Cachoeira Tours and Activities

star-5
6 Reviews

A small colonial town set on the banks of the Paraguaçu river, Cachoeira is both the capital of Reconcavo and an important vestige of Brazil’s colonial past, and makes a popular day trip from nearby Salvador. Cachoeira’s colorful colonial buildings remain its most charming asset and the central Praça da Aclamação square is the obvious starting point for a walking tour, home to striking landmarks like the 17th-century City Hall and the baroque-style Igreja Matriz Nossa Senhora do Rosário church.

Additional highlights of a visit to Cachoeira include taking a boat trip along the Rio Paraguaçu; crossing the bridge to neighboring São Félix where it’s possible to tour the Dannamann Cigar Factory, one of Brazil’s most popular tobacco brands; and discovering the region’s rich Afro-Brazilian heritage by watching a live candomblé show.

Recôncavo and Cachoeira - the African inland

Recôncavo and Cachoeira - the African inland

On this tour you will discover the unique region around the Bay of All Saints, the Recôncavo. This is the most African region of Brazil that received the first sugar cane plantations and the first slaves, imported from black Africa. This is a "back to the roots" tour that will give you an unforgettable experience of expatriation. Leaving Salvador, we pass the poor suburbs of Salvador and, later, a succession of fields for agriculture and grasslands. A whirling road passing by bamboo plantations takes us first to the city of Santo Amaro where we visit the amazing and busy local market and some streets and squares in the center. Then, the road takes us to the historical city of Cachoeira that lies majestically in the valley of the Paraguaçu river. Here, we stroll through the picturesque streets with its old colonial houses and churches and there will be time for lunch. In the afternoon we visit the cigar factory of Dannemann where the famous top class cigars are still hand rolled.
