  • A model of poverty, filth, overpriced trinkets; tourists not come! A postcard of the city dumped, without any accessibility, the tourist comes and comes a swarm of beggars and sellers being impossible to see something and walk the small crowded corridors. Disappointing!! The city tour passes through places poor and degraded beyond confused traffic.

  • I've been in this January 2018. The place is too hot in the summer. The hint, avoid the afternoon.

  • Always nice to visit. Especially when you're in search of presents. Lots of handicrafts.
  • Great place to pick up souvenirs and gifts. Don't be afraid to haggle!
  • More or less same stuff you can buy at the local airport, but in a greater variety and more fun to shop here. Mercado Modelo hasn't changed for last 10 years. The neighborhood is pretty dangerous by night.
  • It's just a bunch of souvenir shops. The food is very expensive. The street food is a better option.
  • Mostly tourist tat, but join the local revellers at the back for some boisterous beers and fabulous fried algulha fish.

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.
