Hi! And welcome (bem vindo)
Hi! I’m Jen Santos, Founder and Chief Enchantment Officer here at Salvador Guidebook.
There is something magical about Salvador da Bahia that can’t be put into words. Trust me, I’ve tried.
There is an ease, a happiness, and a general lightness that comes from being in Salvador. A culture of community and a work-to-live lifestyle have deep roots here.
The Brazilian Portuguese have a word — sossego — that translates to “ease”, but the more nuanced definition is “life in a hammock. The good life.”
I have watched countless people visit, and I see sossego and belonging take over. It is a place where you can genuinely come and just “you do you” — no judgment. People leave transformed and eager to return.
