Bahia is the hub of Brazil's Afro-Brazilian tradition and culture and the streets of the colonial city of Salvador, the capital of Bahia, are alive with this undying energy. The pulsing beats of frequent percussion displays fill the air, creating a spirit that flows through this city and gives off a contagious, electric vibe.
To gain a fresh insight into the abundance of culture, lose yourself for an afternoon wandering the pretty cobbled colonial streets, visit some of the dance shows, or even take percussion class. Bahia boasts Brazil's most beautiful and tropical beaches. Transcoso, Corumbau and Itacare being amongst the most stunning. From unadorned beauty to music and dance to food, culture, tradition, this region has it all.
