Cachoeira to Morro do Sao Paulo

We are traveling from Cachoeira to Morro do Sao Paulo. I would appreciate any advice on the best way to make this trip. Should we go to Salvador by bus and take a boat from there? Is there a closer/faster way to do it?

Thank you so much.

thank you so much for your reply Braziliansweden. I saw that you mentioned in another post that one can take speedboats from Valenca--do you think it's worth taking that route instead? Going from Cachoeira to Valenca and taking speedboat from there? Or is the fastest way going to be via Salvador?

Thanks.

You can do the route to Valencia but after a long ride from Cachoeira i wouldnt advise too.Unless you get very seasick then the option to Valencia is a must.But it will be around 5hours traveling including waiting to Valencia.I would go with the Catamaran from Salvador Terminal Maritimo that around two hours.

Thanks so much for your help.

Everyone in Cachoeira recommended that we pass through Valencia. We took a bus to Cruz das Almas and from there took another bus to Valencia, then a taxi to the port and a boat to Morro de SP. Total trip time was 4 hours.

That was a big round trip Abigail ...

The shortest way is to go over Maragojipe, then Nazare and then straight to Valença, 2 hours tops ...

You can do taxi-hopping from Cachoeira, better on the other side of the bridge (in São Felix) to Maragojipe, and then there to Nazaré, then continue with taxi or bus to Valença, taxis are cheap in that region and have a fixed price per trip/person, as I lived in Maragojipe for many years I know the region pretty well ;-)
