Salvador & Trancoso Tour
In Salvador, The African influence can be felt by all five senses.
Learn traditional rhythms, dance, religion and cuisine. Anyone visiting Salvador will immediately discover why the state is called “the land of happiness”. Fringed by beaches, vast coconut plantations, majestic mountain ranges, Salvador’s local exuberance is expressed in an unbelievably rich folklore, which includes capoeira, candomble and samba-reggae. We spend three days exploring this historical destination in style.
Next, a short flight to Porto Seguro and the Hippy Chic Village of Trancoso. Trancoso is really 2 cities, the beaches or lower part where beach front resorts reside in tune with nature along side a river that flows into the sea and the upper cliff side Quadrado “square” where all the colonial looking shops, restaurants and pousadas make a “Chic Village”.
Brazil magazines call the Quadrado “hippy Chic”, Travel and Leisure calls it “Simple Rusticity”, maybe its both, but for certain it’s a seasonal playground for the Sao Paulo hot crowds during their summer (Dec – March) but really offers good climate year around and great beaches to kickback and relax, sip caipirinhas and eat great food. At night the lanterns and samba music fill the night, in the afternoon the shops close and the street vendors with their Hippy jewelry take center stage. In the evening stroll to the village “Quadrado” and join in the nightly festivities.
