Most visited destination for international tourism and the Brazilians themselves. Crowds of foreigners coming to the Bay from all corners of the world and usually stay a bit more than I had anticipated.
Thousand miles of beaches for all tastes and all expectations, a singular role in the colonial history of the country, an invitation to leisure and ecological treasures with a colorful folklore, which translates into dance, music, revelry and nightlife varied. All this, coupled with its delightful and typical marine cuisine, in addition to the hundreds of attractions and points subdestinos in both Salvador and elsewhere in the state makes an unforgettable Bay.
