Discover the best of northern Brazil

Brazil’s northeastern state of Bahia is where the seemingly opposite, classic Portuguese architecture and vibrant African culture collide to create a fascinating and truly unique blend.  This special melting pot of culture, architecture and traditions come together in the jewel-box of the colonial city of Salvador da Bahia. Here, the cobblestone streets and stunning colonial architecture acts as the backdrop to capoeira dances and, houses the restaurants that serve up the best of the country’s Afro-Brazilian food. Outside of the city of Salvador is the spectacular Chapada Diamantina National Park where you’ll be staring in awe at high-rise waterfalls, hike to the top of tabletop mountains to watch the sunset and dive into crystal clear pools in the heart of a cave. With all this adventure, the region offers up some of Brazil’s best beaches which can be enjoyed from the quaint town of Morro de São Paulo which is nothing short of a tropical paradise.
