Having just returned about a month ago from my first visit to Tulum Mexico I found these comments intriguing . Tulum was beautiful and laid back. Call it the new Tulum says Conde Nast Travel have to take their word for it. ! Trancoso, in Brazil’s Bahia State, has perfectly clear waters, a breezy, buzzy scene, and so many off- duty fashion people that you wonder who’s left in Milan and Paris. Strict zoning laws keep this fishermen’s town low-key and intimate. Seems like and ideal place to bring a good book and disappear in plain sight.
