Moving to Salvador

by expat2007 Online Now Oct 22, 2006 at 10:52 AM

Hello fellow members,
I'm arriving in Salvador for the first time this Thursday, the 26th, and plan to look for a flat in or near Barra. I would be gratefull for any advice you could give me regarding looking for flats, recommended hostels in Barra to stay in while I look for a flat, etc. And if you're available to meet me for coffee to tell me about the area and where I should and should not venture, that would be very helpfull too. Thank you for your time. See you in Salvador.

    The most complete site for Salvador is:
    There is some info there regarding an American real estate agent who is accredited and lives in Salvador. The site also talks about various bairros (neighborhoods).

    The local newspaper A Tarde also has a lot of ads (classificados)for apartment (apartamento or apto) rentals (aluga). You can select by neighborhood. Mobiliada = furnished. Temporada = short-term.

    Get a good guidebook too, like Lonely Planet, to get started finding out about the city.
