Orientation

In the past few years, almost all of the Lençóis' streets have been officially renamed. The locals, of course, continue to use the original names, causing confusion for tourists. Note that while some businesses have embraced using their new addresses, many have not: you might have trouble when you're asking for directions. Luckily, Lençóis is small and easy to navigate, but if you're arriving at night, you should look at the map so you know where you're going when you arrive at the bus station. It's also common for staff from pousadas (guesthouses) and hostels to meet the buses arriving from Salvador: ask ahead if you'd like some help getting from the station to your destination.
