Nowhere are the traditions of Brazil's African-background community as strong as in Salvador, the colorful, historical capital of Bahia state.
Step out of Salvador to go to Lauro de Freitas and see Afro Omon Ajagunan Museum, which is approximately 58 minutes away. Next up on the itinerary: wander the streets of Pelourinho, stroll through Flamengo Beach, examine the collection at Afro Brasileiro Museum, and admire all the interesting features of Itaipava Arena Fonte Nova.

Once the capital of Dutch Brazil, Recife has a history spanning back to 1537, when it was little more than a handful of fishing houses on the beach.
Venture out of the city with trips to Carneiros Beach (in Tamandare), Porto de Galinhas (Praia De Maracaipe, Natural Pools of Porto de Galinhas, & more) and Lookout Stone of Cogomelo (in Cabo de Santo Agostinho). There's still lots to do: see the interesting displays at Instituto Ricardo Brennand, take in the spiritual surroundings of Kahal Zur Israel Synagogue, deepen your understanding at Oficina Ceramica Francisco Brennand, and view the masterpieces at Atelier Vilanova.
