I spent 10 days in Rio solo a few months ago and fell completely in love with that city. One of the top places I’ve visited and I never felt very scared or fear for my own safety, but I did follow all those common safety rules. Brazilians are some of the most friendly and joyful people I’ve met.Posted: May 31, 2023

Rio is such an amazing city! But can get very unsafe, even in Copacabana. We went for carnival and had such an amazing time.Posted: May 1, 2023
I was in Rio with my friend for like 11 days and we never experienced anything dodgy at all. We stayed in Copacabana and did our own tours. We used Uber and all were fine except not everyone speaks English but not a big problem as we were translating basic Portuguese using google. It was one of the best places I've been and if there's a chance I will definitely go back.Posted: April 23, 2023
I went for Carnaval and loved it. I stayed in the tourist areas and felt reasonably safe the whole time I was there. It can be pretty cheap or as expensive as you want to make it. I also really enjoyed the free walking tour in the city center.Posted: April 23, 2023
I did sense some sketchiness in downtown or when I'm walking home after dinner. Other than that, I felt completely safe. The Brazilian people are so friendly and hospitable - they totally made my experience worthwhile.Posted: April 23, 2023
My favourite city in the world! You can hike and see the native animals and breathtaking views in the morning, go to a beach and see the sunset in the afternoon and then hit the amazing bars which offer a taste of Brazil’s awesome Cousine and music. Recommend staying in Zona Sul (specially Copacabana) as it is closer to most interesting locations and quite safe.Posted: April 18, 2023
I was in Rio solo over Christmas and loved every second of it. I stayed in Leblon, did a samba class/club tour to Lapa, and did a million other things that made it my favorite trip to date.Posted: April 9, 2023
Rio de Janeiro was the first place I ever traveled to alone when I was 18. I went for 3 months and granted I was young and probably naive then but honestly, I felt safe and didn’t get anything stolen and I was even volunteering in the favelas.Posted: April 1, 2023
I lived there for years and loved it. Lots to see but like in any place be street smart, carry local currently in small amounts, avoid jewerly and expensive equipment showing off, be aware of your surroundings. Enjoy the beaches, if possible get off the beaten path, check Barra da Tijuca Beach, walk on the sidewalk in Copacabana, enjoy sunsets in Leblon or Arpoador, check the Lagoa Rodrigo de Freitas, the Botanical Garden, the Redeemer, Sugar Loaf, if you can visit the Lake Region (Buzios, Arraial do Cabo), also worth visiting Angra dos Reis, Parati, e de mountains Teresopolis to see a God's Finger Mountain, Petropolis visit the Imperial Museum, Nova Friburgo. Feast on the traditional Rodizio BBQ, the Feijoada, Romeo and Juliet desert, Flan, Peixada and caipirinha.Posted: November 28, 2022
