Arrival in Salvador

Day 1

Arrive in Salvador da Bahia, a historic city on the northern coast of Brazil. Leave your luggage at your hotel and explore the city on your own or relax on the beach. Salvador’s Renaissance architecture is reminiscent of colonial times when the city was the capital of the Brazilian Empire. Bahia was also the site of the first slave market in the Americas and its population reflects the unique mix of African, European and Native American heritage.
