From Salvador to Morro de Sao Paulo out 18


In this second post I will start explaining how to get from Salvador’s Airport to Morro de Sao Paulo.
            From the Airport of Salvador to the port of Salvador (called Terminal Marítimo do Mercado Modelo) there are approximately 20km and from the these port to the port of Morro de Sao Paulo there are exactly 60km.  It seems easy and close… but do not let your big city ideas of distances give you the wrong idea of time. It could take over 5 to 6 hours depending on the transportation method you will use.

            There are 3 main transportation ways to go from Salvador to Morro de Sao Paulo and some variables in some of them. These 3 ways are complex enough to deserve their own post. I will make an introduction of this 3 ways and give you some tips to let you choose, but I will explain in details (in future posts) each one of them.

             1) Without not doubt there is not better way to come from Salvador to Morro de Sao Paulo that by Air Taxi. It takes around 25 minutes to arrive from the Airport in Salvador (the same you arrive from your country) to a small landing field in Morro de Sao Paulo. But, and there is always a but, it is quite expensive. To this date the price is R$ 175 Brazilian reals each way, what gives at today’s exchange rate 83 dollars. Huau!!, just that?. Actually, with the last devaluation caused by the world economy crash it is not that expensive for foreigns now. It was 110 dollars 2 weeks ago. You see, there is always one good think even in the worst situation.

           The fact the planes just take 25 minutes to arrive in Morro de Sao Paulo is not the best advantage of the air taxi. The best advantage is that the small airplane of the Air taxi companies leaves from the same airport you arrive. You do not have to take a taxi or bus to leave the airport. That makes a BIG positive difference.

            So, let me explain again in a shorter way: TAKING THE AIR TAXI is the BEST way to come from Salvador’s airport to Morro de Sao Paulo. And remember that the last Air Taxi leaves from Salvador 3:30 pm. Book your international flight to arrive in Salvador with time enough to take the Air Taxi. And reserve the Air taxi before arriving in Salvador.

             2) Let’s now introduce the famous Catamaran. This is the second best way to come from Salvador to Morro the Sao Paulo. And it wouldn’t be that bad if it is not for the fact you have to go first from the Airport to the Port to take it. The catamarans, or any of the fast boats, take between 2 and 3 hours to make the 60 kilometers there are between the port of Salvador where it leaves (Terminal Marítimo do Mercado Modelo) to the port of Morro de Sao Paulo. It costs R$ 65 Brazilian reals (equal, when I wrote this post, to 31 US dollars). You have around 3 schedule times in low season and 5 in high season. The last catamaran to leave from Salvador to Morro de Sao Paulo depart at 2pm. It can be nice experience if the ocean condition helps, but when the ocean is not in a mud you will regret taking the catamaran. If you are not use to navigate in open waters you are exposed to ocean sickness (it is almost a rule).

             3) The last way to go from Salvador to Morro de Sao Paulo is going from Salvador to a City called Valença, and from there take a fast boat to Morro de Sao Paulo. To be franc, take this as an option just if you really care about savings of the order 15 dollars. Otherwise take the Catamaran or the Air Taxi.

Now, let’s suppose you insist on taking this way: first, ask the taxi driver (or take a bus) to go to the port of the Ferry Boat (called Terminal Maritimo de Sao Joaquim). It is not the same port as the catamaran. Once there, take the Ferry to Bom Despacho, in Itaparica Island (do not worry, this is the only destination). Once in Bom Despacho take a bus till Valença, and once in Valenca take a fast boat to Morro de Sao Paulo. From the Salvador’s port till Morro will take around 4 hours and cost 30 reals ( equal to 15 dollars when I wrote this post). But as I say, take this as last option because it is full of complications: long waiting time between transport changes, long walks that with your bag could be annoying, not as secure as the other 2 options, etc.

            In the future I will explain more detailed each one of these options and the variables of some of them.
