Our Expert Guide will take you to explore the vibrant neighborhood of Rocinha and its world-famous Samba School.

Rocinha is located in the south of Rio de Janeiro. It stands out for being the largest favela in Brazil, with about 100,000 inhabitants. Its streets and alleys gradually blend with the diverse fauna and flora of the lush nature that surrounds it. You will experience its cultural diversity which is simultaneously enchanting and mystical, creating a paradox amid the social shock of a slum located in the middle of a highly valued area.

We will top off our adventure by visiting the Academic Rocinha Samba School, where this community's amazing Carnival takes place. Here you'll be able to enjoy the diversity of Rocinha's natural beauty, winding streets and alleys, and energetic Samba beats.

Join us for an authentic experience in the heart of Rio's largest favela!
