Sao Paulo Brazil downtown, heart of the Big Pineapple

by Aaron A Day on February 8, 2013

Carnival is the most famous holiday in Brazil and has become an event of huge proportions. Except the industries, malls and the carnival related workers, the country stops completely for almost a week and festivities are intense, day and night, mainly in coastal cities. The consumption of beer accounts for 80% of annual consumption and tourism receives 70% of annual visitors.

Rio de Janeiro’s carnival alone drew 4.9 million people in 2011, with 400,000 being foreigners.
