Why take this tour?

Located in the extreme north of Bahia belonging to the city of Jandaíra, Mangue Seco is an ecological paradise with desert beaches on a peninsula full of dunes, mangroves and coconut palms. On the beaches to the north there are rustic kiosks with typical dishes from the region, cold drinks and even hammocks to rest. During a buggy ride, we can observe the markings of the turtle nests made by the TAMAR Project. We will have the opportunity to contemplate the entire peninsula, its mangroves and coconut trees on the schooner crossing to Mangue Seco. He was senator in the soap opera “Tieta do Agreste”, based on the book by the Bahian writer Jorge Amado. For those who are on the North Coast, it is faster than going to Salvador, a very good road without traffic jams where you can contemplate our Atlantic forest, mangroves, coconut and eucalyptus plantations. Note: Buggy ride payment
