5 of the best… ADVENTURES

1. Rio Carnival - Whoever called New York ‘the city that never sleeps’ had obviously never been to Rio during Carnival. This annual festival is designed to be one big blow-out before Lent, and it takes the form of seven days of round-the-clock partying. Street parties known as ‘blocos’ break out all over the city, samba bands play their way through the streets in conga-style lines, and drag queens don size nine stilettos to walk the red carpets at the famous Scala Club balls. The highlights of the week are the dusk-til-dawn parades at the Sambadrome, where Rio’s samba schools try to out-dance each other on top of psychedelic floats. With 40-foot tall mechanical spiders, unicorns and shrimps, the whole scene is weird on a Wonderland scale. Next year, things kick off on 17th February, so start stocking up on the Pro-Plus now.

But still, it’s not often you browse a Michelin-standard menu, or polish off a meal that could have sprung from Heston Blumenthal’s lab. Until now, that is. Sensatori resorts are breaking the mould when it comes to hotel dining. In fact, they’re flaunting a clutch of restaurants worthy of a capital city address. Check these tasty morsels out for size…
