We went during and post Carnival. During Carnival it becomes a sea of male swimsuit models, with bodies that most people couldn't dream of achieving! Amazing buzz and people having a fantastic time. Post Carnival was a little less chaotic and "normal" bodied people make an appearance. A lot more relaxing if you just wanting to soak up some rays and top up your tan. However, if your male and slightly body conscious, Ipanema may not be the best choice. Overall an amazing experience and would go back time and time again!
