Brazil Investment Hotspots – Bahia

Bahia is located on the north-east coast of Brazil. The area has some stunning beaches and a fantastic year-round tropical climate. Prices have been increasing at around 20% per annum, but the area still remains affordable and is at the centre of Brazil’s tourism push.

Bahia is one of Brazil’s original tourist states and is certainly geared up for investment with some of the best infrastructure in Brazil. The World Bank has given Bahia a $16 billion infrastructure grant, as part of a 15-year initiative to attract tourists. Major developers and hotel operators have been investing heavily in the area as demand from local buyers, foreign investors and those from elsewhere in Brazil rises.

If you are looking for a traditional holiday-let investment, Bahia may be the best opportunity Brazil has to offer, but don’t expect the profits you might make by investing in buy-to-let elsewhere.


Key Area: Arraial d’Ajuda

This sought-after Bahia village is located on a plateau overlooking some spectacular coastline. If Bahia is the place for holiday home investors, then this is where the Brazilians are looking to invest in theirs.

Arraial is close to all the facilities you might require from a holiday resort, yet it still retains its village charm. Due to its unique location and popularity with foreign investors and holiday-home investors in Brazil, Arraial d’Ajuda is destined to become one of the most sought-after places to invest in Bahia.

There is an international airport close by, which means Arraial is well connected by air as well as road to the rest of Brazil. The airport is well served by domestic airlines and chartered flights from Europe.
