    Lancha to "Mar Grande" Itaparica.

    If you plan to go to the island of Itaparica, i recommend to go to Mar Grande. As i see it this island is overexposed, and less than interresting! Many talk about those beautiful beaches and the fantastic waters, but i think they are quite muddy, and the water is unclear.
    The restaurants are expensive, and all places but Mar Grande seem desserted. Even the main town is desserted....Spookey!!!
    Anyway i recommend the trip back and forth, with the little boat, that you catch from the habour behind Mercado Modelo Down Town. The ticket cost around 4-5 R$ each way, and i would take the tour just to enjoy the views. You can buy drinks onboard, and it is often a boat full of happyholliday guests.

    Not always there are ports at the islands, and not always the ships can approach to the coast, so put your handbag over your head, and begin to walk through the water!

    No siempre hay puertos en las islas, y no siempre las embarcaciones se pueden aproximar a la costa, así que ponte tu bolso sobre la cabeza, y comienza a caminar por el agua!

    To visit the several islands of the bay, you must take a saveiro (ship); they are quite picturesque.

    Para vistiar las numerosas islas de la bahía, se debe abordar un "saveiro"; estas embarcaciones son muy pintorescas.

    If you don't have much time, hate highways or simple would prefer to take a ship rather than a bus, you might like what Salvador has to offer. Not many people know that, but you can take the Ferry or Catamara (porsh speed boat) to many places in the state, like Camamu, Itacare, Ilha Grande, Porto Seguro and Morro de Sao Paulo. The trip is lovely, although the prices might not be as cute as the bus ticket ones. Want to check it all out? Go to www.comab.com.br and click along!
