  • It's a pretty cool day, boat trip on the river is an attraction in itself. I'm suspect to talk because it is native, but I've traveled a lot and I guarantee that by. Basically, on this ride you go bathing in the River, have contact with nature, take beautiful pictures with the background of mara, do a light trail until a dam and lunch at restaurant Grandchildren Gabriela. I went with a very lively and we had too much beer on the boat (which doesn't scale and you can't be sick). Super quiet ride for kids!

  • It's just a place that has a secular Church on the edge of cachoeirinha. The walls are of unusual thickness and had a wonderful font, carved in stone and it was stolen in a mysterious crime that has never been discovered. The place had cane mills and was the scene of one of the slave revolutions of the nineteenth century, although it will there has no historical reference. Today, it's a good shower above the falls and salty sweet, below it.

Where to stay in Ilheus

Thanks to the city's well-developed tourist infrastructure, you won't have any trouble finding accommodations in Ilheus. For a luxurious experience, stay in a resort or eco-lodge on the seashore, where you'll have easy beach access and a relaxed atmosphere. You can experience beach proximity at a fraction of the price by booking a private bungalow or beachside cabin. There's no better way to get a feel for the city's history, however, then by looking away from the center and staying on a cacao plantation in the nearby hills, where you'll be able to see how the "chocolate tree" is grown and harvested.
