Mensagem:  Rio de Janeiro is a dangerous place. You can still go to to the beach during day light and nothing will happen. Just don't have any jewelry showing, watches, and leave your passport at the hotel. Pickpockets are everywhere in Rio. Women with those big, flashy earrings have been victimized by muggers who will come running by and pull out their earrings. My sister-in-law lost her CD player in Rio. She is from southern Brazil and was just visiting Rio and decided to take along her imported CD player while touring Rio - she had to see her CD player go... at day-light ... not for her delight... If you ever go to Rio don't dare to go up the slums and don't take the wrong turn ... it's safer to be in a taxi because those drivers really know where they are going. Rio is a world apart itself. I would recommend Santa Catarina and its beaches - Go to Florianopolis and visit the "lagoas" and "praias" close by. Then go to Rio Grande do Sul and visit Gramado, and on the way back you could visit Curitiba and then São Paulo. Do whatever you do make sure you don't make it easy for muggers and pickpockets. And remember people in Brazil are nice. Mark
