Porto Seguro is a city in Bahia state, Brazil, where the first Portuguese discoverers arrived almost 500 years ago. That's why it is called Porto Seguro, which means safe port.

So the city is an important tourist point in Brazil, which had, besides history and old churches from the colonization times, beautiful beaches and a really friendly population.

Even though Porto Seguro is a very old city, it is not a big urban one. It remains simple, but with a lot of things to do. There are bars, restaurants, stores with typical products and souvenirs, all with the special look that only Bahia can have!

Even the airport has this particular way; it definitely doesn't look like one. So everything is nice, and the people seem to be always celebrating something. There is fun in every corner.

Some beaches are full of bars and people, but some others, which are barely touched by civilization, are almost deserts and really difficult to reach by car; but if you don't mind walking, you can get to know them, and they are sure worth it. The nature is amazing.

It is a trip for all the family, but the young people are the larger part of the tourists. I went there 3 years ago with my two best friends, who are Flavia and Sandra. We could meet people and make friends, and we found every place full of great music, great food, and most important, joy! Whenever I get the chance, I will go back to Porto Seguro because it is an incredible place where you can have lots of fun and relax. Porto Seguro has the charm to make you forget everything else.
