Read our Frequently Asked Questions

Most people go to Salvador for the beautiful palm fringed beaches that line the coast but others decide to hire a car to discover more of the history of the area. A good starting point is the Museu Afro-Brasileiro, where you’ll learn about the slave trade that supplied workers for the plantations.

You can then join the pilgrims to the most popular site in Brazil, the Igreja do Nosso Senhor do Bonfim where, for a few pesos, children will tie a ribbon around your arm. You make a wish and if the ribbon wears away naturally, it will come true.
