Somewhere to stay over Carnival

by superj8m

I arrive in Rio on the 21st- and I'm booked up with hostels till the 4th. All the hostels I've found over carnival are over my budget. Any ideas?

Re: Somewhere to stay over Carnival

Carnaval space is expensive and demand is there to fill it, esp. the cheaper alternatives. Prices will not go down. The closer it gets, the harder it is to locate anything.
Plan to spend the time elsewhere, in a place that doesn't have a big celebration.
Keep looking for last minute posts about people who had to cancel or want to divide a space, and might want to bargain.
Do a lot of work on the phone calling for availability of anything in Rio and bite the bullet and pay.

Thankyou for your advice- I've found somehwere for the 3rd and 4th but not the other dates. do you think I should wait till i get there to find somewhere (maybe knowing the place a little better) or book online now?

try david at

if you get desperate. i assume your budget is a bit tight if you're staying in hostels, but if you need a great apt. near the beach, he possibly has openings.

As you might have found out, prices during carnival are 5-10 times low season prices. Keep an eye on travel forums for sharing accomodation, and on sites such as craigslist. Or try emailing RioCharm at info@riocharm.com.br - they have helped me out before...

Crossed my mind that some people who works in Rio lives in Niteroi. Both cities are close enough to allow this conduct. And ferry boats/catamaran (for natives and tourists) use to carry people quickly from Rio to Niteroi.
I am pasteing some links concerned in timetables:

http://www.barcas-sa.com.br/publique_barcas/templates/htm/barcas_2/interna_horarios_tarifas.asp

Dock in Rio is at Praça XV and in Niteroi is at Praça Arariboia. Both places are very near downtown.
Now, let's talk about Niteroi's hotels. As far as I read at my brazilian guides there are two advised "one star" hotels there:
--> Niteroi Palace; Rua Andrade Neves, 134; downtown
--> Icarai Praia; Rua Belisario Augusto, 21; Icarai district
Hope you good luck again. Cassiovieggore

If you wait until you get to Rio to book, you run the real risk of not finding a place. Then what would you do? Make a PLAN B now.

Hearts of Palm

by b1bob

The sabal palmetto is grown, harvested, and canned as a cash crop throughout Central and South America, especially Brazil. It needs 150 inches (375 cm.) of rainfall each year to flourish, and can't take cold weather. It is harvested at a year or at a height of 5 feet (1.5 m.) Hearts of palm used to be a staple in a poor man's diet, but it became a gourmet delicacy. It might not look like much, but hearts of palm is a healthy addition to salads as they have no cholesterol, good fiber content, hardly any fat, and are low in calories.

LET THE CHILDREN PLAY

by RafaelTheSecond

Elton and i were in front of the first Royal Palace made in Latin America in 1756, in the neighborhood of São Cristovão. Of course we were speaking in english which called the attention of a group of children, and we had a blast. Children are very frank and one of them ask us if fat people in the States should pay tolls????
