"Carnaval Scam!" Carnaval Tip by elchegordo
Carnaval, Rio de Janeiro: 58 reviews and 88 photos
Don't buy tickets online or with your travel agent! Tickets are way over priced. For 2006 carnaval an online website was asking $140 us for a ticket to sector 4. When i got to rio, the hotel was asking $170 reais (80-95 dls). i went to the sambodromo and found cambistas (scalpers) and ended up paying $70 reais (30-35 dls) for the same ticket. Don't let the travel agencies and the news scare you!. Go there, be careful and enjoy carnaval at a good price with the locals. it's very safe, sector 4 was full of brazilian local people and was very safe. Many of them had their cameras and videocameras with them.
Have fun!, Sambodromo is a must do and is awesome!
