Porto Seguro

(4.2/5 based on 60,000+ reviews for top 30 attractions)
Things to do: beaches, sightseeing, historic sites
In a sense, Porto Seguro is where Brazil as a country began, marking the spot where Portuguese explorers first arrived in the 16th century. Nowadays, its small but appealing historical center is surrounded by a fairly gritty city of around 140,000 people, which parties wildly by night and moves sleepily by day. Tourism in Porto Seguro serves as the city's main industry, with visitors from all over the world flocking to its beaches and enjoying the abundance of nearby national parks and outdoor activities. The city's international airport makes coming and going from Porto Seguro a breeze. Our Brazil vacation builder combines visitor reviews with your personal interests to make an itinerary informed by experts, but tailored to suit your style.

Where to stay in Porto Seguro

Luxury hotels and beach resorts are the name of the game when it comes to accommodations in Porto Seguro, with many tourists looking to relax and enjoy the coastal atmosphere. Most of these lie a couple of miles north of the city center, pressed up against long stretches of beach. To enjoy the party scene and get close to the best things to see in Porto Seguro, stay in the narrow streets of the old town. However, if the nightlife seems a bit too intense for your taste, consider the plentiful options in Arraial d'Ajuda--a smaller, quieter town just a couple of miles to the south.
