Our hostel is located in the historic city center at the square called Largo do Pelourinho. You can find there the City Museum also (large yellow building) and Jorge Amado´s House (big blue building) - a seat of the fundation, which is a tribute to this famous Brazilian writer. Facing these two buildings and looking left you will see a narrow yellow building - it is our inn, 'País Tropical'.
How to get there from the airport:
Please take the bus towards Praça de Sé and go out at the last stop. For further instructions see our city map. We can also offer you a shuttle service from the Salvador airport to the door of our guesthouse. The price of this service is R$ 90. If there are more than 4 people coming, the price is negotiable (via e-mail).
How to get there from the port, to which catamarans from Morro de São Paulo come:
After leaving the harbour, head towards the Mercado Modelo, a large building located on the opposite side of the port. Go to the Lacerda Elevator, which will take you to the Pelourinho. The elevator costs 15 cents. It will take to the Praça de Sé, for further instructions, please see our city map.
How to get there from the bus station (rodoviária):
You can either take the bus towards Praça de Sé (you go out at the last stop) in front of the shopping centre Iguatemi or go to the other exit and take the bus to Barroquinha (its the fatser option). You should go out at the stop called Tabuao. You can use a small minibuses instead of regular ones, they cost as much as a normal bus but are much faster. A taxi from the bus station to our hostel should cost around R$ 25, but before getting into a taxi, please negociate the price with a taxi driver first.
