This Brazilian city and municipality is the capital of Bahia state and was also the first capital of colonial Brazil. The city is a regional metropolis with a population of almost three million, making it the most populated city in north-eastern Brazil and, the third most populated city in the whole country. The city was formerly called Bahia, even by the locals. It has also received nicknames such as Capital of Happiness. The old centre of Salvador was recognised as a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1985. The city represents a great example of 16th century urbanism with the government in the upper town and the commercial centre in the lower town. A large part of the city has preserved the traditional characteristics of its streets and coloured houses.
“‘Stunning locations and great to explore so much in such a short space of time.’
“'The tour was well planned and enabled us to see a lot of Brazil in a short time which is exactly what we wanted. Exoticca did an excellent job with the flights so we maximised our stay in Brazil and spent as little time as possible in airports awaiting connections. We also commend Exoticca on the choice of hotels - all were well positioned, offered clean, comfortable accommodation, a good breakfast with plenty of choice, and overall a first class service.'”
“‘The hotel in Rio was excellent and in an amazing position. The airport pickups were all waiting for us on arrival and the pickups and guides for the tours were all punctual, friendly and informative.’
