Think Brazil and you think Carnival, this tradition amongst many others is what has made this country both famous and loved throughout the world and the passion that the people of this country have for these events is truly breath taking.

There are many famous carnivals held throughout this beautiful country all of which are similar in their themes and design but none are more famous than the ones held in Rio de Janeiro, these carnivals are a good benchmark for what is to be found at the rest of the events held around the country.

Scores of spectacular floats surrounded by thousands and thousands of dancers, singers and drummers parade through the streets dressed in elaborate costumes (or, quite often, with absolutely no costume at all.) It is an epic event televised around the world and enjoyed by thousands of carnival hungry tourists every year.

All of the carnivals held in this country are spectacular events that will leave you with wonderful memories that will last a lifetime.
