Lived in Salvador for 18 years. I can confirm the best getaways are one or two hours from the city. Praia do Forte, Morro de São Paulo, Barra Grande, Vale do Capão... If you are either backpacking or looking for a luxury stay, the paradise beaches and sheer beauty of the nature there will surprise you. Most of the population don’t have much, but they manage to be happier than first world countries I’ve been to.

Salvador is the capital of the state of Bahia, Brazil and is commonly called Salvador de Bahia. Since it was the center of the slave trade it is the the Afro center of Brazil. It has great architecture and produces the world's largest carnival.

This is a beautiful city from a rustic point of view. When you enter the city as I did from the port, you will see a round building that is now used for merchants. This was the building used to store slaves before they were sold right out in front of this buiilding
