Going to Brazil...
I’m looking to go to Brazil (from the UK) in 2011. Many people have said to go to Rio for the carnival (March 5th – March 8th). Just seeing if anyone has any advice/ opinions on what dates are good to go over, where are some good places to stay, hang out, maybe watch some fights etc.
I've also heard a couple of people say carnival is comparatively super expensive and can be overly rammed.
All opinions greatly appreciated.
