Nowhere are the traditions of Brazil's African-background community as strong as in Salvador, the colorful, historical capital of Bahia state.
Explore Salvador's surroundings by going to Praia do Forte (Forte Beach, Piscinas Naturais, &more), Guarajuba Beach (in Guarajuba) and Sea and Captaincy Museum (in Ilheus). There's lots more to do: take a stroll through Pelourinho, browse the eclectic array of goods at Mercado Modelo, enjoy the sand and surf at Praia do Porto da Barra, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Igreja de Nosso Senhor do Bonfim.

A gateway to the world-renowned Iguacu Falls, which spectacularly divide Brazil and Argentina, the modern, high-rise city of Foz do Iguacu can't help but play second fiddle to the natural wonder in its vicinity.
