Between Atlantic Forest and the ocean, in the land of cocoa in Southern Bahia, Itacaré is one of the most beautiful and complete tourist destinations of Brazil. Stunning beaches and waterfalls, hills covered with dense and preserved forest, large fields with coconut trees, rivers and mangroves consist of a unique set of landscapes in the Brazilian coastline, attracting thousands of visitors from all around the world.
Originally inhabited by indigenous village, the city was settled by Jesuits from the foundation of Church of São Miguel Arcanjo, giving the name to the settlement: São Miguel da Barra do Rio de Contas. Only in 1931, it was renamed to Itacaré (River of a Different Noise). Former shipping port in the golden age of cocoa, this paradise was discovered by the world after paving BA 001 (Ilhéus-Itacaré) in 1998, the first Ecological Road Park in Brazil.
Sun and beach, sport and adventure, ecotourism, rural tourism and rich culture and historical heritage, added to the diversity of colors, sounds, flavors and people, make Itacaré a complete destination listed by “The New York Times” newspaper, as one of the best places to visit in the world.
