Bring all your bras!
Luggage and bags: A light suitcase as the allowance is only 20KG... you don't want the weight of your suitcase taking up half of that!
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: I took with me all kinds of shoes that I didnt need... All that is needed are flip flop... That is all you will find that you will wear. Maybe a pair of heels if you plan on going to clubs and even then you can wear flip flops.
Ladies any bras you are going to need bring them! I thought I would buy a strapless bra when I got there... only to discover NO bra and cup sizes simply Medium, Small or Large and I went to loooads of shops... so just remember that!
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Anything you need bring it with you. I thought Id just get alot of stuff when I got there but then wouldnt be able to find what I needed... so if it is essential bring it!
Funny story I wanted to get indigestion tablets and I thought I did a good job explaining at the Chemists... Tell me why I ended up with Laxatives... oh yes!
Photo Equipment: If you have a digital camera put them on to disk every so often and then you can mail it back to yourself in case you lose them... It is cheap and quick to do

Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Did you read the previous tip? Well, this one is just the contrary. Don't forget your umbrella or your raincoat, because it rains a lot!!!
¿Leíste el consejo anterior? Bueno, éste es exactamente lo contrario. No olvides tu paraguas o impermeable, ¡¡¡porque llueve un montón!!!
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: If you want to look like a tourist bring rain gear. The locals take cover under a store awning and wait out the rain or just get wet if they have to keep moving.
Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: If you're planning to go to any beaches be sure to bring sun screen with you. It's very expensive down there.
Miscellaneous: Be careful with Bahian sun!!! Take your sun block (and use it).
Ten cuidado con el sol bahiano!!! Lleva tu protector solar (y úsalo).
