All the glitz and glitter, delicious succulent food, beautiful costumes and exotic atmosphere–the Brazilian Carnival is the center to countless celebrations around the world from Italy to New Orleans. Now, we have our own slice of fiesta right here in San Diego. If you want the ultimate summer experience in San Diego, go to the Brazilian Carnival at the Bahia Resort Hotel.
From the moment you cross the bamboo threshold, Brazil greets you: a private beach surrounded by tiki torches and in the shadow of the magnificent Bahia Belle. Food lines the sides: roasted meats, seafoods, salads, exotic drinks and tropical fruits suit every pallet. We loved the communal table setting because it was ripe for lively conversations.
Entertainment comes in all forms. My favorite part was the exotic animal wranglers from an American alligator to a giant python; Pia’s favorite part was the amazing performances that made you want to take up Brazilian dance.
Music filled the air the whole evening but after dinner, the show really kicked into high gear. All the dancing, martial arts and musical performances showcased the rich culture of a country renowned for it’s party spirit, with lots of feathered and bejeweled outfits that would do Liberace proud! It was an amazing fiesta and we had such a ball. Plus, there were plenty of opportunities for a unique selfie with the costumed cuties, animals, environment (the sunset and beach location was awesome), and of course, signs (like our shot?).
If you want to get away to a truly festive slice of vacation, wander over to the Brazilian Carnival at the Bahia Resort Hotel for a night in the tropics.
