Rio Carnival Package

Overview

Rio Carnival has become world-famous through the Samba Parade, a show, a competition and an incredible display put on by the Brazilian samba dance schools. Carnival, the famous Brazilian festival, will take place between the 01st March and 10th March 2019 (Brazilian summer). During the festival there is a huge contest among the samba schools. These samba communities all have their own distinguishing, colourful, costumes and will parade at the "Sambodromo" where people can either watch from the grandstands or, if planned well enough ahead, even dress up and participate in the parade themselves. This festival has become known as one of the greatest parties in the world. Each samba school's parade takes around 90 minutes and there is only one winner. Each night the parade starts around 8:00 PM and continues until 6:00 AM the next morning. On this itinerary Chimu will take you to the heart of this spectacular event, choose this suggested package or ask us and we’ll tailor it to suit your style.

Sustainability

Chimu Adventures undertakes a number of sustainability measures within its operations including:
 
1) Only using local guides and office staff to both maximise local employment opportunities and minimise carbon footprints. Local guides also ensure you benefit from the intimate knowledge, passion and culture of the country you’re visiting.
 
2) Where possible, using locally owned and operated boutique hotels to maximise the return to the local community.
 
3) Chimu’s “Pass it on” programme has provided funding to hundreds of local community projects in Latin America. Our aim is to empower local communities, helping them to develop their own infrastructure for the future. Since 2006, we have been working with Kiva (a well-known Non-Governmental Organisation), providing hundreds of loans to local businesses all over South America. 
4) In our pre tour information we provide a range of tips and advice on how to minimise your impact on both local environments and communities.
 
5) Chimu Adventures’ offices also take a number of sustainability measures including carbon offsets for company vehicles and most staff travel. Chimu Adventure’s internal processes are also structures to create a paperless office and to reduce waste. There are also internal programmes to help staff minimise their carbon footprint such as our staff bike purchase assistance plan which encourages office staff to commute to work via bicycle. Currently almost half of our office based staff commute to work via bicycle.
