So I am going to Rio de Janeiro to study abroad this coming spring and I was considering going early to experience Carnaval. I am a girl and would be going all alone does any one have any advice? Is it a crazy idea? If not, any reccomendations for good shows and accomodations? Hope to hear soon and cheeers!

I think it's a great idea! If you are feeling uneasy about going alone, why not meet up with someone in a hostel or on Couchsurfing and go with them?

There's a few hostels there that are very sociable. I worked in 'Stone of a Beach' in Copacabana for 5 months, and you'll meet LOADS of sole travellers there! Don't miss it - I'm so jealous as I wasn't there for Carnaval....but hope to be one day!!
