  Ponta Negra Beachfront Sidewalk has beggars
by madvex

The Ponta Negra beach strip area has alot of beggars who are there ALL the time. They will ask you for some cash every time they see you. Some are very persistent and will follow you for blocks if you refuse to give them any money.

We found none to be dangerous and some of the kids are actually decent and honest and will help you by getting you change, cigarrettes, a taxi, etc. for a few R$.

Be careful of the heads and rastas in this area, I heard from many locals that if they find you alone they are the most dangerous around.

We had no troubles with anyone.. even walking around at 4am proved no problem in ponta negra. Just stay alert and be careful as you would in any foreign setting.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
