To those arriving from Salvador
(whether driving or not), the ferryboat is an option.
It leaves the sea terminal at São Joaquim towards
Bom Despacho (in Itaparica Island) and takes around
In Bom Despacho you can take a two-hour bus ride to
Valença, where you can take a speedboat (half-hour
ride) to Morro
de São Paulo. There may be some considerable
waiting periods between these connections.
To those driving from Valença,
Camamú, Salvador or via BR 101, the best deal
is to leave the car at Atracadouro de Bom Jardim, near
Ponta do Curral. There is a parking lot and speedboats
that take 10 minutes to get to Morro de São Paulo.
You may also take a cab
from Bom Despacho to Valença, which reduces overall
time in 40 minutes, since you can go straight to Atracadouro
Bom Jardim and take the same speedboat ride described
