  • I was in town visiting the Samba School Grande Rio Samba Barracaõ. A wonderful experience, saw behind the parade. Floats being finalized, the location where the workshops where fantasies are made, we heard an excellent explanation about the origin of samba and especially about Tia Ciata. The video was presented a lecture on the formation of the school. Loved the tour.

  • Place where the top 12 Samba schools are grouped. Construction of tanks, making the costumes of Carnival. A magical place to know and appreciate the magic of Carnival.

  • I'm suspect to talk about the Carnival, because every year I parade in samba schools. What people don't know is that if you know the right people can parade around in 1, 2 3 even in 4 schools without spending more than R $100.00. Yes, there are wards choreographed. Not easy to be a part of. But worth trying. Go in the evenings during the week, by the way in November, and wander there, will see various groups rehearsing. Are the wings CHOREOGRAPHED. Ask if you can participate. Can't miss rehearsals, starts in October or November, happens 1 time per week, in the evening, until the week of the Carnival. you have to know the samba, learn the choreography and every year back in to search for other groups and connect the right people. Be sure to live this experience once in a lifetime. Spectacular.

Where to stay in Rio de Janeiro

Accommodations in Rio de Janeiro cover as diverse a spectrum as the city itself. At the top end, you can find plenty of luxury hotels along the beaches of Zona Sul, the city's southern zone, which includes the renowned Copacabana and Ipanema beaches. For something to suit a budget, but with good beach access, look around the less crowded neighborhoods of Catele and Flamengo. If you want to stay as centrally as possible, without feeling like you're in a business district, look for lodgings in the colorful, bohemian neighborhood of Santa Teresa.
