Brazil’s third-largest city, Salvador da Bahia is one of South America’s party capitals and a hotbed of activity after dark. From capoeira demonstrations to samba sessions and live music performances, here are a few ways to experience Salvador’s infectious energy and Afro-Brazilian vibe. 

Dinner Experiences
One of the best ways to tap into Salvador’s Afro-Brazilian heritage is by eating. Dine on Bahian specialties and sip caipirinhas (a Brazilian cocktail made from cachaça, sugar, and lime). Many dinner experiences include folk shows that spotlight local culture. Observe folkloric plays, traditional South American dances such as samba de roda, and demonstrations of capoeira, a skillful martial art developed by African slaves in Brazil in the early 16th century.

Night Sightseeing
Though lively by day, the city of Salvador really comes into its own at night. Bongo beats boom around the UNESCO-listed old town of Pelourinho, where musicians perform in the open air and dancers shimmy at local squares. The liveliest time to visit is on Tuesday night, during the Terça da Benção (Blessed Tuesday), when local parishioners traditionally give out bread to the poor. After the evening mass, a carnivalesque street party takes place, with live music courtesy of the Olodum bloco (street band). 

For those who don’t want to brave the streets alone, night sightseeing tours of Pelourinho are available, some of which include music and cultural shows. While Pelourinho is the hub of after-dark fun, you’ll also find great places for live music in Rio Vermelho and Porto de Barra.

On this tour, you will get a different view of the Salvador by visiting its Lower City and the peninsula of Itapagipe. It's completely surrounded by the calm waters of the bay, an oasis of peace at only 8 km from the busy harbor area and my favorite part of the city where I lived for more than 20 years. I recommend a visit to the biggest and swarming open market of the city, called São Joaquim to dive into the daily live and habits of the locals and discover some secrets of the Candomblé, the African religion. We visit neighborhoods like Ribeira, with fantastic views on the Bay of All Saints and its small marinas and the possibility to taste the best ice cream of the city! Then the famous church of Nosso Senhor do Bonfim, a unique place for pilgrimage where you can still feel the syncretism between Catholicism and Candomblé. Finally the Fort of Monte Serrat and Ponta de Humaitá, the most romantic spot in Salvador with the possibility to see one of the most wonderful sunsets of Brazil!

On this tour, you will know the most important places in the old part of Salvador. As it has been the first capital of Brazil this is also a historical tour. We visit the neighborhood of Barra, the place where the Portuguese colony started and where I discovered Salvador some decades ago... but I had more eye for the beaches at that time! We visit the iconic lighthouse to have a splendid view of the bay and ocean. We take the Avenue of the 7th of September to get to the Pelourinho, my favorite place in Salvador. It's also called the Historical Center, a World Heritage Site by the UNESCO, and it's a must for the visitors. A complete old neighborhood, upon a cliff inside the bay, full of churches and magnificent colorful mansions in typical Portuguese colonial style. We visit this place walking through the lively squares and cobblestone streets experiencing the local atmosphere and people that will not let you impassive.
