The ultimate experience in Rio
Jan. 2019 • Couples
I just came back from 5 days in Rio and reviewed the highlights of my vacation there. #1 without doubt was our (wife and two friends) Saturday night visit to this samba club. Frankly the experience is impossible to describe adequately in words. I've never been anything like it. Thousands of people dancing non-stop to mind-numbing samba music hour after hour after hour. You don't have to be a dancer to enjoy this. You'll never forget it.

Warning! The building is in the shanty-town neighbourhood of Mangueira and can be quite unnerving when you get there. Don't be put off. We had no problems. The per person ticket price was 40 Reals, with another 60 Reals for a table if you really want one. It's about 15 minute walk from the Maracanã subway station through some 'scary' streets. Best way is to take Uber directly form your hotel.

The best samba school ever! "A melhor escola de samba do planeta!"
Dec. 2017 • Friends
Mangueira is o e of the first samba schools of Rio de Janeiro. The components of Mangueira are friendly, nice people, the musicians of the Bateria are awesome. They have rehearsels every Saturday night (from August to February) among other events.
It is easy to go there by taxi. There are a taxi stop in front of the main entrance. One can experience the lively comunity before and after visiting the show.
If you want to see how the people from Rio enjoy their lives with no money, but a lot of fun, go to Mangueira!

Samba night : Feel the spirit of Rio at the Escola do Samba Mangueira
Feb. 2017 • Friends
As I was in Rio de Janeiro during Carnival period, some of my Carioca Friends suggested the Idea and I went to the last rehearsal before the Carnival Parade.
I had the time of my life and experienced this feeling called "Saudade". The space was filled with it. Everyone was dancing to the Samba rhythm. Happy faces around me! That was a magic moment. I highly recommend this activity. It lasted all night but was worth it.
It is very safe and people are amazing, so don't hesitate to take your phone or camera to click pictures! The costumes are extremely beautiful!

Electrifying!!
Jan. 2015 • Couples
We visited in January, while the school was preparing for the carnival, so it was great! A HUGE party, people dancing, lots of fun!
The only thing was, everybody was smoking and it was hard to breathe, but otherwise a wonderful way to see the locals party!
Be careful outside thou!

Fun Safe Samba School & Great Party in Rio: Escola Mangueira
Dec. 2014 • Friends
Looking for a great fun night in the real Rio? This samba school is a short cab ride from the hotels in Ipanema and Copacabana. Safe, you get dropped off right in front of the school, buy your tickets, and get in! Inside, everyone is having a good time, very welcoming, amazing artists: singers, dancers, etc. and great music, you will be dancing samba in no time! When you are done, late into the morning hours, there are plenty of cabs to take back to your hotels. Fun!
