The paradise of Bahia
Morro de São Paulo is a village north of the island of Tinharé.
tropical, relaxed, colorful, festive, Morro is popular with Brazilians and foreign tourists for its beaches. 2 hours from Salvador de Bahia by ferry, this destination is healthy after staying a few days in the beautiful but oppressive colonial city Salvador de Bahia.
Arriving on the pontoon jetty, taxis are « wheelbarrows » where « drivers » are deposited your luggage and accompany you to your hotel or pousada. No car through the village and for good reason: the roads do not exist. At the beach, you will see the local moving horse.
There have to climb to reach the village where flower shops and restaurants, pousadas and hotels that are in harmony with the island. I really enjoyed the beaches (without stress, you can leave your business on the beach and swim unlike Rio) is full of fruit and acai (super antioxidant), listen to the percussion cross batucadas the village (I was in full carnival time) and partied the night your feet in the sand (Segunda Praia). No visit to the area, it was particularly refreshed, after 12 days of grueling mop in big cities, it was beneficial.
Despite the many tourists that populate the island, Morro remains an unspoilt place, life is sweet and enjoyable. Probably because cars are banned … it changes life 🙂
