Parades/ balls- which to go to??
My friend and I are going to be in Rio for Carnaval and I was just hoping you could maybe give us some tips on which parades and balls are worth taking a look at?
We have heard that you can buy tickets easily and cheaply on the street-- is this true? Is it worth taking the risk? We are thinking of going to the Ibiza ball and the Sambadromo show on the 15th.
We have heard that these shows are popular, so we want to make sure we can get tickets. But at the same time, if we can save some money by buying tickets in Rio, maybe that would be the way to go?
Any advice you have is much appreciated!
