<BR>I would suggest Praia do Forte. I have had a lot of experience with this resort over the years and everyone likes it a lot. They also have an ecological sea turtle program as well as the scuba diving, horse back riding, wind surfing etc. It is also close enough to Salvador to take day trips into town to explore the historic areas. While in the area, I also suggest a day trip to the little town of Cachoeira. There is a lot of history there, including a the "Irmadade de Boa Morte" - A Museum and Church run by a group of African-Brazilian women who have kept up the Religious customs of Africa. They dress in the colorful folcloric costumes and perform the traditional music and dances. At certain times during the year they have wonderful festivals and celebrations.<BR>Please feel free to contact me if you would like more info.<BR>Jill

I would go to an area called 'pea body'. It's very unknown, but you micht want to ask the locals about it.

Praia do Forte is THE place to stay.Lot of activities,very good food,etc....I was there in november and I surely will return during my next trip in Brazil.I was advised by different sources to avoid clubmed of Itaparica.If you like clubmed ,Ria das Pedras near Angra is much more better
