SALVADOR DA BAHIA
While everyone gets hype over visiting Rio, we’ve learned that the best kept Brazilian secret is Salvador da Bahia. This city often goes under the radar and is overshadowed by the two larger cities of Sao Paulo and Rio, which are situated 1,600 – 2,000+ miles south.
Salvador da Bahia has an energy and unadorned beauty that few cities can match. It is the country’s pulsing epicenter of Afro-Brazilian culture ! This trip was carefully thought to offer you the opportunity to immerse yourself in the Brazilian culture and to open your mind to discover new worlds and learn a bit of Portuguese along the way.
