Planning a trip to Rio De Janeiro during the Carnival can be an exhilarating experience. Rio Carnival is famous worldwide and attracts tourists from all corners of the world. Here are a few steps on how to prepare for this incredible trip:

  1. Decide on a Budget: Determine your budget for this trip as Carnival can be quite expensive. Keep in mind costs such as flights, accommodation, and food, as well as entry fees to various Samba Schools and parties.

  2. Booking Flight and Accommodation: Plan and book your flight tickets well in advance as fares skyrocket during Carnival. The same applies to hotels. Book a hotel near the Sambadrome or the city center if you can.

  3. Carnival Tickets: Decide the Samba Schools you’d like to watch and purchase tickets in advance. Tickets can be expensive, but it’s a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

  4. Plan Your Activities: There are other events during Carnival like street parties, or “blocos”. Do your research and plan your schedule so you won’t miss out on these fun events.

  5. Pack Accordingly: Rio is hot during Carnival. Pack light, breathable clothing, comfy shoes for dancing, a good sunscreen, and don’t forget your costumes!

  6. Learn a Few Portuguese Phrases: While English is commonly spoken, knowing a few phrases in Portuguese will enhance your experience.

  7. Stay Safe: Keep your belongings secure, avoid deserted alleys especially at night, and stay hydrated.

Have loads of fun as you immerse yourself in the vibrant culture and join the biggest party in Brazil!
