What to do? It depends on your interest. Basically Salvador is a beach town with very strong cultural connection with some countries of Africa. The old city is a testament of its glorious past. During the colonial times, sugar cane and tobacco production led the development and the slaves were brought in from Africa to work the fields. Consequentely, Salvador has a very rich culture with African twist. Just ask if you have anymore questions. Enjoy your stay. :)

Hi Francesca. I am glad that youa re going to spend a few nights in Morro de São Paulo. It used to be a fishing village with beautiful beaches. Many foreigners visited the area and decided to stay and opened many guest house. Today is a mix of tourists and some locals during the long weekend. If you enjoy deserted beach, Boipeba is just south of Morro.
