1. Re: Buzios durning Carnaval

We were in Buzios last year during the week before and the weekend of Carnival. We left just as Carvnival got into full swing, unfortunately.

There were parardes on Rua das Piedras, the main drag, during Carnival and a few on the nights leading up to Carnvial. Band, costumes and dancers. It was very nice. The hotels also had some bands and other Carnival related events.

One obvious difference during Carnival were the crowds. I was told the highway from Rio to Buzios on that Friday before Carnival can be bumper to bumper. The difference in only a couple of days was very large. Where before some beaches were half full, at most, by Carnival they were packed, and prices for beach chairs and the like went up, but were all still very reasonable.

Buzios is terrific, you'll have a great time. If you are in Rio first do your shopping there, most items are a bit cheaper. However, many upscale stores have locations both in Rio and Buzios, like Bum Bum. Also, make sure you get to Playa Geriba. Outstanding.
