Ilhéus Highlights & Tijuípe Falls

The best thing to do in Ilhéus proper is roam its atmospheric old town, a no-filter-necessary collage of colonial buildings and colorful architecture, and take in such highlights as Jorge Amado's house, Catedral de São Sebastião and the historic Bar Vesúvio, where two of Amado's fictional protagonists met. Outside town, beat the heat in the cool spray of Cachoeira de Tijuípe, a short but wide waterfall tucked away in the rain forest that makes for an excellent and photogenic dip.
