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.

  • When you hear talk of Castro Alves Square, a huge place, because of the greatness of your Carnival. However, the place is small, but it is still an attraction worth a visit.

  • I've always heard Castro Alves square due to the Carnival that's why I was disappointed with the size of the square. It is very small and not worth the visit.

  • The square itself has no nothing too significant, but a statue carved in bronze of the poet Castro Alves, measuring 2.34 meters high and opened there as monument on day 6 July 1923. The square is well known because of the trios that pass through it at the time. And also we must not forget the beautiful sunset you have there, as well as the stunning views of the lower city, gleaming in the distance the Mercado Modelo, Elevador Lacerda and the Forte de São Marcelo, among other buildings and ancient monuments and historic. For this, it is worth to be visited.
