Ports

Salvador da Bahia in Brazil used to be the colonial capital, and is one of the oldest cities in the Americas. Today it is a lively place with 3.5 million inhabitants, noted for its cuisine, music, and architecture. Around Salvador you can go swimming, sailing, diving, surfing, and underwater fishing in the bays and inlets. But don’t forget to visit both the High City and the Low City, as they offer shopping, parks, and entertainment for locals and seafaring visitors alike.

Punta del Este is a city in southeastern Uruguay, popular among the tourists for its many attractions. Climb the beautiful, 45-metre high lighthouse for amazing views, see La Mano de Punta del Este, famous sculpture which is a symbol of town and enjoy watersports on the scenic beaches. If you're lucky, you may even spot a southern right whale!
