A bit of a problem with the regionification scheme for this state - the regions are based on official tourism regions, but as you can see from the map below, they do not cover the entire state, and thus are unsuitable for top level regions:

So... We can perhaps use the some of above as second-level regions if necessary, but for the top-level regions, I think it would be better to use the official "mesoregions", as shown in the second map:

If nobody has any objections, I'm soon going to make this change, and hopefully adapt that map to make a wikivoyage-style map. Anyone have any comments? Texugo (talk) 00:54, 19 March 2013 (UTC)

OK. I have plunged forward here. I went ahead and put the second map in the article as well, so we have something at least. Perhaps I will have time to adapt it into a WV-style map one day soon.Texugo (talk) 18:01, 25 March 2013 (UTC)
Well, maybe the South littoral should be subdivided as the familiar "Coasts" that are already in use touristically; but it's not crucial or urgent at this moment IMHO. 21:27, 25 March 2013 (UTC)
I was thinking about that too, dividing, not at the top level, but subdividing the South section, but, I don't know what to do with those areas which are not actually on the coast. Would it actually make sense to extend Whale Coast, etc. (see first map above) all the way across to the western border, including those other towns that are not even on the coast?

I think it's best to leave those inner cities at the upper South article. Not many of them have much touristic importance anyway. (200.252...)
I'm not sure that it jives well with our typical subdivision scheme to subdivide some parts and leaves the rest under the parent article. At any rate, I did leave the 4 southern coast articles as redirects to South (Bahia), with the coast destination grouped under the 4 headings. I suppose that is probably good enough for now.

"Sleep" listings[edit]

It's obviously inappropriate to have any specific listings at the statewide level, but just in case these aren't listed in some other article and merit moving there, here goes:



  • Butterfly House, Rodovia BR-030, KM 14 - Praia de Cassange, Marau - BA, 45520-000, Brazil, +55 73 9915-4113, . Eco-resort 250km south of Salvador, boasting eight beautiful villas, a palm-enshrouded swimming pool, gastronomic restaurant, family playroom and acres of tropical gardens sprinkled with hammocks and bamboo recliners.
