Salvador is the biggest city in the northeast of Brazil and the capital of the state of Bahia, which is why most of time it's called Salvador da Bahia. Salvador is recognized as being the happiest town in Brazil, due to the friendly people and their will to party all the time. Definitely, you will feel like you are at home.
Salvador has a lot to offer, like beautiful beaches and water sports, as well as being a city rich in architecture and culture. Salvador has a lot of cafes, restaurants, and gift/souvenir shops (where you can buy different pieces of art crafts like earrings, bracelets, rings, and clothes, all really cheap).
If possible, try to conciliate your trip to Salvador with Carnival. Salvador da Bahia is known for having the best Carnival party (it's only bested by the amazing and famous carnival in Rio de Janeiro). The party of Carnival in Salvador happens on the main street, with live music shows, a lot of people dancing the samba and forro (the typical music of Brazil) and drinking until dawn –- if you like to party, you will love this, especially because it's during the summer. Another good time to visit this city is the New Year's Eve -- you will not regret it.
There are a lot of hostels in Salvador, most of them really cheap and with simple, good facilities. In high season or event times, try to book your hostel in Salvador in advance to have better rates and assure vacancies.

Salvador Travel Tips & Suggestions
Be extremely cautious of your belongings here as petty theft is very common.
Definitely stay in the Pelourinho district. There are a lot of things to do in the area. Beware of beggars and people trying to sale you little ribbons as "gifts" or "presents". They are trying to scam you. Visit the beaches, especially on Sat/Sun.
