If you are already in Brazil, it is cheaper to take a bus from a major city than to fly. You can take a bus from Salvador. It is an overnight bus ride that takes around 12 hours.

Get around

If you are staying in the down town area, you can walk most places. You can actaully walk down the hill from the bus station to down town. If you are unfamiliar with the city and have bags, it's better to get a taxi.

If you book tours, they will provide transportation. There is also a bus system if you want to get out of down town. To see Arraial d’Ajuda, take the ferry across the river and take a bus to Arraial.


  • Replica of Pedro Alvares Cabral's Ship. You can walk there from down town. It's North of down town on the beach.
