CARNAVAL in SALVADOR 2014

Bahiamar Hotel
Carnival in Salvador basically has two parts: the parade of trio elétricos (more about them in a moment), and the barracas.
A trio elétrico is a done-up semitrailer, loaded with thousands of watts of sound equipment and with a band playing on top. They parade very slowly along one of two circuits; one closer to the city center, running from Campo Grande (literally "Big Field", Salvador's central park) to Praça Castro Alves (named for Antônio Frederico de Castro Alves, the Bahian poet who, among other things, wielded his mighty pen against the injustices of slavery and political oppression) and the other running from Barra to Ondina. They are called "trios" because the first one was an old car ('29 Ford) with a driver and two musicians (Dodô and Osmar) in the back (the car can be seen in the museum at the Lagoa da Abaeté in Itapoan; it debuted in 1950). Next Carnaval (as it's spelled in Portuguese) will be in the middle of February. Unofficially (and actually) it runs to the morning of Ash Wednesday, and ends on Sunday. The arrastão (roundup) of Timbalada starts Wednesday morning at the Farol da Barra and winds its way along Avenida Oceanica to Ondina.

This package includes:
5 nights at Bahiamar Hotel in a single or duble standard rooms with brazilian breakfast buffet. Contact one of our travel consultant and ask for other hotel's options and specials air fares. THE PRICE IS PER PERSON.

Ouro Minas Palace Hotel
History, Architecture, Diamonds and Gold are some of the atractions for the travellers that visit Minas Gerais.

Nestled in the Serra do Espinhaço are the historic colonial cities which grew up with the great gold boom. Their baroque churches and sacred art represent over half of Brazil's national monuments. The state of Minas Gerais is as large as France, part of a vast plateau that crosses Brazil's interior. Rising along the state's southern border with Rio and São Paulo is the Serra da Mantiqueira, with some of Brazil's highest peaks. These mountains stalled the development of Minas Gerais until the gold boom at the beginning of the 18th century. Running south to north, from São João del Rei through Ouro Preto and past Diamantina, is the Serra do Espinhaço, Brazil's oldest geological formation. This range separates Minas' two principal river systems: the great São Francisco to the west and the Rio Doce to the east.
