  • Mercado Modelo

    Salvador da Bahia Off The Beaten Path

    Just about everyone who goes to Salvador has been to Mercado Modelo, but whenever I go down to the basement, I rarely see a living soul. At the end of the building, where the Capoeira dancers perform, before leaving the building, turn right or left going toward the staircase that leads to the second level. You will see a spiral staircase going...

Its shallow waters are surrounded by palms, mangroves and other coastal trees, dotted with small islands, and home to numerous species of birds.

    Well , I thought I could make an Intro Page for each place if the page was about a whole state. But that was obviously a mistake... So here goes my first tip about Mangue Seco , the northeastern most village of Bahia , at the tip of a peninsula formed by the Rio Real. Basically no practical way to get there by land it is advisable to take a boat...

  • Perfect for Lazy Afternoons

    Getting to Maraú is easier from Itacaré. You just cross the river, and drive a couple of hours (4x4 recommended, as the roads have deep patches of sand).Once there, just relax . . .In Maraú:NaturaPura Eco Resort (http://www.naturapura.com.br - 73. 258.2181).Not the cheapest, but certainly the nicest.

  • Ilha de Boipeba

    Chegando a Boipeba:O mais legal realmente é pegar o barco que sai de Graciosa (um vilarejo ao sul de Valença). Há barcos “popó” – quase gaiolas – em horários regulares e “lanchas rápidas”, que cobram um preço fixo para até três pessoas e saem quando houver pagamento. O passeio pelo Rio do Inferno é muito bonito.Há passeios “mico” que saem de Morro...

Há também, uma estrada *precária* - não recomendável sem 4x4 - que vai cruzando fazendas a partir da Barra do Cahy. Vá de barco: uma bela vista do Parque Nacional do Monte Pascoal, e uma parada para snorkeling nos Recifes do...

    De Caravelas para Cumuruxatiba: Se estiver de carro, tranqüilo. Senão, vá de ônibus até o Prado, e de lá pegue um táxi. A viagem do Prado a Cumuru é tranqüila - 50km em estrada de terra bem batida. Na verdade, há duas estradas (ambas de terra): uma mais curta, que vai "por dentro" e uma secundária, que vai beirando as falésias. Foi esta que eu pedi...
