Porto Seguro

Historically, Porto Seguro is significant: it's the point where Portuguese sailors first landed in the land now known as Brazil. But apart from its small historic center, the city is more a popular destination for Brazilian and Argentinian package tourists – here for beach action and nightlife – and high schoolers on school-break holidays. Many travelers linger in town only long enough to catch the ferry toward the lovely coastline and mellow village of nearby Arraial d’Ajuda.
