Trancoso, Bahia


Recommended Stay 4 days/3 nights.

Bahia is a State in the north east of Brazil, that has an incredible blend of both indigenous Brazilian and African influence. In addition to being infamous for its happy people, Bahia makes the top of the list of Brazil’s best beaches and gastronomy scene. Our favorite stop is Trancoso- an idyllic village known for its colorful houses, turquoise waters, luxury service, and quintessential tropical culture. If St. Tropez was off-the-beaten-path, it would be called Trancoso. This Brazilian village is a slice of sophisticated paradise. Calm, charming and extremely well maintained, Trancoso was originally founded at the very beginning of the Portuguese colonization. This rustic and isolated location was then rediscovered by the hippies in the 1970s who started to bring in outside elements such as food, architecture and international residents. Today it is the destination for Brazil’s elite. Sitting in the middle of town, the Quadrado or town’s square, marks the center of life and is the backdrop of some of the country’s best restaurants, hotels, boutiques, indigenous shops and local bars. Only accentuating the charm of this village are its beautiful beaches and exuberant nature with the perfect climate all year round.
