Arraial d’Ajuda – Itacare

Back on the road, we continue our travels north up the coast. It’s a five and a half hour drive to Itacare, but the gorgeous scenery will make the journey more of a pleasure than a chore. Things get even sweeter with a visit to the Ilheus chocolate factory en-route, before arriving to the stunning beach town of Itacare in time for sunset and drinks on the beach!

Much-loved by Brazilians but only now emerging on the international tourism scene, Itacare has been astonishingly well-blessed by nature.

Coconut-fringed beaches, tropical rainforest, waterfalls, adventure sports and some of the best surfing and capoeira in the world are just some of the attractions, and you won’t be disappointed in the night-life either… Itacare moves to the sound of reggae and there are parties with live music almost every night of the week.

INCLUDED: – Visit to chocolate factory on-route
