Full description
After morning pick-up at your Salvador hotel, you will meet your guide and board your vehicle for the 135 mile (220 kilometer) trip to Mangue Seco. Mangue Seco is inaccessible by road, so crossing the Real River (which divides the Brazilian states of Sergipe and Bahia) is part of the adventure. On this 12-hour guided tour, you'll travel 135 miles (220 kilometers) from Bahia to explore beaches, sand dunes and a tranquil village.  A pearl nestled between the sea, rivers, dunes and palm trees; Mangue Seco is a tropical beauty that has been portrayed in soap operas and national films.  This tour allows you to experience one of the most beautiful landscapes of the north coast, known as the Green Line.  The idyllic beaches, with swirling sands orchestrated by the winds and the sea waves, create dunes of incomparable beauty. Its warm waters and its marine basins form natural medicinal spa centers. You will also have time for swimming, hiking, optional buggy rides (not included in the price, price to be negotiated on the day with the locals), or simply relax in a rustic tent and relish the local cuisine.  This family-friendly tour includes round-trip transportation from Salvador.

von den angegebenen 12 Stunden Trip verbrachten wir ca. 8 Stunden im Bus ab Salvador. Die Gruppengröße war, anders als angegeben, nicht 6 sondern 13 Personen, die natürlich alle an verschiedenen Orten eingesammelt und abgeladen werden mussten. Die Buggyfahrt vor Ort dauerte dann nur ca. 20 Minuten und glich mehr einer Kaffeefahrt sehr gemächlich über die Dünen von einem zum nächsten von 5 Fotostops. Den Rest der ca. 4 Stunden Aufenthalt auf der Insel konnte man frei verbringen. Allerdings war man auf der Seite, auf der wir die Fahrt beendeten Recht wenig mobil und konnte entweder im Meer baden oder in einer Art Strandrestaurant etwas essen. Jedoch wurde man hier von vielen Verkäufern belagert. Die Insel an sich ist aber mit ihren weiten Sanddünen und Palmen sehr schön.
