Hi everyone We recently booked a two week trip to Copacabana Palace in Rio, but have been reading the Canadian Government traveller website and are concerned if we really should be even going here. It sounds really dangerous. We have travelled quite a bit in the south and the carribean but always to an allinclusive so this will be our first venture to a city and not an allinclusive. We are really worried that things are not going to go well. I know street sense and good old common sense goes a long way but is this all it takes here? Thanks for your input, you guys are a wealth of information.
