DAY 2 - Salvador

Breakfast at the hotel. This morning depart on a half day Historical City Tour (upper city) Duration: 4 hrs. We start in the modern suburb of Barra at the mouth of the Bay with it's famous lighthouse and make our way slowly by car or coach to the old historical section of town, the Pelourinho area with the largest and best preserved complex of colonial architecture in the America's. We stroll through the narrow, bustling streets lined with buildings in pastel shades of an age gone by, soaking in the sights and sounds of this vibrant city. We visit the church of São Francisco with its exuberant gold-leafed Baroque interior and the Pelourinho square, the heart of the old town. We return to our vehicle and hotel by an alternative route. This tour shows two distinct aspects of Salvador, the new and the old, concentrating on the early expansion of the city and is a very good orientation for those wishing to further explore the city. 
Afternoon at leisure. 
This evening is a showcase of the multiple African traditions still so much alive in Bahia. Hotel pick up and drive to one of Salvador?s leading churrascarias, an all-you-can-eat barbeque restaurant with an extensive salad and sushi buffet, as well as buffet of hot seafood dishes, and of course the traditional meat rodizio where waiters serve a wide variety of meat cuts on skewers at the table. 
After dinner the evening?s entertainment begins with the sacred dances of the Candomblé, then puxada de rede in honor of Yemanjá, the goddess of the sea, followed maculelê, an acrobatic stick and sword dance from the cane fields. The highlight of the show is an exhilarating display of capoeira, the stunning martial art/dance of Angolan origin. The show ends with the samba de roda, a spinning, swirling version of this exuberant national dance. Overnight at hotel.

PASSPORT/VISA: 

  • Brazil has a reciprocal visa policy with all countries, meaning that whenever prices and restrictions are applied to Brazilian visiting a country, Brazil adopts the same measures for that country's visitors, which means that Americans have to pay at least US$131 for a tourist visa and US$191 for a business visa.
