    Hey man, I'm an English teacher in Salvador and I was looking for some cool videos to use with my students to talk about places, its features, good qualities and problems, and I thought "Um.. maybe some tourist have already made what I'm looking for" and I found your video. I don't know you, you don't know me, but you're helping me a lot. Thanks! Also, I liked your page here on youtube and I hit the subscribe!

    I had to look it up because I'd never heard of it, and I'm pretty "geography savvy". My husband and I had similar experiences of people bothering us and wanting us to buy things etc in Xalapa in Mexico a few years ago. And how awful your little one was caught in a riptide – thank goodness he is ok!

    I was born in Salvador and I agree with you about the Love/Hate, but you didn't go to some amazing places like Morro de São Paulo and "Baía de Todos os Santos" Islands(Ilha dos Frades, Itaparica, etc). Nice video!

    I have spent a good deal of time both in Mexico, Brazil and elsewhere. I do have to say that crime in the larger cities is much worse than what you see in the US in both of those countries. But most of it involving tourist is petty stuff like getting your camera, wallet or watch snatched. I tell people that if they can survive a big city in the US than they can do ok in the cities of Brazil when it comes to crime. I liked Brazil much better than Mexico. No real comparison. Better food, friendlier people. I also like the beach culture in Bahia and elsewhere.
    Just like the US night becomes a different story. It's not as safe walking around exploring at night in Brazil. Also try to link up with locals if you travel at night. Take taxis. Don't carry valuables. But do visit Bahia. The nightlife, food, beaches and shopping are all terrific.

    Salvador is the city of my dreams. I had the time of my life there, met my wife, amazing friends and artists. Baianos are amazing, hilarious hustlers with an unbelievably vibrant culture man. The only true “hate” on that list is the crime, even though I never came across any while there. Obrigado pela hospitalidade Salvador, minha casa verdadeira. Axé.
