A couple of years ago I traveled in Brazil, one of the memorable visits was in San Salvador. An old city with a history, we decide to stay in the old parts of the city at an inn called Pousada do Boqueirão.
This is one of the best places I have ever stayed in, the charming Pousada overlooks the harbor of Salvador.
It somehow managed to reflect all of the positive, visual and romanticized imprints I had of Brazil. With a warm and friendly atmosphere, and a truly local presence.
The dark wooden floors, white walls decorated with handmade sculptures and colorful paintings. Maybe it´s the mix of Brazilian and African culture that makes it exotic but yet very at home feeling.
Breakfast with fresh mango, pineapple and yogurt topped with croissants and strong coffee at the veranda overlooking the early activity down the harbor made.
