By Car: Take the BR324 towards Feira de Santana then take the BR116 and the BR 242 in the direction of Seabra. Lençois will be signposted off to the left before you get to Seabra. Journey time around 5 hours.


By Bus: These are operated by the Real Expresso company and there are 2 a day, one leaving at 13.00 and one at 23.00, cost R$59,10 one way. Both take around 6 hours so if you are staying at Alcino Estalagem  or Pousada Vila Serrano let the pousada know if you are taking the night bus so that they can wait up for you.

Note: A sister bus company to Real Expresso- Rapido Federal appears to offer a 7.00am departure time Salvador to Lençois as well but we have beeen unable to confirm whether this exists year round

at a round trip cost from Salvador  of around R$550.00. However there is only one flight in and out per week both of which go on Thursdays.  At present lights leave  Salvador at 13.33 and return from Lençois at 14.55. Journey time around 1 hour.

By bus:  The same bus company that comes from Salvador- Real Expresso also runs a very irregular service between Lençois and Palmeiras from where you will need to get a taxi transfer if you are trying to get to Pousada Lagoa das Cores. Ask the pousada for times or arrange a transfer from Lençois with them.

By car: Get back on the main road in the direction of Seabra  (opposite direction from Itaberaba) and then take a left towards Palmeiras. Pousada Lagoa das Cores is halfway between Palmeiras and the tiny village Vale do Capão further down the same road. Journey time approximately 1 hour.
