Bahia (locally [baˈi.ɐ]) is one of the 26 states of Brazil and is located in the northeastern part of the country on the Atlantic coast. It is the 4th-largest Brazilian state by population (after São Paulo, Minas Gerais, and Rio de Janeiro) and the 5th-largest by area. Bahia's capital is the city of Salvador (formerly known as "Cidade do São Salvador da Bahia de Todos os Santos", lit. "City of Holy Saviour of All Saints Bay"), located on a spit of land separating the Bay of All Saints from the Atlantic. Once a monarchial stronghold dominated by agricultural, slaving, and ranching interests, Bahia is now a major manufacturing center whose last three elections have been dominated by the Workers' Party.

Sometimes called the "city within a city," this old part of Salvador is worth visiting for its cobblestone streets, pastel-colored buildings, churches, restaurants, shops and nightlife.
It's very touristic of course, but it's absolutely charming and beautiful. Lovely Caribbean vibes, great to walk around. Don't stray to the non-touristic side as this is effectively a favela with high crime rates, stay by the church and to the left of it and you'll have a great time. Check out the restaurant Cuco Bistrot if you want excellent food.

I went to many places in Chapada Diamantina in this trip. Some places I visited this time, even though I liked them, I don't intend to visit them again. Cachoeira do Buracao, however, is the place to come back many many times. It is wonderful and fun! I had never been in a place like that.

We spent a 3-day hiking tour in the Pati Valley with the tour operator Diamantina Mountains. The valley is obviously an incredibly beautiful place. To enjoy all the major sights (Cachoeira do Funis, Morro do Castelo, Cachoeirao, etc.) you will have to descent and mount around 300-500m in altitude each day, so be sure to stretch each morning and come a little prepared ;). We stayed both nights at Dona Raquel's lovely house where we had excellent food and comfortable beds. Showers are cold but at least you won't waste water :). Look out for the blinking fireflies in the evening.
Be sure to come with well broken-in hiking shoes, as riverbeds, mountain descents and even the trail can be slippery at times. Plus your feet will thank you after each day of walking. Also pack lightly, and bring enough water bottles which you can refill at the native's houses and at some sources throughout the valley. Your guide knows the places and the water qualitity is excellent! A good, small flashlight is important for the nights and the cave on the Morro do Castelo. Bring swimwear for the Waterfalls and natural pools, and a jacket for the cool evenings. When you organise your trip, be careful with the flights. We wanted to fly on our way back but the plane could not land due to the weather conditions. This seems to happen quite regularly...
Thanks to Diamantina Mountains, we had a blast in the Chapada Diamantina and we will definitely come back for a longer stay next time.

Definitely something to not miss while in Lençois. Great hike with beautiful scenery leading to the falls. Depending on the amount of rain, the falls may go all the way down, be pushed up due to the wind, or have very little water altogether.
Great place overlooking a drop of 1,000 feet from the top.
Wonderful hike not to be missed. About 2.25 - 3 hours going in, and 1.5 - 3 hours coming out.

That's it. The beach is alittle bit far from "Barra Grande". You can use a "jardineira" to get there or rent a small all terrain everywhere at the village. Ask at your hostel.
The place is very good for snorkeling or scuba. Pay attention at the tidal chart.

We asked Ronaldo, a local guide from Morere ( ask for him at Pousada Mangueira) to take us on a day hike from Morere to Ponta de Castelhanos. He is very knowledgable about the area and organized a boat to take us across the river. They then also took us to Cova da Onca for an lovely lunch and back to the Mangrove swamp for our mesmerizing hike back. What an experience.
No meio deste ano, estivemos na surpreendente Terima. Agora em novembro de 2017, hospedamo-nos no Costa Brasilis, em Santo Andre, assim mesmo fizemos questão de revisitar a Terima da Mucugê (tem uma na Passarela do Álcool) e, ao adentrar nessa loja replay de Bali, senti a mesma emoção suspirante de outrora.
Logo na entrada a novidade das luzes natalinas, existentes também em seu estonteante indoor.
Como sabemos, a Terima Kashi (muito obrigado em indonésio) é uma loja de artes de decoração para casa, mais roupas e alguns móveis (no andar de cima), bem como diversas peças artesanais de Bali para presentes e decorações

Mucugê st. is the soul of Arraial, a very charming little street that winds its way to the beach at daytime, and gets full of life at nighttime. It's full of shops and restaurants. A must!

I have known Ponta do Corumbau for more than 10 years . Last January was my 3rd time.
Normally for several reasons one has deteriorated conditions for attractions like that one
However , so far tha has not been the case. The infrastucture which was initially minimal has imporved with good "Pousadas" and a net of eating places which will cover your needs for any lenght of time you choose to stay. The water conditions and the beauty of the place remain
the same. It is specially advisable to go there out of the high season spells to avoid excess of visitors, and in high moon tides one would profit from higher variations of water levels, which will change the scene quite dramatically. One could reach the place through boat rent from Cumuruxatiba, by public buses from Caraíva/Porto Seguro
