Feb 2008 Destination: Party in Salvador and

After Party in Rio or Morro

Our travel group will party like locals do, grooving in VIP lounges and trailing the authentic "electric truck blocks" in the streets of Salvador da Bahia. Picture this, live band concerts on roaming stages on top of massive trucks. Music styles go from Samba to Reggae, also including Axe and DJ/Electronica.

Our suggested “abadas”, the t-shirts that give access to parties, include the best bands and match your party style. You will also have time to hang at the beach and visit historic sights. Then for after party decompression destinations, we suggest:

Morro Bay Morro de Sao Paulo Island, just south of Salvador, has relaxing paradisiac beaches and cozy B&B. Concerts still go on if your batteries can hold. Enjoy walking tours, swimming and alluring sunsets.

Morro Bay Rio de Janeiro to enjoy gorgeous Copacabana and Ipanema beaches, visit famous landmarks like the Sugar Loaf; and watch the Samba Champions Parade on Feb 9 (Sat Night), closing the festivities.

Dates, Trip Duration & Itinerary

One can fit the trip into 1 week (Feb 2 to Feb 10), consuming just five business days of vacation. Arrive in Salvador on Feb 2 (Sat) to party for 4 nights, including Fat Tuesday with parades through Ash Wednesday's morning. Add a decompression destination for another 3 nights, starting on Feb 6 to depart on Feb 9 (Sat) and land back home on Feb 10 (Sun). And if you can add more time:

  • Settle in Salvador one day earlier (Feb 1). Be full energy for 2nd
  • If you pick Rio for decompression, stay for the Samba Champions Parade on Feb 9 (Sat Night), and fly on Feb 10
  • Combine two "decompressions": Morro for 3 nights (Feb 6 to 9), catching the Champions Parade in Rio on Feb 9 (Sat Night) and extending your stay in Rio for another few evenings.
