    Carnival in Brazil is the same time as in New Orleans, Quebec and Cologne (the days leading up to Ash Wednesday and the beginning of Lent). The dates shown are for Mardi Gras (Fat Tuesday). Please remember that in Rio the biggest nights of Carnival are the Saturday and Sunday nights before Fat Tuesday, when the big name samba schools begin their parades in the evening and keep going until dawn, on both nights. Monday and Tuesday are less hectic than in New Orleans.

    Easter is another date to keep in mind when traveling to Latin countries. Holy Week, preceding Easter, is usually a school holiday and peak travel week, with jammed hotels, planes and highways, and higher hotel rates.
