Green-blue sea on one side and Atlantic rainforest on the other made Ilheus the postcard of the Cocoa Coast (Costa do Cacau). Filled with mansions and palaces that were built by the coffee barons remain intact. Some farms in the region are open for visitors and tell you the process of cultivation of cocoa from the plantation to the post-harvesting process, including a tasting. In Ilhéus is also the Park Road (Estrada Parque), the first ecological highway in the country, with pristine beaches, mangroves and waterfalls.
