Salvador holidays offer a delectable dose of Afro-Brazilian culture. Much more than just a gateway to the region’s beautiful beaches, this ocean-facing Bahian capital is a destination in itself. During your time here, wind your way through its rainbow-hued colonial old town, sample mouth-wateringly good food from its sizzling seafood stalls and enjoy the hypnotic sound of percussion spilling out onto the cobbled streets. During February, the city’s festivities rival that of Rio’s Carnival’s, although you can see this joie de vivre all year round as evening rolls in and the squares comes alive. Step
out into the balmy air to watch dancers perform capoeira at dusk and sample acaraje (shrimp fritters) freshly fried from the street stalls as well as some of the best moqueca (the region’s signature seafood stew) around.
