More Than Models and Beaches: Your Travel Guide to Bahia, Brazil
You Need to Go: Morro de Sao Paulo
Salvador is lined with miles and miles of beach, so whether you’re staying in a beach front hotel, sipping a fresh limonada at a local restaurant, or riding the bus, you will see, smell, or hear the rolling surf of sea crashing against sand. But if you want to escape the hustle of Salvador, pick up the ferry to Morro de Sao Paulo near the Elevador Lacerda in Salvador’s Lower Town. The ferry costs 75 Brazilian Reais, and there’s a 12 Reais tourism tax when you dock. No cars allowed on the island, so long walks on the natural beaches add to the romance of the trip. Morro’s many luxe hotels offer plenty of opportunities pamper yourself. Click here for deets on lodging and visit the Morro Wiki page for more.
