Carnival 2005 Salvador
I am keen to go to Salvador for the carnival period (04-09feb).
It seems there is not a big problem flying into brazil around carnival time.
I am flying into to Sao Paulo and was going to fly or catch the dreaded 34 hour bus journey up north to Salvador.
The only problem I have is finding some accommodation (cheap) in Salvador.
Any suggestions ?
I haven't looked into Rio as the brazilians I have talked to said Salvador is the place to be for Carnival.
Did you ever find cheaper accomodations? I can't find any either. I am probly flying into Sao Paolo and then getting a flight straight to Salvador. have you found cheap flights for that leg? Any info would be much appreciated!
The other option is to buy a Varig airpass. It would allow you stops in 4 or more cities in the Northeast starting at $419.
I agree that all flights to Brazil are overpriced compared to say Asia, where you can always find bargains.
Try some consolidators first before you do the bus deal. The bus would be really ok if it was not your first time in Brasil, and if you knew the language etc. Even so, You'll be fine on the bus, but you won't enjoy it near as much, and it will eat up valuable vacation time.
