will probaby be staying near/on barra beach in october and wanted a rough price for a cab to the old town. thanks!
A few years back I paid 35 reias (before tip). There's also frequent and efficient bus service from Barra to the old city. For that matter, it's not an unpleasant walk -- something I also did a couple of times.
I do no.. not live in Brazil or Salvador.
