‪יולי 2019‬
‪"Barra do Pote" is a beach located on Itaparica Island, in Bahia. There are several ways to get there, boat, car, topic, etc. I went with 30 friends on bus in this trip in June 2019, but precisely during the celebration of "São João", typical party of the northeast of the Brazil. Most people prefer go to island during summer, but I prefer in the winter because it's calmer, cheaper, cleaner, emptier and lodging and food are cheaper. Our hotel in high season costs around R$150.00 per day, on this trip we paid R$ 50.00. Going to the island during winter is the perfect option for peoples like calm and privacy. At this time the water is warm and at night, you can make luau and bonfires on the shore. The bad part of going during "festejos juninos" are the bombs that are customary to drop at this time of year, but nothing that interferes with the peace the island brings. The Beira Mar Hotel, where we stayed, was not very safe and because it was in front of the sea was very susceptible to attacks, on our last night there was a shooting at the party of "São João" that takes place in the central square of the beach and some bandits left towards. There was nothing in our hotel, but we couldn't sleep, because we didn't know if the noises we heard were gunshots or bombs. Even with this incident, my friends and I love the trip, and we will certainly go back to the island at this time, but next time we will choose a hotel with better security because as much as the beach is calmer and empty, this type incident can occur anywhere and is always well prepared.‬
