    Officially Thursday, February 11th, 2010 through Tuesday, February 16th. Then the party moves to Ressaca in Morro do Sao Paulo.

    You should probably be planning for Carnaval 2011, though, because at this very late date, it is going to be difficult to find a livable place to stay that is not inordinately far from the action or ridiculously overpriced (even for Carnaval).

    With the huge influx of tourists comes an increase in those who see them as prey. If you allow yourself to become incapacitated through drink or fatigue, you leave yourself vulnerable. In any major city in Brazil, you should remain vigilant at all times.
