Experience the best of Carnival under the safe and knowledgeable guidance of your expert leader. They’re on hand to make sure you have a hassle-free, fun-filled adventure!
Carnival in Rio is a busy, hectic and chaotic time, which is all part of the fun; however, this means there can be long queues and delays when joining included and optional activities. The concept of personal space may also be quite different to what you’re used to at home – particularly at crowded street parties.
While one of Intrepid’s local leaders will be with you throughout the entire trip to help you understand what's unravelling in front of you, plenty of patience and flexibility will help you make the most of the Carnival experience.
