RIo is a safe place do not get deceived by paranoids!!! May 25, 2011
Hello everyone,

i just wanted to take a simple note for those who wants to travel Rio de Janeiro. I read and heard many 'be carefuls' about the city before I visited and felt kind of 'uncomfortable' when I went there. However, I noticed that there was nothing to be afraid of. The city, especially the areas that you would be interested to visit (such as Copacabana, Ipanema, Lapa, Statue of Christ, Centro) have bunch of polices and make you feel safe. By the way, Brazilians are the friendliest people in the world so carrying a English- Portuguese conversation book would help you a lot to feel that sincerity from Rio.

Yes, they are among some of the friendliest people, but I was walking with a bag of leftover food and a homeless man asked me for my food and before I even said yes and handed it to him, he was reaching for it.

To start with - Ipanema is better beach than Copacabana. Ipanema has higher waves though so be very very cautious.

Beware of pickpockets and crime, dont wonder too much away from your group or 3 parallel lanes away from beach, or else be prepared to be mugged.

Hotel Ceaser Park is one of the finest accomodations in the city (personally I prefer it over the grand copacabana palace. Its very pricey - but extremely safe, and has a private beach with security patrolling.

If you are travelling on a budget, stay on Copacabana side, because it has more tourists and locals around you.

Dont miss the Sugarloaf mountain cable car ride, and the famous vernacular train ride atop the mountain that holds the most colorful and amazing but infamous "favelas".

A world travel cannot complete unless you have been to Rio!
