I'm a Manchester United fan and I'm already going to miss the first leg of the Inter V Man Utd match because I'll be in Cuiaba doing a Pantanal tour and I have not seen european football matches (Premier League, La Liga, Serie A) anywhere in Sao Paulo or Parity so far...I doubt Rio will be much better.
What about Salvador? Will they show these EXTREMELY important matches for football fans ANYWHERE?
Thanks guys :)
wondering if anyone has recently flown to Recife from Salvador and knows what the prices are round trip, am having problems with Tams´ site. Also, same question for the bus and how long is it to Olinda via Recife and can it be done overnight? Or are there any other suggestions for places to visit nearby Salvador for two - three days that are small and friendly for a single female traveller. Thanks
Hi everyone, I really want to go to Bahia for carnival but I don't really have any extra funds available at the moment. However what I am able to do is get to Bahia. I have friends who work at United air and have gotten me a few free random flights in the past. They told me that getting me to Brazil for Carnival should be no problem. My question is... Is it possible for me to go to Bahia with little to no money?? For you natives or permanent residents living there, do you think it's a good idea? What I have heard so far is "if you can just get there you're set, party it up" Well I have roundtrip tickets so... Should I do it? Oh and btw, I'm 22 male from Hawaii and I'm looking to party HARD if its possible!
Some things I've been pondering are: A. WOOFING (maybe not a good idea since it's so short notice B. hospitality club/couchsurfing (I'm considering this but they require your passport number... Identity theft suddenly pops in my mind so I don't know about either of those..) What are your thoughts...?
Someone reccommended me to spend couple of night in Morro de Sao Paolo (instead of afull week in Salvador de Bahia.
First, I looked at the map and the island is very close to Sao Paolo, but the only way to get there (plane or boat) is from Salvador. Am I right?
Then, I wander if someone can share experience on this place, like what to do (besides continous parties on the 2nd beach..), good accommodation (50-75 USD per rroom per night), how to move from place to place (no cars there..) etc.
We will be in Salvador da Bahia at the beginning of March. What will be the best place to stay in or around Salvador? We want a nice but not too expensive place (no dorms..), close to the beaches. I heard about Barra district and also about the island of Itaparica, but not much else.
we are planning to go to Salvador for Carnival. Just wondering any tip about things to do and avoid. We paln to be there from Feb 17 to Feb feb 25. Anyone coming, may be we could meet-up for a drink? We have rented an apartment in Barra and looking forward to great time.
Thank for any tips...

We are four 20-year old guys from Denmark visiting salvador for carnaval. We are interested in buying acces to some bloco trio and camarotes in the barra-area. Could anybody come with some suggestions to which we should choose?
We are not that into african music. Security and beautiful girls is first priority :-).
We will be in Salvador da Bahia for only one day. What would a person who knows Salvador well suggest ? Should we simply walk around, should we hire a private tour guide, are there full city tours available, are ther HOHO (hop on,hop off) busses?
What are absolute must sees? The churches? The museums, etc.? What are resonable prices for a guide? Are there any reputable ones and how to find them?
TIA for the suggestions. We are interested in history and culture more than in shopping.
