There’s more to do in Bahia Brazil than its stunning beaches (Bahia Brazil beaches are famously beautiful and the province has the most coastline of any in Brazil). What more can you do? Lots of things associated with Brazil comes from Bahia – capoeira, samba, carnival etc. The capital city of Salvador has a historic centre that is UNESCO listed. The Salvador Carnival can rival Rio in its fun street party atmosphere. Outside Salvador, you will find national parks (including one visited by Charles Darwin) and colonial villages where African slaves created their own Afro-Catholic religion.
On our trips to Brasil, I really regret that we did not have the time to make it to the Northeastern Province of Bahia. Our expat friends went to the Salvador Carnival in Bahia before they took us to the Carnival in Rio de Janeiro.
