Nestled in the heart of Brazil's cacao-producing region, Ilheus offers a blend of attractive architecture, coastal scenery, and intriguing history. Founded in 1534, the city grew rich on cacao late in the 19th century, sparking heated and often violent rivalries among the elite plantation owners, who used slave labor to harvest the crop. The city's most famous son, Jorge Amado, paints a vivid potrait of Ilheus' cacao wars in several of his novels. Today the wide beaches, warm waters, and tropical surroundings inspire many visitors to take a trip to Ilheus. Arrange all the small, but important details of your Ilheus trip itinerary using our Brazil day trip website.
