"General Safety" Rio de Janeiro Warnings Or Dangers Tip by bodegabop

Rio de Janeiro Warnings and Dangers: 222 reviews and 107 photos

I stayed in Ipenema and i never felt threatened at all. Just treat Rio as you would anywhere else and take the same precautions you would in any major city, namely dont flash around money or expensive cameras etc. By all means take photos, just be discreet. Also if you are at the beach , make sure you dont leave belongings on thier own as there is a liklihood they will be pinched. If you are travelling alone and fancy a dip, just ask the person next to you to keep an eye on your stuff. Most people are very obliging and helpful.
