by kaywoo

Hi, We'll be arriving from a long flight, via Sao Paolo on Saturday afternoon 13th Feb, which I understand is carneval!We will just want to get to the hotel asap.Unfortunately the hotel does not provide a shuttle service and has only offered telephone numbers of some companies.Can anyone recommend a good reliable company I could book in advance via the internet/email rather than leave it until we arrive?
Any advice much appreciated

I am sure that there's a bored retired Mineiro or a Rio favelado that can get you that info. You are in such good hands that you certainly don't need my local input/info. If you decide you do, please PM me.

Travel Tips for Salvador da Bahia

New Year's Eve - Salvador Becomes One Big Party

by mircaskirca

On Reveillon (the New Year's Eve) Bahian capital Salvador becomes one big party. Although there are parties throughout the city, the main street celebrations happen in Barra district. They start in the early evening and continue until the early hours of the New Year's Day.

In front of the Farol da Barra (Bara Lighthouse) they build a huge stage where local stars perform. Streets are full of stalls selling traditional food and drink for all tastes. Thousands of people, most of them wearing white, are there ready for the longest night. Baianas on the beach in typical white dresses sing, dance and make offerings of flowers to Orixas (Candomble gods). New Year opens with synchronised fireworks at various points around the city that fill the sky with light and colour for 15 minutes.

Bahian food

by realde14

Bahian food is some of the best in Brazil. Spicey and heavy, it will require a strong stomach and plenty of beer to wash down.

The typical ingredients are mix between African and Brazilian and include coconut oil, hot peppers and shrimp. Try the Macueca, which is a fish stew served in simmering clay pot.

Itaparica Island
The island...

by martinelli

Itaparica Island

The island itself (in front of Salvador) is not something to drool for, in my opinion. Not Itaparica (maybe Frades or Madre de Deus). But crossing the All Saint Bay back and forth is absolutely marvelous.
This is a picture of Salvador from the sea...

Airport

by Subria

The airport of Salvador da Bahia has mainly domestic flights but also a few international departures, for example TAP daily to Lisbon or Condor weekly to Frankfurt. For flights within Brazil you can use Varig, TAM or the Low Cost Carrier GOL.
From the airport to the city center you have three options, taking a taxi is the fastest but also the most expensive. To save money take the executivo bus to Praca de Se or a local bus.
