Most of the people came here to watch samba show. First of all you could confirm your ticket. They will provide two options for the spectators. One is exotic samba show with dinner and another one is only samba show.
Duration of first option is 5 hours and second one is 3 hours. They will take you a restaurant and served you delicious dinner with grilled meat. You could bring drinks before entering the party.
