How Safe is Rio De Janeiro | Travel Vlog

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil is one of the world's most beautiful cities, but economic trouble and crime have given it a bad rap recently. With the help of some friends, we travel to Rio to experience this beautiful city for ourselves. From Copacabana, to a soccer game in Botafogo, our friends made sure we had an authentic Brazilian experience despite the wet weather.

This is a video for people who want to know if Rio is safe to visit in 2019 or even 2020. This video from Copacabana beach was filmed in September 2019 in regards to safety in Rio De Janeiro Brazil.

Island Hopper TV is a travel resource for adventure seekers looking to discover many destinations across the planet. Having been encouraged to explore the world outside of the United States I have traveled many places solo and through Island Hopper TV I share the experience.

Copacabana Rio De Janeiro at night | Is it Dangerous walking around?

So I walked around Rio De Janeiro filming everything. Basically my entire trip. I have endless amounts of random footage. How dangerous is Copacabana walking around at night filming? Find out for your self with a first-person view of me walking around.

Before I went to Brazil, I saw a lot of videos and heard a lot of people saying how dangerous it was. How the phone and camera snatchers are out lurking. I walked around Copacabana at 2-3 and 4 am at night and had no issues. Everyone can definitely have a different experience than me. Let me know what you think in the comment section below.

I've had a love affair with Rio de Janeiro for as long as I can remember. Or as Brazilians would say 'desde que eu me entendo por gente' :P

Most Capeverdeans grow up watching Brazilian novelas where our fascination with the country and the marvelous city begins. I had high expectations of Rio de Janeiro but even then the city managed to blow me away and each time I visit I fall more in love. The friendly people, good climate, delicious food, many cool activities and the beautiful landscapes make this destination incredible and has something to offer to every traveller.

I haven't met anyone who travels to Rio and doesn't instantly fall in love. There's a magic about this place that needs to be experienced and once you get a taste of it you're hooked! Next time I go I would love to visit Salvador, Fernando Noronho, Floreonopolis, Alto Paraiso and the Amazon.

Brazil is a beautiful country and holds a magic that everybody feels when visiting. Can you tell how much I love this place?? :D

HOW TO STAY SAFE IN BRAZIL – in today’s episode, I talk about Brazil and staying safe when travelling in South America’s beautiful country. A couple of weeks before posting this video, a British family were on holiday in Rio de Janeiro and took a wrong turn into a favela with their hire car. They were shot at and the women in the passenger seat was injured. It’s very important to be alert while here in Brazil and take a few common-sense safety precautions…

Is Solo Female Travel Safe In Rio? | Story Time | Covid Travel 2021

In this video, I share some scary tales about my time in Rio in May 2021.

Check out the blog for more info:

Here is a preview: When I told my family and friends that I was traveling to Rio, they were excited for me.

When I told them that I was traveling to Rio solo, that excitement turned into fear. I don’t blame their hesitations. Everything I read online described Rio as a dangerous place. A place full of theft and cheap plastic surgery.

Now that I’ve visited this amazing city, I wanted to share my experiences.

Are these notions about the safety of Rio just misconceptions? Or are they spot on? I’ll let you be the judge.

In this video I travel to an incredible waterfall in Brazil. I also give some travel tips, and just my personal opinions about traveling alone in Brazil.

Travel Story Time | Almost Taken in Brazil

Have you ever had a misunderstanding while traveling? Or are you afraid of traveling solo because of the thought of being taken? Well tune in to this travel story time! Today, I'm telling you a story about when I was left at a mall in Porte Alegre and screwed over by a taxi driver! For a moment, in my mind I was wondering where the taxi driver was going which leads to why I believe I was almost taken in Brazil!

Please Note: This can happen ANYWHERE...not just in Brazil!
