"Security" Brazil Warnings Or Dangers Tip by skullcrusher

Brazil Warnings and Dangers: 97 reviews and 53 photos

Brazil gets a bad rap for crime and being dangerous. Personally, I've never found it any more threatening than your average large city in the USA. Truthfully, when you're in a foreign land a little common sense goes a long way (a quality that seems to be lacking with many tourists. Obviously I wouldn't wander into the favelas (read: ghettos) if I were you.
