Frequently Asked Questions

You will certainly have a lot of questions if you are playing with the idea of taking a trip with us to South America, such as:

What is the best time to visit Almada Farm?

Our holiday program runs year round. It is always pleasantly warm, with an average high between 26º - 29º C (78º - 85º F). During the Christmas holidays, it is summer in Bahia. Roots are slightly drier and the trees bloom in glorious colours. During the summer months of the northern hemisphere, temperatures are more moderate, but it rains a little more.

How fit do I need to be in order to enjoy these holidays?

You will relax with us. All activities are optional and can be customized to your personal fitness level.

What vaccinations are needed for travel to Bahia?

Check your vaccination certificates and make sure they’re up to date. All general vaccinations should be in effect. Talk to your doctor about possible risks. In general, the chances of infection or infectious disease with us are very low. In particular, we are not in a malaria region.

What should I pack?

Passport Credit card (you can get cash at every ATM) Sunhat Sunglasses Sunscreen Mosquito repellent Swimsuit Shorts T-shirts Sandals Camera Lightweight, long-sleeved tropical shirt Lightweight long trousers (for the forest) Lightweight trekking shoes Lightweight raincoat When needed, you can borrow rubber boots from us.

I'm afraid of wild animals. Am I at risk on the farm?

Generally, there are no dangerous animals at Almada. Encounters with insects and spiders, of course, can’t be ruled out. If you keep your eyes open, you might catch sight of a harmless snake in the forest.

Can I justify a long-haul flight if I want to live an environmentally responsible life?

There’s no doubt about it – travel pollutes the environment, especially long-haul flights. As active environmentalists, we are committed to ecotourism and have made the preservation of nature and environmental awareness one of our priorities. However, we believe that even in a globalized world, travel should continue to be part of our cultural life. Discovering foreign countries and civilizations helps to better understand relationships and to promote openness and tolerance among people. To compensate (at least symbolically) for the amount of greenhouse gases that your plane leaves as an ecological footprint, we purchase a corresponding number of seedlings and plant them together with local environmental groups in the area of Almada Farm. We would be very happy to provide you with information on this topic at any time during your stay.

Should you have any further questions, please don’t hesitate to ask the experts at your travel agency.
