With so much going on Salvador Bahia, finding accommodation during this busy carnival season was the least of my worries- thanks to Airbnb!
Carnival in Brazil has been on my bucket list of places and things to do for many years. Why not make it a reality in 2013?!
And that’s exactly what I did! To experience Carnival in Salvador Bahia, the biggest street party in the world, is literally a dream come true!
But why with airbnb?
Well, as a female travelling solo, my main priority is safety. Safety in terms of location, and also regarding money. Payment for accommodation is made online through airbnb.com so I don’t have to deal with any awkward situations exchanging money with my host. Also as airbnb hold onto payment until 24hrs after check in, someone posting a fake listing or running off with the money is highly unlikely.
Another reason I choose to book accommodation with airbnb as oppose to a hotel, is that I wanted to stay with locals! And this has no doubt enhanced my stay! When I booked my accommodation in Salvador using airbnb , little did I know what added extras I’d have in store!
Not only am I staying with a lovely family, but my host Alberto also happens to be a percussionists and will be playing in a variety of samba bands during the season! I’ve been invited to join along!
Follow my journey here as I experience Carnival (7th-13th February) for the first time… Using airbnb!
