Rio Carnival Interests??

26 Oct 2012 Cas-norwest asked


Hey everyone!!
I'm Casey, 19 fom AUS :) I'm planning on doing the Rio Carnival trip in Feb, any one else thinking about it? Or has anyone been before and how'd you find it?
It looks like so much fun! Probably going to do another trip once Carnival is finished aswell, though recovery time will probably be needed :)

    Hi everyone! I’m really considering doing this trip in the new year.
    I’m desperate to travel to South America but would be hopeless without a tour group.
    Would love to hear people’s past experiences with Rio Carnival (or South America in general). I’m from Australia too. Oh and I’d also be doing the trip solo! :)

    Hay has anyone noticed that the itinerary says that we are going to the parade on the third day. But according to carnival there is no show on at the sambadrome on the 12th. The shows are only on the 10th and 11th. Also has anyone received itinerary about what time to be at hotel?
