Salvador da Bahia
PRAIA DO FORTE AND TAMAR PROJECT
During this tour, we will have the opportunity, to experience one of the most beautiful tropical natural beauties of Brazil. We will be driven up to the little village of "Praia do Forte" passing by the so-called "Coconut Road", considered as being Brazil's first ecological highway. Moreover, we will drive past Arembepe, Brazil's first hippie village, visited in the 60s by Janis Joplin and Mick Jaegger. We will continue the trip by bus through different protected areas of the Northern Coast, until Praia do Forte, where we will have the chance to stroll around the narrow streets of this old fishermen's village. There will be also the opportunity to go for shopping in one of the many handcrafts shops of the place. The visit to the Tamar-Project, devoted to the protection of sea turtles, will be very interesting. It is a foundation responsible for the preservation, protection and study of the five different species of sea turtles, existing on the Brazilian coast, giving the visitor a good example of the fight against the extinction of this splendid animal. We will then continue further to Guarajuba beach, where you can enjoy the heavenly beauty of the crystal-clear water and go for a pleasant swim. Finally, we will return back to the ship.
