We booked 5days in Salvador on our whirlwind trip of brazil for an ideal relaxing beach break. The Pousada was delightful, bohemian and bahian in style. We got a beachfront room with balcony. The room was spacious clean and perfect for a beach chill holiday ( reminded me of byron bay) lots of wood and african/bahian style decoration.A Safe, free wifi, beach towels, dining table, sink, shower ( solar powered - gets my vote!) plenty of wardrobe space and nothing was too much trouble for Igor and Rodregees. Like other people have said you could be completely left alone if you wished but we actually drilled Igor for as much information as possible about the area as we were a little nervous, but he gave us good advice. One day when it was raining Igor actually drove us into Salvador as we were worried about the bus ( we didnt need to be - we got the bus home no worries!) Another day we met Igor on the beach and we joined in a typical bahian bbq and watched the sunset!. The pousada is right on the beach so perfect distance to get to and from and 200m from the nearest shops and bank. Like anywhere in Brazil, Salvador is the 4th largest city and is very poor - that is obvious as you drive in and see all the tall walls and electric fences. That shouldnt put you off though, if you do what we did, just be safe sensible and dont put yourself at risk. We had a very enjoyable experience thanks to igor, and rodreges they were like an old married couple! breakfast was simple but perfectly brazilian, lots of meat, lovely bread, cakes, fresh fruit, and always freshly squeezed juices thanks to lucianna. On the day we left they even got up and did us a really early breakfast and booked our taxis. Thumbs up and thanks again from claire becky and whan ( jonathan) x
