If you are already in Brazil, it is cheaper to take a bus from a major city than to fly. You can take a bus from Salvador. It is an overnight bus ride that takes around 12 hours.
If you are staying in the downtown area, you can walk most places. You can actually walk down the hill from the bus station to downtown. If you are unfamiliar with the city and have bags, it's better to get a taxi.
If you book tours, they will provide transportation. There is also a bus system if you want to get out of downtown. To see Arraial d’Ajuda, take the ferry across the river and take a bus to Arraial.
There are numerous reputable buggy rental companies with offices around the centre of town. Prices range from 60-80 BRL per day.
Steer well clear of the car rental company Terra Matter. Their buggies are very poorly maintained. In the case of a breakdown, they offer absolutely no compensation.
What to see
Replica of Pedro Alvares Cabral's Ship You can walk there from down town. It's North of down town on the beach. If it's closed, you can see all you really need to see from the beach.
Historic City - Up the hill near the bus station is a historic area that has some of the first houses and churches the Portuguese built in Brazil. There are local "guides" that stand at the top of the stairs and give decent tours of the historic city but it's tough to find one who speaks english.
Recife de Fora - This is a very popular tour. During low tide, the tour guides will take you out to the reef so you can see the sea life in the reef. Be aware that in the tour they have you stand on the reef which kills the reef. This tour is not recommended because by taking the tour, you are contributing to the destruction of the reef.
Reserva Pataxó da Jaqueira. About 9 km north of downtown, between the Barramares beach club and the town of Coroa Vermelha. Very rough, unpaved access road. This is an area of 827 hectares (2,044 acres) where you can see how the indigenous Pataxó Indians live. You'll walk through the reserve and stop about a dozen times as the guide explains the immediate surroundings .
Arraial d’Ajuda Eco Parque - This water park is across the river from Porto Seguro in Arraial d'Ajuda. Be sure to check the operating hours before you take a trip across the river. On the off season, they are not open every day.
Praia do Espelho - Curuípe has one of the best rated beaches in all of the country. Don't forget to stop at the indigenous village and see the sloths on the way.
