Safety and security

As in any city you should be sensible and streetwise to ensure a trouble-free visit. Avoid taking valuables or carrying large amounts of cash with you and make use of hotel safes. Be aware of your bags when you’re out, and your pocket, as pick pocketing still occurs. Watch the street kids in Rio de Janeiro in particular, they’re cute and look innocent but they’re some of the most elusive pick pocketers.

If you’re single you’re likely to hook up at one of the clubs – but beware of taking anyone back to your hotel, it is the easiest way to become a victim of theft or violence. And of course, don’t leave your drink unattended!

I've heard from the Lonely Planet Brazil travel guide that cities like Rio De Janeiro and Sao Paulo are crime ridden cities. Based on your experiences (if you have been to Brazil), what can you say about this issue? How do you survive those bad hangovers criminals give you? Any suggestions? Thanks!
