Safe around Lagoa?

2 Replies

hey all,  The other day I overheard a conversation at the bank where a woman said her bicycle got stolen while riding around the lagoa... I thought this was a safe place to be, but now I'm not sosure anymore. Anyone here had any bad experience around there?

Hi Marlene,

I guess there are no guarantees anywhere in Rio. I have been riding around the lagoa many times and never any problems, but i already heard many stories about people getting robbed. 

The best thing to do is not to let those stories scare you too much and keep you from going out and having a good time. Those things happen in any big city. Rio has 11 million people, so the chance of you being the one getting robbed is relatively small.

hope this helps.

Merry Christmas

If you talk to enough people it is amazing how many have a story about being the victim of an assault.

And it is not only in the notorious neighborhoods either... it can happen anywhere. Wrong place, wrong time...
