... hard to come by. Salvador Airport Transfer has a website that allows prebooking prior to arrival in Salvador, and claims to have English speaking staff, should you need to give them a call.By carRenting a basic car with air conditioning (100+ kilometers or KM free) costs R$ 110-140 per day, plus fuel.

about how their nights turn out.
It was a long day of Salvador touring for us so we decided to make it an early night. But first, I stopped in at a friendly Hostel Pub that I found the night before, I only stayed for s beer and was sound asleep in my bunk by 10 or so.
I am not sure how long I had slept but was woken up later ...
