Porto Seguro holds a significant portion of Brazil’s nature and history: on April 22, 1500, Pedro Álvares Cabral and his Portuguese ships landed right there. Since then, the region, which would later be named Costa do Descobrimento (Discovery Coast), has become a major national tourist destination. Between the colonization period constructions and the indigenous reserve that directly influenced local culture, the coastline displays a diversity of mangroves, cliffs, coconut trees and a sea that is sometimes light blue, and sometimes acqua green, while national parks preserve even greener areas of Atlantic Forest.
The county of Porto Seguro, besides housing the district of the same name, combines three other tourist destinations that together form four in one. These places, that cultivate both charm and simplicity, are among the most delightful in the country: between Arraial d’Ajuda, Trancoso and Caraíva, you will surely find your beach – or be enchanted by them all.

The agreement between Airbnb and Porto Seguro was the first initiative of the company’s Responsible Tourism Center, launched globally last year. The commitment made by the platform is that the local residents are the main beneficiary of authentic tourism, focused on the development of the community itself, as long as tourism activity grows and becomes relevant to the economy.
