A small eco village north of Salvador. Local bus, about an hour, up the road from Praia de Forte (Tamar turtle project) with a river running alongside the beach, which has a few barracas for cheap food and drinks. A wonderful place.
Morro de Sao Paolo is good too! Stayed in a great place on second beach. Fourth beach is the best, it's got a great Tahitian-style cafe there.
A hostel-oasis bit of accommodation on the tropical island of Itaparica, near Salvador in the Bahia region of Brazil. It used to be run by two lovely guys, one who worked as a surgeon and the other a teacher. Both welcoming and thoughtful.
It's a beautifully vivid and tranquil place, bright colours, lots of areas to choose from to read, converse,write, sleep, swim.
Has native landscaping, and electricity run via solar energy. The most beautiful and luminous place I've stayed in. It used to be hard to track down, phoning ahead probably best.
