Getting There & Away
Caravelas isn't easy to get to. Buses to the town are infrequent, sometimes only coming and going once or twice a week in the winter low season. Aguia Branca (www.aguiabranca.com.br) goes to Salvador (R$172, 16 hours) and Eunapolis (R$42, 4¾ hours), convenient if you're trying to come or go from the Porto Seguro area. More frequent buses run to Teixeira de Freitas, 74km west. The bus station is located in the center of town.
If you're planning to pass through on your way to Abrolhos planning an organized excursion that includes a transfer is probably the best option. You can also rent a car in the Porto Seguro area and drive down. Make sure to confirm that this is OK with the rental company, as some do have limits on which municipalities you're allowed to take their cars.
