great location for:

The capital of Brazil for over two centuries, Salvador is an historic city with an abundance of fine colonial architecture. The capital of the state of Bahia, Salvador also enjoys a wonderful maritime setting on the bay of Todos os Santos.

An previously important staging post for the slave trade, modern day Salvador is a melting pot of Latin and West African culture. The old town is a mixture of brightly painted colonial houses, cobbled streets, fine churches and floral courtyards. Regarded by many as the creative capital of Brazil, live music and dancing can be found on almost every street corner. Travel a short distance out of town to find a pristine, tropical and marine rich coastline.
