Bahia really has something for everyone - powder-fine beaches and reef-ringed islands, waterfalls in the Diamond mountains of the arid sertão, and cobbled streets and pastel-painted houses in Salvador. Tourists are starting to discover a taste for spicy Bahian cuisine after watching displays of gymnastic capoeira or attempting the rhythms of axé-samba at the world's largest Mardi Gras carnival. Bradt's Bahia leads travellers to the Baroque splendour of the capital, Salvador, and relaxes at Trancoso's tropical spas. Whether strolling along deserted beaches or wandering far from the beaten path to view exotic wildlife, visitors will find author Alex Robinson's meticulously researched Bahia an indispensable companion. It is the only English-language guidebook dedicated to this exciting, undiscovered destination.
Alex Robinson is an award-winning travel writer and photographer and the author of five guidebooks on Brazilian destinations. He lived in Brazil for four years and speaks fluent Portuguese.
