Customer Travel Tip: Don't take expensive jewellery for the evenings as you will be a target for thiefs

Customer Travel Tip: Keep your eyes open and dont take anything you dont want to lose. Keep money in different pockets in case the worst does happen. Get a feeling for Salvador, get some confidence about where you are and then make your own judgements. Its a brilliant place with a lot of friendly people who get overlooked by the others who are looking to take what you have got but if you are sensible you should be fine.

Liked: Very relaxed and laid back feeling. Amazing architecture and endless beaches.

Disliked: The advice given by everyone about how dangerous it is made me paranoid at the start of my time there. I personally did not experience, or witness anything bad happen, although it did to friends of people I spoke to.
