“It's a nice place to visit but avoid shopping there!”
Reviewed 2 December 2012

I went to this place in my first day so I didn't know very well how much things costed in Porto Seguro. I ended up buying a summer dress for 40 reais (US$20) and then found out that on the beach and also at Passarela do Álcool the same dress costed 20 reais (US$10). Food is also expensive there. An "acarajé" (typical dish from this region) costs 7 reais there but one can find a much cheaper acarajé downtown (and with the same quality). Also, there are some kids around who claim to be indians from a brazilian tribe called Pataxós. Everybody asked for pictures and they smiled and said "yes" but then they charged 1 real per indian kid that appeared in the photos. All in all it's a nice place to go for a couple hours in order to understand and learn a bit more about the brazilian history but don't shop over there!
