          Hi! I have a room booked with you for myself and 2 friends over carnival week and am looking to book carnival tickets for the Sunday. On the website it appears the tickets can't be delivered outside of Brazil. Are we able to get them delivered to the hostel so we can collect them from you when we arrive? Kind regards Emma
