When Brazilians are far from home they dream of Bahia; its powder-fine beaches and reef-ringed islands; the waterfalls in the Diamond mountains of the arid sertão, and the cobbled streets and pastel-painted houses in Salvador. Tourists are now starting to discover a taste for spicy Bahian cuisine after watching displays of gymnastic capoeira or attempting the rhythms of axé-samba at the world's largest Mardi Gras carnival. Bradt's Bahia leads travellers to the Baroque splendour of the capital, Salvador and relaxes at Trancoso's tropical spas. Whether strolling along deserted beaches or wandering far from the beaten path to view exotic wildlife, visitors will find author Alex Robinson's meticulously researched Bahia an indispensable companion. It is the only English-language guidebook dedicated to this exciting, undiscovered destination.
