Pelourinho

Salvador is a great place but it's really, really hot. I myself found it very hard to go out in the afternoon because of the heat but I found most shops to be closed around that time anyways.

It gets dark but 5:30ish (in December) and that's when things re-open and the city livens up.

I often walked around alone in the evenings (in the well lit areas where this is a police presence) and didn't once feel unsafe or in danger..

    I love your tips because they seem validated by your personal experience. I found myself reading them on both places I want to visit and places I have been to. Thanks
