Best of Brazil


Porto Seguro

Porto Seguro (literally safe port), in the southern part of Bahia state, is a very popular tourist location and a monumental city in that it marks the point of discovery of Brazil with the arrival of the Portuguese in 1500. . If you stay in Porto Seguro, you can visit the Cidade Alta, which marks the spot of one of the first settlements in Brazil. From here you can get a superb view of the surrounding landscape and visit the old churches and ruins. Here you can see capoeira shows. The town itself has no beaches and for this reason most people take the 5 minute ferry trip across to Arraial d'Ajuda, which is smaller and more primitive but has an abundance of pleasant and comfortable pousadas as well as some of the most beautiful beaches in Brazil. Across the water in Arraial some of the roads are still unpaved and things happen at a much slower pace. It comes to life at night though with most of the action centered along the main street called Broduai (Broadway) and the Mucugé street. There are many restaurants, shops and artisans. Also popular is the village of Trancoso, about 30 km further south, which has incredible white-sand beaches as well as colorful colonial buildings. However, the nightlife is much more relaxed than in Arraial. Trancoso can be reached by bus or more easily by hiring a dune buggy. To rent a buggy in Porto Seguro try Canabrava at (73) 3288 3877, and in Arraial d'Ajuda, Aluggy Buggy at (73) 3575 1096.
