If Arraial d’Ajuda is Porto Seguro’s charming neighbour, Trancoso is the classy one. At a safe distance from that whirlwind of activity that is Porto Seguro, Trancoso is an oasis of tranquillity where the well-off from the south of Brazil seek refuge. Worry not, you don’t need wealth to enjoy the beauty of Trancoso and its beaches.
WE LIKE THE MOST: the tranquillity of the place, the beauty of its beaches, the Quadrado (main square)
WE LIKE THE LEAST: expensive prices, the elitist character of Trancoso
HOW TO GET THERE: from Arraial d’Ajuda there is an asphalt road that goes to Trancoso. You can get there driving a rented car or using the regular bus (less than R$10).
CAREFUL WITH: unfriendly prices, the high season
FAVOURITE SPOTS: the Coqueiros beach, the Quadrado
PIECE OF ADVICE:
- if you have the chance to stay and sleep in Trancoso, you will enjoy the little village in a different way: you will have the entire place for yourself; most tourists arrive in the morning and return to Arraial or Porto Seguro at the end of the day
