Rio Carnivale 2011

by houseswapper

I have just discovered that I will be in Rio around the time of the Carnivale.
I am happy to have the opportunity but I am not wanting to hit the high increases in everything as I am an extended holiday on a tight budget.
I want to take advantage of the wonderful opportunity so I am wondering if there are any suggestions on ways to keep the costs down and at the same time have a taste of this amazing world event.

The price is the price at Carnaval. This is the time when accomodations make most of their yearly income. If you don't have the wherewithal to pay, someone else does, so bargaining is difficult. There are few ways to keep costs down except not to be in Rio, and even then, many other locations in Brazil have popular Carnaval celebrations, many Brazilians are travelling to get away, and anywhere in Brazil is likely also to be expensive. As I replied to you on the other thread, you could try signing up for Couchsurfing, but realize that there are millions of visitors coming to Rio at that time. Accomodations for Carnaval are usually sold in multi-night packages. Since demand is high, no accomodation needs to bargain about this. Some of the business hotels downtown might be cheaper than the ones in the tourist areas (Copacabana, Ipanema) and might not be so full (i.e. might bargain on how many nights stay, at the last minute). The cheapest option might be a bunk bed in a hostel dorm with 3-7 others, starting at about R$989 for 7 nights.

The main parade dates for the top level samba schools are Sunday and Monday (March 6 and 7). Seating is priced according to section in the Sambodromo. Take a look at this page for an explanation:
http://www.rio-carnival.net/sambodromo/sambodromo_tickets.php
There is also a Winners' Parade on the Saturday following, with slightly cheaper tickets (because the competition has already been decided). The lower level schools also parade (at different times), but the display is not as lavish.
There will also be street parties in most neighborhoods, which are free to all. The schedule and locations will be announced closer to the date.

If you are really on a tight budget, I would advise not being in Brazil at all during this period.

Re: Rio Carnivale 2011

Depending on how "tight" your budget is, Rio is an especially fun place to be during Carneval. A couple of years ago I stayed in a "delux" room at the Acapulco Copacabana Hotel, just off Av Atlantico and Princesa Isabel for US$100 a night.

Tickets for the sambadromo will set you back a pretty penny even in section 9, the tourist area. Watching the parades on TV in a bar or other establishment isn't nearly so much fun, but it's a reasonable alternative. Then there are all the many "free" parades --marches by amateur groups -- that are great fun.

Meals in top-rated or tourist-oriented restaurants may be escalated; but there are hundreds of restaurants -- including cafeterias that charge by the weight of your selections -- that are reasonable to downright cheap.

Book your hostel as soon as you can. I´´d sugest that http://www.riohostelproject.blogspot.com/

When you´ll be here, notice that carnaval has a different date every year.


See you.

Travel Tips for Rio de Janeiro

ATM & Banks in Brazil

by MikeAtSea

Brazil offers a number of banks, unfortunately not all accept international cards. In a number of cases I was not able to draw money at all, even though the bank should have accepted the card or the ATM was simply broken.
If you arrive in Brazil during carnival you will find all banks closed and hardly any foreign exchanges open. What makes matters worse that some shops during this time do not accept foreign currency.
This was my experience during carnival 2007 where I could not get Brazilian currency and could at some points not pay, even in tourist shops!!

More Carnival Costumes

by Hexepatty

I think you should see more since I have them. These costumes were on display at the Sheraton in Copa. VERY nice display, and even if you aren't guests you are allowed to come in to the lobby area and survey the lovely EXPENSIVE ornate costumes. We had lots of fun looking. But No Touching. There were security guards all over the place insuring this!!! That Quentin. Trying to look up the Girls Dress! Hmpfh!

Take the Santa Teresa trip...

by Yseut

Take the Santa Teresa trip with the old train. The view is absolutely beautiful.
When the train is arrived you can take a walk in the lovely streets, look at the beautiful houses. Out of time !
You alos have to go to the Corcovado (take the train, the station is adorable) and the Pão de Açucar for the views.
And don't forget to get your kids to the Jardim Botanico... I guess that my best memory of Rio is walking by the beaches (Ipanema and Leblon) early in the morning when it's not too hot, and there are not too many people. The atmosphere is great, peaceful.

Carnaval time

by Alless

This lively city joins in with Brazil's most famous event - 'Carnaval'. The five-day extravaganza starts at midnight on the Friday before 'Ash' Wednesday. Fantastic parades, colourful costumes and an exciting rhythmical sound, demonstrates street entertainment at its best. Visitors are welcome to take part.

These are the famous sidewalks...

by Luis_Alberto

These are the famous sidewalks of Copacabana beach. I also referred to the mosaics on the squares and sidewalks of Lisbon on my Portugal page, once again, these designs seem to unite the mother country, Portugal with Brazil.
