when and where to buy Tickets to parades, Sambodromo etc

by andrew.rowe86

Hey guys when is the best time to purchase tickets to the Sambodromo for Carnaval 2011??

Should I pre book or wait to get to Rio and book in my hostel or somewhere?

What is the best yet affordable area to book tickets (i.e. what section of the stands etc?)

Cheers!

There are two links below you may trust in to deal buying.

Generally all tickets are sold out before carnival. So I suggest you get them before Christmas...
Good luck. Cassiovieggore

All the tickets you can see on the web are being sold by middlemen of one sort or another (travel agencies, ticket sellers, accomodations, etc) who bought them at a time and under conditions when the majority of tourists couldn't (Brazilian ID and waiting on the phone at the preset time).
This is one agency that has proved reliable over the years fpr online purchase. They deliver to your accomodation in Rio.
www.rio-carnival.net
On their site, you will find lots of info (and a map) describing the various sections, type of seating (grandstand, tables, etc) and their pricing. Somewhere in the middle (5,7,11) is my sugggestion. (Note: Section 9 is bought up for foreign tourists at a very high price.) Maybe check back here before you make a final, more informed decision.
The actual 2-part tickets are not available until just at Carnaval, so don't expect anything actually "in hand" until you arrive, but you should book now.

Travel Tips for Rio de Janeiro

Visually Striking

by kaloz

Rio de Janeiro is set btween the ocean and the hills, this breaks up the city and makes it feel more small town and friendly. There is always something to look at: the beaches, the hills, inland lakes, a forest, and the people.

Movies to watch

by Dabs

We watched "City of God" before we went to Rio, its based on a true story, set in one of Rio's most notorious favleas (slums). Rent it on DVD and you get the equally interesting documentary.

"Bus 174" is a documentary about a bus hijacking in Rio in 2000 by a street kid named Sandro do Nascimento, the story of his life is intertwined with real footage from the hostage situation. The incompetence of the police, low paid workers who can't find employment elsewhere, is almost unbearable to watch as the story unfolds to it's tragic conclusion.

Another film worth renting is "Central Station" about the relationship that develops between a young orphaned boy and an older childless woman who works as a letter writer in Rio's train station.

For scenes of Rio, rent the James Bond movie "Moonraker", the cable car scene was filmed at Sugarloaf in Rio.

RIO IS GREEN

by marcbrazil

When you walk in the streets of Rio you quickly note lots of trees, shady streets specially in the southern part of the town, when you decide to visit the forests of Rio you will see that people are used to eb all surrounded by green and their nature is their main things that make a CARIOCA happy...The people is all surrounded by a thick greenery everywhere they go, specially when we walk at the Paineiras, one of the hidden parts of Tijuca Forest that I had the honor to see....INDEED WHEN WE HAVE SUCH A GREAT CITY LIKE RIO, WE FIND MANY REASONS TO COME BACK AND STAY. I have found mine! Floresta da tijuca is part of many tours offered in Rio, but they never explore the area as locals do, so it is better for you to try to get someone who loves the city and simply know how to enjoy life in the best and privileged spots of Rio.

Ipanema early-morning workouts

by morgane1692

If you wake up before, say, noon, you can catch these diligent folks on the beach there, right across the street, crunching and stretching and sweating. Better them than you, right? You have places to go, go, GO.

Da coppers

by Groentje

The police do not have a particularly good image in Brasil, at least, that was my general feeling. I once had a drink in a bar, and they were just sitting next to me, also drinking Antarktika beer! That would be not done over here in Belgium...
I also read in my Lonely Planet that you have to make sure that you are in line with everything, otherwise they could stop you and ask ridiculous fines (e.g. for not wearing your security belt)...
Roberta told me about this poor person who kidnapped someone, just as a way to get out of poverty. He was never going to kill that person, but the police just came barging in, shot him and then eventually killed him. It happened to be broadcast live, and the nation was shocked...).
I must say, though, that it might be hard to be a good cop in Rio. Just have a look at "Cidade de Deus"... I went through one of these favelas (actually a really rough one) by mistake one day with Roberta (fortunately we were guided by a social worker, but more on that later), and it really got me down. Apparently, the police have just given up on the neighbourhood, and only come there to hunt down criminals and shoot them...
What a world, right?
