Salvador is considered by many to be the most gay-friendly city in Brazil, but even Brazilians living here do not consider it a safe place to travel. If you visit Salvador de Bahia in the northeast, you are not necessarily the biggest visitor to Brazil, but rather you are drawn to Rio, Sao Paulo and the Amazon region. Here, the city of Salvador, which has a population of about 2.5 million, is one of the largest and most diverse cities in Brazil.
The closest airport to Salvador is Bebe, which is the second largest airport in Brazil after Rio de Janeiro and the third largest in the world.

To help you make the most of your time in this tropical paradise, we have lifted the curtain on the city of Salvador a little.
Salvador is one of the places in Brazil that you should definitely visit, and not only because of the beaches and beaches. It is the third most populous city in the country after Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo (since 1763, when it was given the title) and one of the oldest cities in America. Given history of feeling committed to the past and ready to carry innovation into the future, it is no wonder that black ex-pals have settled in Salvador, Brazil.
It is probably a great place to learn about Bahia's history and to get a glimpse of the wonderful diversity that the state of Bahia has added to the great country of Brazil. Like Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo, Salvador has great beaches, good restaurants and a great nightlife (I recommend Itacare and the Cocoa Coast). The nightlife is fantastic and it is considered one of, if not the centre of music and dance in Brazil (there are also some great bars and restaurants).
Perhaps it is also because of the unique Afro-Brazilian culture of Salvador, which is permeated in so many different ways and feels so powerfully unique. Salvador also has some of the most beautiful beaches in Brazil, such as Itacare and the Cocoa Coast, as well as some great restaurants and bars.
All these factors together make Salvador one of the most culturally diverse cities in the world, and the north - east of Brazil - and Salvador in particular - are able to match any other place in Africa in terms of cultural diversity. Between 1549 and 1763 Salvador da Bahia was the first capital of Brazil to experience the fusion of European, African and Indian cultures. Modern Salvador is a city of over two million inhabitants, but more than half of them are of Afro-Brazilian descent, with a population of about 1.5 million.
Salvador de Bahia was founded in 1549 on a small peninsula between the bay of Todos Santos and the Atlantic Ocean on the northeast coast of Brazil and became until 1763 Portugal's first capital of America. It is considered the soul of the country and birthplace of Brazilian culture. Salvador is known for its cultural diversity as one of the most important cities in the world. The history of Salvador and its relations with the Portuguese Empire date back to the 16th century, but from 1649 to 1762 it was the capital of Brazil.
Bahia became one of the most important cities in the world for the development of Afro-Brazilian culture. Salvador is located on the Bahian coast, with sunny beaches, refreshing blue sea and beautiful weather. Salvador was an important place of the slave trade and is now a thriving center for Afros and Brazilian life.
This is a unique place in the world and is flourishing on literally every street corner of the city. There is nowhere else like Salvador when you visit Brazil to eat, especially when you travel for the food.
The food in Salvador is divine, one of the best I have tasted in Brazil, and although Xinxim Galinha won't make it into my list of the top five things, I eat it at least once or twice a day here in Brazil. With its vibrant Afro-Brazilian culture, good food and great atmosphere, this is a place that will certainly enrich your entire Brazilian experience. This is the place I should visit on your next trip to Brazil and which I will visit again and again on my next visit to the country.
