Goway to Immerse Globetrotters in Rio's Rhythm for Carnaval


Goway’s new Rio Carnaval Like a Local is the ultimate way to experience the world’s biggest party.


As legions of snowbirds fly south for the winter, more travelers are choosing to leave the beach resorts behind, instead immersing themselves in the culture, color and fun of their destinations.

Culture, color and fun are the hallmarks of Rio de Janeiro’s famous Carnaval. Right now, the Latin America experts at Goway Travel are offering globetrotters a chance to experience this iconic festival through the eyes of a real Rio Samba school, including the once-in-a-lifetime chance to dance in the Sambadrome parade.

Goway’s Rio Carnaval Like a Local includes all the highlights of a Rio de Janeiro vacation. It also goes one step beyond the typical Carnaval package tour. Globetrotters will be flown to Rio for a 6-day adventure, staying at the luxurious Copacabana Palace Hotel. Private transportation ensures comfortable and hassle-free sightseeing, including visits to Corcovado (home to Christ the Redeemer) and Sugar Loaf Mountain. They will also see the grittier side of Rio on a favela tour, with plenty of spare time to explore Rio’s famous beaches, and experience the party atmosphere so unique to Carnaval.

The highlight however, comes after dark. Guests will spend one night in the stands of the Sambadrome, enjoying all the parade’s color and madness from afar. The following day, they’ll visit a local Samba school for an inside look at the immense preparation that goes into this event. Carnaval is one of the most prestigious nights on the Brazilian calendar, so turning on the glamour for the world’s biggest party is serious business! The payoff however is magnificent. Globetrotters will have a unique opportunity to join the party that night at the Sambadrome, dancing right alongside new friends made at the school.

Most importantly, the costume is theirs to keep!

This Goway exclusive departs on February 12, 2015. Prices start at just US$4896 per person, including flights from New York, or CA$5233 per person departing Toronto.

For globetrotters not feeling Brazil’s rhythm, Latin America by Goway is offering significant discounts on two other, very different styles of luxury trip. Passengers who book by November 15 can save up to 25% on a variety of Antarctic cruises. Those who prefer to roam on land can save 10% on their Chile vacation, staying at a select range of luxury lodges. This offer is available until September 30, and applies to a range of Tierra properties, set amid spectacular landscapes including Atacama and Patagonia.
