By car from the international airport of Salvador to Imbassaí. Distance: 65 kilometers or 40 miles.
When you rent a car, it isn't so hard to get to Imbassaí.
When you leave the airport along the beautiful bamboo-shaded road, there is no other option than to turn right and go north (the opposite of Salvador). You are already in the right direction and just follow the highway 'Estrada do Coco'.
It is parallel to the coastline, which you will see regularly. After the first miles, the highway is very well maintained.
After Praia do Forte the highway is called 'Linha Verde' and Imbassaí is just 6 miles further .
