Interaction with guests

When I am in Salvador, I orient guests to apartment and neighborhood. I like to offer a welcome drink and make some recommendations about the city. When not in Salvador, I try to be available to answer questions.

The neighborhood

Barra has everything for a perfect vacation and is probably the safest neighborhood in Salvador. Porto da Barra beach has calm water, a great social scene and a spectacular sunset. Stand-up paddle-boards are available for rent and there is a dive-shop. The Farol beach has rock pools at low tide near Farol, with waves suitable for surfing at other end. A newly redeveloped sea-front (Orla) provides a great 3km pedestrianized area for walking, running and socializing. There are public bikes available, free for the first 45 minutes. There are plenty of bars and restaurants within easy walking distance. Supermarkets and a big shopping center are within 5-10 minutes. The Pelourinho (historic center) and Rio Vermelho (night-life area) are 10-15 minutes by taxi or bus.

Getting around

Buses and taxis are available close to apartment. Airport is 28 km from apartment, so best to arrive by taxi.

Salvador, Brazil · Joined in October 2011

Originally from Dublin, now I split my time between California, Bahia and exploring the rest of the world. I enjoy outdoor activities like hiking, mountain biking, swimming, diving, skiing, also cultural interests especially live music.
I love my adopted home of Salvador and I am very happy to share recommendations for places and events, especially those off the usual tourist track.
I am open to apartment swaps in other locations, feel free to contact me.
