  • The dregs of the mata atlantica in Salvador you can see there. Recommend cycling and hiking. take the kids to play.

  • Park with beautiful natural landscapes, great for cycling-which can be rented on site. Ideal for weekends, during the week is very empty and not recommend for lack of security. On weekends has motorized security covering the trails of the Park. The site does not have an ideal structure, but la ´ you find a simple restaurant with good options on the menu, in addition to several types of snack stalls and to wander beyond the bike, pedal boat, has lead to skates and playground.

  • The Park is great for walking and cycling tours, too. In some places give a certain fear because it is isolated without security. Already there are families living in the Park.

  • Nice park to drive around on bycikles that you can rent on a site. Great to spend afternoon with family and kids. There was visible security through the park so it feels safe. Park has also a lake that you can explore on canoe or "swan like" pedal floats. If you like modern art and sculptures, it is a great place to see artwork of Brazilian sculptor Mario Cravo. Unfortunately the sculptures have seen better days, so I would not wait to see these too long..
  • Ok
  • Don't go. Horrible park with little to do other than watching people splash the unswimmable water on themselves.
  • Top!
  • Ok

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.
