Experiencing Rio Carnival

The scale of the festivities is hard to imagine till you find yourself in the midst of all that loud chaos. The highlight of the Carnival is the Samba Parade.

Several prestigious balls (ranging from formal black tie to costumed) with live music and dancing are held in upscale hotels and theaters. The city also hosts over 500 street parties across every neighborhood with thousands of partygoers. Be prepared to indulge in your share of Samba, Brazilian funk, and Caipirinhas!
