Hello fellow travellers.

Could you please recommend a nice place to stay near these two cities? I was hoping to find places not located in the cities themselves, but in the surrounding area, possibly somwhere on the coast, where the nature is nice. Maybe a bungalow accomodation?

thanks

Hi Urika,

My boyfriend and I just stayed in the Galeria 13 Hostel in Salvador. It was a wonderful, clean and friendly place with a very delicious menu (even vegetarian food). You can find the info for them on Hostelworld.com. It is in the heart of the historic district though - not at all natural like the bungalow accommodations you mentioned, but quite a unique cultural experience. I think it's great area to see for at least a couple days at least. Make sure you go to the folkloric dance show nearby. It was cheap and phenomenal! Have fun!!
