The North East Brazil region
Bahia is the major state of the tropical north east of Brazil. It brings a mixture of stunning coastline, a rich culture and some of Brazil's most important historical monuments. The capital, Salvador, is one of Brazil's oldest cities and as the colonial capital for many years, it has impressive old historical quarters, including the 'Pelourinho' with its colonial townhouses (now housing excellent shops and restaurants) and impressive Baroque churches.
Salvador is also home to a vibrant music scene and hosts one of Brazil's best Carnivals - still retaining a truly street party atmosphere that attracts people from all over the world. There are regular and inexpensive coach services between Praia do Forte and Salvador or tours/taxis can also be arranged locally. From Salvador, there are also boat trips to nearby islands and other attractions.
Bahia is also home of some major national parks, including the astonishing the Marine National Park of Abrolhos and the Chapada Diamantina National Park, an impressive complex of canyons, caves, waterfalls and underground lakes.
If the idea is to use Praia do Forte to visit other major Brazilian tourist destinations, Salvador International Airport receives direct flights from North America and Europe. It is also a connecting hub for all major domestic airlines linking the North of the country (the Amazon, other coastal states) with the South (Rio de Janeiro, Sao Paulo, Iguazu Falls, Brasilia, etc.).
Weather in Bahia is usually warm throughout the year, usually around 25-30C/75-80F
