Full description
Located 130 miles (220 kilometers) from Salvador in the north of Bahia, Manque Seco sits on the edge of a peninsula between the sea and river among lush mangroves.

There are no roads leading to the resort, making it an ideal destination for a relaxed day of adventure. As you approach Mangue Seco, you will transfer from your coach to cross the Real River on a boat.

On the other side, take a dune buggy for an optional, 40-minute ride through the towering white sand dunes. Stop along the way for photos and end your crazy ride at one of the top rated beaches in Bahia.

Jump into the crystal clear waters to clean off the dust. Let the current gently wash over you.

Your next stop is a beach restaurant where you will have time for a no-host lunch. Showers and hammocks are available so you can unwind with a book, or simply laze in the sun.

You will then head into the tiny village to visit Tieta's House, named after a famous character from a Jorge Amado novel. Head back south to Salvador.
