During the 15 days I spent in the state of Bahia, I could feel the beating of its vibrant capital, Salvador de Bahia; explore the dense forests of the Diamond Plated; and stroll through the endless Atlantic beaches of Morro de São Paulo.
About my experience in this last destination - and after leaving you practical tips for traveling to Morro de São Paulo - I am writing today.
Praia do Encanto, Morro de São Paulo
Morro de Saõ Paulo: party place
When I got off the ship that took me to the Tinharé Island (where the town of Morro de São Paulo is located), I paid the ecological fee - 15 Reales - and climbed the steep slope that led to the town. A large banner was lying on it. It said:Forget Ibiza! Here we have Press“.
I smiled thinking that Ibiza's fame was really far and I asked a young Brazilian who passed by me if I knew what Pulsar was. Obviously, I did know. This time it was he who smiled and condescendingly replied that it was the most famous nightclub on the island and possibly the entire state of Bahia.
During the days I spent in Morro, I kept finding commercials from the disco trying to sell their tickets to the many visitors of the weekend. To put long teeth to the staff, they were equipped with laptops where they showed you images of the parties that were mounted.
Foam parties, costumes and similar things are organized in Pulsar. All this until dawn. Toca de Morcego and Teatro do Morro are the other two disco options in the area.
But the party in Morro begins much earlier, in the bars of the second and third beaches, those of the same town or the small street stalls that drink different drinks of alcohol and fruits.
Many of these venues - and some restaurants - also have live music to encourage staff.
If you travel to the island of Tinharé in search of party and lag, you will not be mistaken.
