Get Ready to Get Ready for the Biggest Party on the Planet It may still be over five months away, but Rio Carnival really is the mother of all street parties and there are still places left to experience this extravaganza with South American adventure travel experts Tucan Travel next February

LONDON, Sept. 26, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- For four days the already-lively city of Rio is transformed into a sea of sequins and brightly colored feathers on body-painted dancers moving to the infectious rhythms of samba beats and banging drums. Impromptu street parties erupt spontaneously throughout the city each night and in the daytime thousands flock to the city's famous beaches to recharge for the night ahead.

Tucan Travel has a long history of taking revellers to Rio Carnival from all over the world, with 2012 marking the 25th year of operating in the region. In that time Tucan Travel has discovered the most convenient places to stay and the best peripheral balls and parties to take travellers to, ensuring clients enjoy what is the party of a lifetime!

So big is Carnival for the company, that Tucan Travel schedules all the tours to Rio to be in the city over that weekend.

"Rio is a fabulous party for our clients. It really is like no other street party," said Tucan Travel global general manager Bec Whiffin.

"For us, it's logistically massive. There is a lot of work in coordinating all these tours, but what it means is that with everything taken care of, clients can concentrate on the serious business of partying - Carnival-style."

Along with transport and accommodation, Tucan Travel's Rio Carnival packages include the opportunity to get up close to the action at Carnival with specially allocated tickets available to enter the Sambadrome - where the competing samba schools perform to the judges and crowds - as well as inside information from our tour leaders about the best of the many periphery parties taking place in Rio that weekend.

2012 Rio Carnival takes place from Friday, February 17 to Tuesday, February 21.
