Salvador de Bahía

Brazil's first capital sits on a peninsula overlooking the bay that gave the state its name: Bahia. For Brazilians, Bahia is synonymous both with a more relaxed pace of life and a special intensity in all that Brazil represents: colour, music and religiousness. The Pelourinho, which means whipping post, as the old town centre is called, hosts a wealth of Baroque churches and colonial-style architecture.

This fantastic tour takes you out into the Baía de Todos Los Santos (Bay of All Saints), to two of the many islands with lush tropical vegetation and pristine beaches.

Once the schooner drops anchor, you can relax and swim in the warm, clear water at one of the island’s most beautiful beaches. Next, the tour continues to Itaparica, the largest island in the bay and an important historical site. You will get acquainted with Itaparica Island (Ponta de Areia), and you will be able to savor the delicacies of Bahian cuisine. There’s enough time in the remainder of the afternoon to enjoy this beautiful tropical location. As the sun sets, you reboard the schooner for the trip back to Salvador.
