Bahia, Brazil – Top places to travel in 2020

Written by: Travel Inn

Brazil has had a momentous year when it comes to travel. The country has dropped its visa requirements for U.S. citizens. New flight routes have added better connections to Brazilian cities like São Paulo and Salvador from hubs throughout North and South America. Salvador is the main gateway into the northeast state of Bahia—a region with a rich Afro-Brazilian heritage and a coastline that rivals Rio’s. The capital city has recently seen a slew of notable hotel openings. Hotel Fasano Salvador sits in the headquarters of a former newspaper and overlooks the Bay of All Saints, and the nearby Art Deco Fera Palace, prior to reopening last year, once hosted the likes of Carmen Miranda and Pablo Neruda. The downtown Pelourinho district, where the Fera is, was the site of the first slave market in the Americas in 1558; today it is recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and has just emerged from a restoration of its cobblestone streets and colonial façades. And some things never change: West African dishes, beating music, candomblé religion, and rich history make the state as magnetic as ever. Bahia’s momentum will only continue in 2020. United Airlines is pursuing a partnership with Brazil’s Azul airlines, and American Airlines is adding new direct flights from Miami to São Paulo, amid talks of a partnership with Brazilian airline Gol. The Museum of Music in Salvador, which catalogs the diverse landscape of Brazilian music, will undergo a renovation and reopen in a historic bayside building before the end of 2020. For those who were stirred by images of Brazil’s Amazon rain forest fires, daily flights via Fortaleza and Brasilia make it possible to tack on a trip to the jungle as well. Tap a specialist like Matuete to organize fishing with a local tribe or visits to wildlife sanctuaries for a trip that will convert any traveler into a conservationist. —Megan Spurrell
