Rio’s spectacular carnivals are probably the most famous in the world. It’s fun, it’s exciting, it’s rather mad but it is a fantastic Brazilian experience.
Twenty-five samba schools compete for the championships and work goes on throughout the year to get floats and costumes ready for the annual extravaganza which takes place in the city’s purpose-built Sambadrome.
Carnivals 2018 will take place 09 – 13 February with the main parades on Sunday 11th and Monday 12th Feb.
Travellers should note that the hotels on Copacabana have a minimum three or four night stay (at a premium). Please contact us to discuss your preferences and prices.
If you would like to book seats in the grandstand at the Sambadrome for the carnival parades on Sunday 11th February or Monday 12th February, please contact us.
