I am looking for some advice. My husband and I and another couple are planning to attend Carnival in 2014 in Salvador and/or Olinda. We were at Carnival in Rio about 10 years ago and loved it. But looking at the photos from Salvador Carnival, everyone seems to be no older than 30. We are all in our sixties and are wondering what would be the best way to participate in Carnival in Salvador.
Are there some camarotes with a more ‘mixed age’ crowd? How about the blocos? It also seems that the festivities in Pelourinho might be attractive to us. Thoughts?
Also, what are the relative merits of Carnival in Salvador vs. Recife/Olinda?
Thanks in advance for any advice!
