Porto Seguro Travel Guide

Porto Seguro

Not too long ago, Porto Seguro (Safe Harbor) was a serene fishing village. Now it’s one of the prime tourist destinations in the country for Brazilians, and the access point for travelers eager to visit the deserted beaches and sophisticated beach towns that lie along the coast.
