Bahia is huge and full of wonderful places to escape to breath some clean air and unwind in astounding tropical surroundings. Although Salvador is the place most foreign travellers find themselves staying, because of the international airport, it is just a fraction of what Bahia really has to offer. Catch a plane or take an extended road trip outside the city and you will discover rural Bahia. Deserted beaches, clear waters, jungle and dirt roads are backdrops to some idyllic pousadas, where eco-consciousness, pampering activities and incredible landscapes, provide great ways to simply chill out off the beaten track. Here are just a few:

Massage and rejuvenation: Art Jungle Eco Lodge & Spa, Itacar
Amazing tree & stilt-houses with beautiful views over the river. Enjoy Reike, energy balance and massage treatments to rejuvenate in jungle paradise. Get a special 20% book direct discount

Snorkelling paradise: Pousada Lagoa do Cassange, Lagoa do Cassange, Mara
Eco-lodge offering sophistication and informality-right on the beach. A trip wouldn’t be complete without snorkelling in the crystal waters of Taipu de Fora.

Ocean life and natural swimming pools: Pousada Mangueira, Boipeba (Morer)
Lush gardens and hidden tranquility only a minute from Morere beach. Swim in the natural swimming pools of the island, and be at one with ocean life, feeding the amazing tropical fish and snorkelling amidst breathtaking varieties of coral.
