Fly to the best Carnival Celebrations on the planet.
By Florin R. Ferrs
Wherever you prefer to get your samba on in Rio de Janeiro’s wild Carnival, or parade around in Venetian masks for Venice’s Carnivale, this is the time of year where people around the world take to the streets and party. Travelers flock from around the planet to strut their stuff alongside colourful floats, sequined scantily clad dancers, masks, costumes, and gallons of beer, wine or caipirinhas. Carnival is perhaps the best time of the year to visit a particular destination and have an unforgettable experience hanging out with the locals during their favourite time of the year. Samba!
Top 4 International Carnival destinations
1-Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
Rio residents spend most of the year preparing for carnival. Entire favelas join samba schools to rehearse and prepare costumes and floats. It all begins with the election of a jovial “King Momo”, the official master of ceremonies of the Rio Carnival. Then, it’s party time at the Sambadrome, a huge stadium purposely built for viewing the colourful floats and joining in with the hip-shaking samba revellers. Head off to Copacabana for a swim and a caipirinha, or two to cap off your Brazilian Carnival experience.
Find out for yourself why Rio’s Carnival is perhaps the most spectacular in the world with vayama’s discounted airfare to Rio de Janeiro.
Venice’s Carnivale has ancient roots, with many an aspiring Don Juan joining in on the festivities behind the cover of Venice’s elaborate carnival masks. Many peccadilloes have passed with these masks over the centuries, and the tradition lives on.

3- Port of Spain, Trinidad
Trinidad’s carnival is perhaps the most colourful and most famous carnival of the Caribbean. Port of Spain’s heady ethnic mix makes it even more exotic, with spicy curries fuelling the sequined dancers as they swerve to the rhythm of steel drums. Join in with the locals and Calypso dance behind colourful floats, then recuperate on the beaches of Trinidad’s sister island, Tobago.

While not as famous as its Brazilian cousin, Panama’s carnival is one of the biggest in the world. The whole country gets into party mode for over a week, culminating in a huge party and parade along Panama City’s old town for Fat Tuesday, or Martes de Carnaval. Panama also offers pristine jungles, tropical islands of shore and the modern marvel of the Panama Canal.
