    Good conservation. Great cleaning. Calm, clean, with pleasant temperature. There is no structure to full power, only cookies, portions with drinks. 6 actual rate for landing on the island. Unfortunately the weather was not very sunny. Recommend.

    Worth knowing. Hire a schooner cruise by the Todos os Santos Bay and enjoy the beautiful view and the dip in the hot sea of Bahia. The beach on the island of Friars where boats make the stop is very quiet.

Where to stay in Salvador

The majority of accommodations in Salvador fall into three distinct groupings. If you want to be close to the best historical attractions, stay in or near the old town of Pelourinho, a few minutes from the city's west-facing coastline. This also puts you in the heart of Salvador's tourist-driven nightlife. Your second option is to stay at the southwestern tip of the city, in the neighborhood of Barram, where you'll have instant access to one of Salvador's favorite beaches. Finally, look a bit farther afield to Rio Vermelho, a quieter beachside neighborhood facing south.
