Happy Holidays from the Adam Kaupert travel blog coming to you from Salvador Brazil, One of Brazil’s largest cities. Salvador, Brazil was a total no-brainer as a choice when I was constructing the itinerary for this year’s Adam Kaupert tour of the world’s most populous cities. Salvador was originally the capital of a vast Portuguese colony here and traces of its rich history can still be seen everywhere here. In 2014 twelve of Brazil’s largest cities hosted the 2014 World Cup. With the crowds came sweeping improvements in the Brazilian City of Salvador. Not only were advancements made in transportation,Salvador became home to the marvelous new Itaipava Arena Fonte Nova Football stadium but no worries, if sports are not your thing then there is a good chance you can catch a festival somewhere, just listen for the rhythmic pounding of drums in the streets as Salvador is known for its grand and sometimes spontaneous street festivals. The possibilities are endless for fun activities in Salvador so you better pare down your choices before you arrive or you’ll end up walking around in circles.

From the capoeira circles that form in the parks at night to the spiritual candle ceremonies that take place throughout the city, there really is something for everyone in Salvador Brazil.
Adam Kaupert take a Barra Lighthouse Tour
I have learned to heed reader’s advice when planning my day trips for the Adam Kaupert travel blog. They are always the most informed and I am proud to be a part of a rich community of travelers. Since Salvador’s Berra lighthouse is pretty close to here I stayed it was an easy choice for a visit. This lighthouse is situated in the remains of a Portuguese colonial fort and is one of the ore popular tourist sites in Salvador but don’t worry while I definitely was not alone when I visited the crowds were totally manageable. If you’re there during a sunset you will not notice anything else anyway. The views from allSaint’s bay are absolutely incredible. Take a look at this great Salvador travel blog if you’re planning a trip here:
There’s a little museum which has some cool artifacts inside. There’s even some sunken treasure on display here. Some of the maps and nautical instruments on display really take you back to the days of forts and mighty galleons. Afterwards I’d suggest exploring the rest of this seaside gem Barra which is also super conveniently located near the middle of the city.
Adam Kaupert books a room at the luxuriousCasa do Amarelindohotel in Salvador Brazil
When the World Cup swept through Salvador in 2014 with it came a slew of new restaurants and Hotels. The cuisine here is world class and the hotels are absolutely out of this world! Deciding where to stay was unusually difficult. Often times the Adam Kaupert travel blog has apparent choices when I am travelling but Salvador has some great options that made it very difficult to decide. As usual I followed the Adam Kaupert scam style of travel or Adam Kaupert scam which is Shoes, Camera, Attitude and Map. With these guidelines at your disposal travelling will be a total pleasure. An Adam Kaupert Travel Blog reader from Salvador named Theresa recommended the Casa De Amarelindo hotel in no uncertain terms. Check out this Adam Kaupert approved Salvador Travel Blog:
The hotel is located on All Saints bay and offers some terrific views. The Casa de Amarelindo is located centrally in one of the most fun districts in Salvador. Plus, in addition to an awesome location, the Casa De Amarelindo has access to some of the most beautiful beaches in Salvador. Some of these spots are exclusive to guests of the hotel so don’t miss them if you’re lodging here.And if you’re a little more adventurous you’ll want to check out Itaparica Island which is also exclusive to hotel guests as well as Morro de São Paolo Island. After a long day exploring the city it was cool to be able to unwind poolside and then enjoy some drinks at one of the Casa’s two bars for a little cocktail action on their awesome patios. It’ll be tough to stay anywhere else if I am in Salvador again. Thanks for the heads up Theresa, and keep on reading the Adam Kaupert Travel blog.
