Caraíva is in the Southern end of Bahia, along the mouth of a river of the same name.
It is a small and rustic village 70 kilometers from Porto Seguro.
It is strung along the bank of Caraiva river and the sea. Caraiva’s Southern borders meet the National Park of Monte Pascoal. The village maintained its bucolic charm, with streets paved with sand and no light poles.
It seems time has stopped here. Cars are not allowed in.
Caraíva is plenty of nature’s beauties offering you lovely surprises as you allow yourself to see more of it.
New flavors, aromas and special sensations.
