Hi Doug,

You are a luck guy, Salvador is wonderful. Pelourinho is a good choice to see a old part of the city, after this i highly recommend see the sunset at Cafélier, it is a bar/restaurant with a nice view. To taste an amazing local food go to Restaurante Yemanjá. As Claud said, Praia do Forteis a good place, there you can visit Projeto Tamar, enjoy nice food, good beaches, and even do a little shopping. A Good beach in Salvador Bahia is Praia do Porto da Barra, but only in the week days if you want avoid the crowd. Look for local band shows, like Timbalada, Harmonia do Samba, Olodum and Carlinhos Brown. If you like fancy restaurants go to Bahia Marina, it's amazing. I don't know how long you'll stay, but if you have time there so many places in Bahiayou can go like Barra GrandeMorro de Sao PauloItacaréPorto Seguro and Trancoso, so difficult to choose. If you have more questions, feel free to ask. Enjoy your stay !

January is great in Bahia. If you wanna have fun at night, Rio Vermelho has a lot of bars and parties everywhere and all week in the summer. By day, the beaches are always a nice option. The best ones are off the city, at Guarajuba and Villas do Atlântico, but Buracão beach (also in Rio Vermelho) and Praia do Porto da Barra are also good choices. Hope you like it!

Hi Doug,
January is one of the best months to visit Salvador Bahia. Cultural programs such as: Pelourinho, Bonfim Church and Farol da Barra. It has also the beautiful beaches, especially the Praia do Porto da Barra and its pleasant promenade. But the main Salvador in January are your pre carnival celebrations, every day has some great party somewhere in town.

When in Pelourinho you should try and catch a concert with the local band Olodum.

They usually play once or twice a week there and they are really cool to watch live.

And try to take a boat trip out to some of the islands off the coast of Salvador Bahia thye leave from the harbour right behind Mercado Modelo which is also quite nice.

And if you want another day trip out of the city you could head up to Praia do Forte where you have a really nice beach with an interesting sea turtle project.
