Bahian Jewels of Brazil - Salvador, Chapada Diamantina & Beach

Brazil

This memorable journey begins in the vibrant town of Salvador, the first colonial capital of Brazil. Salvador is a colourful fusion of Afro-Brazilian culture, Portuguese colonial architecture and boasts a beautiful tropical coastline. In the city, you are based at the charming Casa Amarelindo, a characterful, restored mansion in the heart of the historic Pelourinho district. Bring your hiking boots for Chapada Diamantina, the ‘diamond highlands’. Although no diamonds have been seen in recent times, the area remains a jewel for those who love the great outdoors, with sweeping views and dramatic landscapes. The best place to stay here is Pousada Canto das Aguas, built beside a river that runs through the cobble-stoned streets of the town of Lencois. Discover stunning flat-topped mountains, secret blue caves, forested valleys and beautiful waterfalls. After your outdoor adventure, you return to the city of Salvador for one more night before heading to Praia do Forte for an idyllic beach stay at Tivoli Ecoresort.
