Download "OTT - Onde Tem Tiroteio" app. It will alert you every time there is a shooting in Rio (we have ~20/day). Usually staying in the south zone (e.g. Leblon, Ipanema, Lagoa, Jardim Botânico) of Rio is a good practice both for safety as for things to do. Uber is better and cheaper than taxi and works pretty well. Beware of pick pocketing. Avoid walking alone at night. Try to become friends with a local "carioca" - it can be more helpful than you can imagine.

Whoa! Scare the poor guy why don’t you. Op will be fine. Just stay in populated areas and keep your guard up. 10 days is an awe full long time for rio though. Consider going to one of the islands or buzios for a couple days.

Was in Rio last year for carnival- would recommend staying in a hostel and booking soon since the good ones fill up fast (really easy way to meet people to party with) and you can usually buy parade tickets at the hostel. We bought them ahead of time but the tickets are section specific so you might be better off meeting people there and buying tickets in the same section. We were there for 8 days and spent about 4ish days partying, 3 days sightseeing, and a day relaxing on the beach (highly recommend the Sheraton Rio for this) Also recommend traveling light and bringing clothes you don’t really care about as it is really hot and carnival is pretty grungy. Most people tho are fullyyy decked out in bright colors and ridiculous outfits haha. Also bring a money belt and keep your phone and cash on your body at all times. Pickpocketing is pretty bad and you dont want to be an easy target

PTO during march? must be nice

Ac1 - would you mind sharing your burner? Will mail you for further input. Any hostels you recommend? Is it cheaper / same price to buy parade tickets the same week?

Sure - fishb111226@gmail.com
