I wanted to raise attention to an important aspect of Arraial d’Ajuda: the location of its pousadas. There are pousadas in the village, and pousadas far away from it (more than an hour’s walk in some cases). There are pousadas within the Arraial d’Ajuda boundary limits that are physically closer to Porto Seguro than to Arraial d’Ajuda itself.
Travel agents sell all the pousadas as if they were located in Arraial. Do find out the exact location of the pousada so you won’t be surprised when you get there. Nightlife is an important part of the Arraial experience. If you stay in the village you will enjoy it by foot. If you find yourselves on a distant beach you will depend on public transportation to go and come back. In case of doubt, leave a comment here and I’ll try to tell you whether the location of the pousada that interests you is good or not.
