Getting to Trancoso, Brazil

Fly to São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, or, better yet, Salvador (American Airlines now has daily service from Miami), then on to Porto Seguro. Be advised: Trancoso has few functioning ATM’s, so bring all the Brazilian cash you’ll need or withdraw it at the airport on your way in. Rent a car at the airport—it’s an hour to Trancoso—or hire a driver ($113) through Mangue Alto Turismo (55-73/9147-3882; manguealto.com.br). Owner Henrique Costa speaks fluent English and knows the region well. Consider booking your entire trip—domestic flights, ground transport, and lodgings—with São Paulo–based travel outfitter Matueté (866/709-5952 or 55-11/3071-4515; matuete.com). Cofounder Bobby Betenson is featured on T+L’s 2008 A-List.
