Traveling Rio for Carnival 2014 Solo!

Hey I'm from New Zealand traveling to Rio alone for carnival. Hoping there are others on here traveling around the same time that are interested in exchanging Facebooks and doing some adventureous tours etc and to party with during carnival. Would be great to link up with like minded people.

If you're traveling alone to Rio de Janeiro, consider staying at a nice hostel in Ipanema or Leblon, two of the safest neighborhoods in Rio. A hostel is a great place to meet like-minded singles.

Have a look at the links below and read the reviews to see if any of them might suit your budget and your needs. Look for the ones with a rating of 85% and above.

Ashlee, I definitely think you should create an account on Couch Surfing, which is originally designed for travelers looking for a place to stay, but it's also a very active community where you can basically post you're coming to Rio and lot's of other travelers (and locals) will be eagering to talk to you. It works better than FB for that matter and I've used it myself when traveling. All the best

Hi! Lucky you!!!!!

I´m also travelling to Brazil sola! I´m so excited but i am a bit nervous too! I´ll arrive on the 18th of December - in Rio - I´m thinking of getting a flight to Manaus and then making my way all the way back down to Rio! I need to start a thread - I have millions of questions I need answering!

My flight out is on February 18th, however, depending on how things go I´d like to stay for carnival and get a bus back home to Chile, through Paraguay and Argentina!

I´m worried about MONEY! I´m sure the South´ll be less expensive but Rio at carnival! I haven´t booked a hostel or anything and I´m wondering if it´s going to be too expensive.

It would be nice to chat! Where will you be staying? What are your plans?

HI Guevona.

Rio is VERY expensive in Carnival, I'd say accommodation is 5x more expensive than in the rest of the year.

It's too hard to find a hostel less than 80u$/day and many of them are sold out.

Hello, I'm making the venture down to Rio Feb 26-March 5 with 3 girl friends from the U.S.

We have a vacation rental in Copa. We'd love to meet some friends before we go! We're still debating on tours but I know that some will be shut down during the Carnaval holiday
