Porto Seguro

Porto Seguro The one time pioneering settlement of Porto Seguro is l6km south of where Pedro Cabral and his men made the officially recognized first Portuguese landfall in Brazil in 1500. It's now a landfall for swarms of domestic and international tourists who come to party and take in some mesmerizing beaches.

Tourism is the primary industry, so this small city has hundreds of hotels and pousadas, mercifully limited to two stories high. Porto Seguro itself has no beaches, but the nearby coast has plenty, protected by reefs with clear, shallow, safe water. Carnaval here is not at all traditional, but it's one hell of a party.

Information
