Have you ever been to Rios carnival?

What was it like? Best bits? Good/bad experiences? How far in advance did you have to book? Was it expensive?

I have been to Rio De Janeiro five times as well! Rio Carnaval is the greatest show on earth. I would definitely recommend you visit this city and go for Rio Carnaval. The official language in Brazil is Portuguese so I would brush up on that language before you go. Don't worry, it is not necessary for you to be fluent to have a good time, but if you some some basic stuff before hand, that would help.
