bus to Salvador

by olaleye4

We are two girls thinking of going by bus to Salvador from recife on 11/12th Feb 2010 for the Salvador carnival ( that starts on the 11th)
Does anyone know if this is possible (11th is a Thursday)
We arrive in Recife onthe 8th so can't book until then. Do you think this is leaving it too late & it will be difficult to get a seat because of carnival. Also does anyone know how much it is, how long it takes or if you can prebook on line at all!!!

Yes. Your plan may be achieved. But you will need some portuguese/spanish talking skill in order to dealing with operator.
Viação Itapemirim S/A serves both cities.

I got in touch with operator and attendant told me you may book bus tickets 60 days in advance. Use international credit card and call up 0800 723 2121. I hope clerk is english talkative.

Many buses go from Salvador to Recife every day. So you may choose hour of departure and kind of trip (night bus, lying down seat, special for tourists)...
This is the best brazilian bus company that serves both cities. There is another bus company named Nossa Senhora da Penha that is ready for this public utility as well.

Good luck. Recife is 840Km far from Salvador in paved road. I believe 10 hours you will spend at this journey. And buy your ticket as soon as possible. Carnival season is a disorder down here.

I will also be traveling to Bahia for Carnival - probably coming from Sao Paulo. As of right now, I am traveling by myself but always interested in meeting traveling partners.

Did you get a response as to how to book a bus from Salvador to Recife? Also I am looking for fun hostels to stay - have you heard of any fun ones in either Salvador or Recife?

En el Centro de la ciudad, se haya La Casa de la Cultura (ver foto), que alberga todo tipo de artesanos y muestras de diferentes aspectos de la cultura brasileña, pero principalmente alberga tragicas historias de los origenes de este local, que en tiempos de la Colonia, sirvió como recinto carcelario, para un gran población penal

Parque das Esculturas de Brennand

by ThiagoRamos

Brennand´s Sculptures Park was inaugurated in 2000 as part of the celebrations for the 500th anniversary of the discovery of Brazil. The main sculpture is the Crystal Column, made of bronze and clay, with 32 meters high.

Francisco Brennand is a talented local artist, born in 1927. He is famous mainly for his work with pottery.

I had no time to visit the park, but managed to take some pictures from my catamaran tour. It seems very interesting and worth a visit. Pernambucanos are very proud of this place.

Beaches...beaches...beaches...There are excellent beaches south of Recife, with a calm sea, crystal clear waters, white sand dunes, and friendly people. The reef that protects the city runs parallel to the coast for many miles, and the entire region offers outstanding dive opportunities. Fishing villages dot this part of the coast, and these are excellent places to dine on fresh-caught seafood

Recife - in my opinion BORING

by riquito

"Recife - in my opion BORING"

Recife is a city and seaport in north-eastern Brazil, capital of the state of Pernambuco, on the Atlantic Ocean, near the eastern most tip of South America. The city, one of the largest in Brazil, is divided by waterways into separate districts. Major districts include São José, a commercial and financial district on a peninsula; Boa Vista, a business and residential district on the mainland; and Santo Antônio, a governmental district on Antônio Vaz Island. Its principal industries are importing and exporting, sugar refining, cotton milling, iron working, pineapple canning, tomato preserving, and the manu facturing of cement, asbestos, paper, roofing, and leather goods. Because of its many waterways, Recife is sometimes called the Venice of America.

But - no halfway intelligent human being would take a bath in that water, because it is suage. P I S S and S H I T , rats anything is in it - SUAGE and that in the middle of the city.
