Morro de Sao Paulo

Getting to Morro de Sao Paulo

A catamaran took us from Salvador to Morro de Sao Paulo. The ride was about 2-3 hours long. Didn’t have a clue since I slept the whole way while listening to music. When stepping off the boat on to the island, we were met by a lot of “taxidrivers”. The island only has a few motor vehicles. Taxis here are wheel barrows to transport all your luggage but you have to walk all the way from the docks to your hotel or hostel. There’s a steep hill to climb and really the only obstacle someone might need some help with. We took all of our luggage on our own. I switched bags with Nadin because her bag was so heavy and fully packed that it almost created diamonds.

How we spent our day

It had been a week or so since we last were on a beach. So naturally, our day and afternoon would be spent in the sand. Me with some beer of course. Later on we had a nice dinner on the beach. After this, I decided to go back to our hotel, didn’t feel too good and I wanted to take it easy. Exhausted after all the trips. The girls went on a cool party.

Getting towards Boipeba

A 4×4 took us for an hour long ride through very rough terrain and sand. From there we had to take a boat crossing the river between the islands. It was easy to fix our transport through a tour company.

Back to Morro de Sao Paulo

After spending five days on Boipeba, it was time for another day back in Morro de Sao Paulo before going back to Salvador once again. We had some drinks and dinner but never went to the beach.
