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.

  • This church is nice and beautiful, but it was closed when I went there, so I only saw it from outside. It is located close do the historical part of Ilheus and is located close to the beach.  more »
  • The cathedral could really use some renovation. It looks TERRIBLE on the outside. When that is said it is beautiful inside and worth a visit if you are there anyway.  more »
  • It is starting to detiorate externally. Inside it is like many another cathedral, If you are wandering arount the historical centre of Ilheus, it is worth 10 minutes, but not much more.  more »
