What you can expect

Journey to Mangue Seco, a tiny fisherman village of 200 inhabitants, famous for its natural beauty and deserted strips of sand. Cross a river in a canoe, ride over sand dunes in an off-road buggy and grab a siesta in a hammock to finish off your tour of one Bahia’s most scenic areas.

Begin your day with a 137-mile (220 km) trip to the state’s northern border. Since the village is not accessible by road, hop in a traditional boat and cruise through the mangrove forests of the Real River. Arrive on the other side and start preparing for an adventurous, adrenaline-packed 40-minute buggy ride (not included) on towering dunes flanking pristine beaches. Along the way, take breaks to snap photos of the beautiful landscapes.

Cool off in the refreshing waters of the South Atlantic or consider grabbing lunch at one of the local restaurants. Afterwards, relax in a comfortable hammock, swaying in the breeze while listening to the incomparable sound of crashing waves.

Your last stop is at Tieta’s House, the filming location of a popular Brazilian soap opera based on a novel written by Jorge Amado. After that, passengers return to the vehicle which will take them back to their hotels.
