"Is it for real?" Copacabana Warnings Or Dangers Tip by Assenczo

Copacabana Warnings and Dangers: 7 reviews and 3 photos

Everybody seems to be scared ***less from the presence of countless pickpockets during the Independence Day festivities. Shop owners and hotel owners are singing this powerful unison about the foreigners from Peru coming over here under the guise of pilgrims and robbing the careless gringos and the hard-working Copacabana citizens. Nothing happened to me but being so well informed, I probably looked too tense for any crook to try his luck on me. The same preliminary scares I had received in Rio, Lima and La Paz with no danger in sight. True, the police are numerous and not far between which can be a significant deterrent.
