    Rio is getting better every day, because the local authorities are doing everything to prepare the city for the Olimpic Games and the World Cup.
    Of course, you have to avoid some places, and i don't advice you to walk through the streets showing a video camera and another expensive stuff, i mean, you have to take care of yourself as in any big city in the world. You can use all of it, but with care.
    Therefore, enjoy your trip, because Rio is a very pretty city. over 8 years ago

    It's fine, but be smart, and don't go walking on empty streets at night... Use taxi, go to nice places. over 8 years ago

    Hashim, I second the answers from the other Nomads. Petty crime is a problem, so take the usual precautions.... especially about not flashing jewellery and valuables. keep the camera in a pocket or bag until you need to take a shot rather than hang it from your neck.
    On worldnomads.com we have some great tips on staying afe in Rio http://journals.worldnomads.com/safetyhub/story/69440/Brazil/Staying-Safe-in-Rio
    with links to other articles. For instance: the numbered lifeguard towers (postos) on Ipanema serve a secondary function as well, dividing the beach into demographics, The surfers congregate near Arpoador at Posto 7, the young and the beautiful head to Posto 9, family groups dominate Posto 11 in Leblon, while the area between Posto 8 and 9 is a famously gay-friendly zone.
