    • Transportation from Trancoso

      Trancoso Apr 23, 2015 at 4:40 PM

      Hi, I'm new here! I'm travelling from London to Trancoso in May! My return (domestic) flight is early in the morning (5.30am) from Porto Seguro.

      How is transportation like in the early hours of the morning (2-3am)? is there a reliable bus service that runs at that time or are taxis available? And around how much would it cost? How long should I allow for travel, and is it safe to travel at that time?

      Cheers for your time!

      morro de Sao Paulo or Praia do Forte

      Salvador da Bahia Jun 12, 2014 at 12:55 AM

      Hi All

      Going to have a bit of a break from touring whilst in Brazil, we (a couple in our mid 50's) will be in Salvador da Bahia for 6 or so days and just want a bit of quiet time by the beach. I'm tossing up between Morro de Sao Paulo or Praia do Forte for 3 days. We would like to do a bit of snorkeling, lying in the sun, reading a good book, does anyone have any suggestions, I'm open to other area's as well.

      Many thanks

    • Driving from Salvador - Where to stop on the road?

      Salvador da Bahia Jun 1, 2014 at 2:25 AM

      Hello all.

      We are 3 adults coming to watch world cup matches on a very tight schedule, therefore we have decided to rent cars for some of our travels (I have read all there is to read about driving in Brazil, and am aware of the dangers).

      Some of our car drives originate from Salvador or end there, and I would appreciate it very much if you could recommend nice and safe places along the road to stop and get gas, eat, refresh, go to the bathroom, watch matches on TV etc. for the following drives:

      1. Salvador to Fortaleza - We will probably drive inland via route BR-116 and not along the beach.

      2. Salvador to Belo Horizonte - Again, Route 116

      3. Brasilia to Salvador - Route 020, then 242 it seems

      The main issue for the stops along the way is safe and friendly places.

      Muito obrigado,

      We are visiting Brazil and Salvador at the end of June /early July. What will the weather be like at that time of the year? How long would you stay on Morro de Sao Paulo? Boipebe? Would a day boat trip be worth it or is it worth staying a few days in both spots?

    • where to stay in Salvador?

      Salvador da Bahia Nov 19, 2013 at 2:16 PM

      In which area of the city would you suggest me to stay? I've never been in Salvador, I would like to stay in a place like Copacabana, I mean: quite safe to walk anytime, always people around, both tourists and locals, with restaurant and bars. I'll be there for business and when I came back from job in the evening I'd like to have dinners and maybe some drinks at walking distance from the hotel.

      A plus would be staying not far from the north coast.
