Traveling from the south of Salvador:
If you are arriving from the south of Salvador many of the buses pass through Feira de Santana on their way to Salvador. Get off there and catch the bus connecting to Lençois (coming from Salvador).
Depending on road conditions it takes about 5 to 6 hours to drive the 420 km between Salvador and Lençois. There is an alternative route via BA 052 or “Estrada do Feijão”.
Shortly after Feira de Santana turn right to Ipirá. From there take a left turn and drive until Itaberaba. Doing so you can avoid the heavy traffic on the BR116.
