    Copacabana
    The rowdy Copacabana is one of the most
    traditional and old areas from Rio de
    Janeiro. This neighbourhood is a blend of
    Brazilian soul - crowded, rowdy and
    traditional. This neighbourhood has a bit
    of everything: bars with music, pubs,
    street fairs, chaotic streets, and many
    shops. All these things and more live

    Hi! I have a room booked with you for myself and 2 friends over carnival week and am looking to book carnival tickets for the Sunday. On the website it appears the tickets can't be delivered outside of Brazil. Are we able to get them delivered to the hostel so we can collect them from you when we arrive? Kind regards Emma
