Day 3 (Mon Mar 4) –Sambadrome parade

Enjoy a rest day after the high energy of the Sambadrome. Sunbathe and relax on the world-famous beaches of Copacabana and Ipanema, play some beach volleyball and football with the locals, and sip a caipirinha or three.

In the evening, head to the premier night club Scala, for their famous Gay Ball, a grand celebration and an integral part of any Rio Carnival experience.
