Trancoso is one of Porto Seguro’s districts right by Vale Verde, Arraial D’Ajuda, Coroa Vermelha, Caraíva, and Santa Cruz de Cabrália and is part of the Discovery Route in Southern Bahia.
Trancoso is one of Brazil’s oldest settlements, founded by Jesuits in the XVI century. This rare, precious, and secluded corner of the country was rediscovered in the 1970s, this time by a group of hippies who were enchanted by the magic of the place. Since then, among fishermen, artisans, and travelers in search of peace and love, Trancoso has gained an increasing number of visitors inspired by the emerald sea, white sand, corals, and coconut groves.
Today, Trancoso has become a charming and trendy village, and the Quadrado square brings together sophisticated restaurants, cool bars, cafes, charming shops, and studios in its old, colorful houses, protected by IPHAN (National Institute of Historical and Artistic Heritage), with the iconic São João Batista Church in the background.
A few minutes from Quadrado, the Pousada Tutabel is immersed in the Atlantic Forest experience: arriving at the Itapororoca Beach, one of the region’s most stunning and well-preserved, is probably the definition of a land (or sand) paradise.
The feeling is that of a summer house. A beach almost exclusively yours, with more shells than visitors. On one side there is the sea, on the other, the forest. The Pousada lies between them,by the sandbank. Every corner is an invitation to relax and connect with Bahia’s exuberant nature. Immersion in the Bahia culture also takes place through gastronomy, with a menu inspired by native flavors and scents.
Pousada Tutabel has the comfort of only 18 suites, a pool, gym, sauna, beach and forest experiences in a Private Reservation of Natural Heritage.
The Quadrado Square
Missing the buzz? If you feel like seeing people, it only takes 15 minutes to get to the center of Trancoso and everything is there: sophisticated restaurants, cool bars, cafes, charming shops, and art studios, with the iconic São João Batista church in the background.
Adjacent to Pousada Tutabel, the ‘RPPN Rio do Brasil’ is an environmental reserve with 975 hectares, stunning and abundant, home to several endangered species such as the Chauá Parrot (Amazona rhodocorytha), endangered, and the extremely rare White-tailed Sabrewing Hummingbird (Phaethornis margarettae). It promotes sustainable development and environmental education for visitors, whether they are residents or tourists.
In RPPN Rio do Brasil, visitors not only experience immersion in the forest as they descend the river, forming a corridor surrounded by Atlantic Forest trees, but also through time and history, by kayaking in the 'country's first mapped river' by Europeans.
