We are looking for a great beach pousada near to Salvador city for a week in March or April. We would like to be within driving distance of SSA, rather than taking another flight from SSA to someplace like Porto Seguro and then a ferry to Trancoso, or travels like that. After a few long flights from the USA to SSA it would be great to avoid another flight. Ilheus has beautiful resorts but that seems to be a 3+ hour drive from SSA?
We are not interested in someplace all inclusive like the big resort in Praia do Forte. But we do want someplace with some luxury. Small pousadas are great and we have stayed at some in Alagoas.
If anyone has some suggestions that would be terrific. We would love a great beach, good food, maybe a small town nearby. Brigado.
