Favela (which is a Brazilian -Portuguese word for "slum") is the name given to the very poor areas of Rio. The favelas are neighbourhoods with poorly-made homes that have usually been built by the people living in them.  Although favelas are racially mixed , the majority were created when black slaves were given their freedom in 1888, but, had no jobs or homes to goto. It's impossible to drive a car into most favelas because the streets are  very narrow. In these alleys, crime rates are very high because of the gang culture that exists there.

Safety Tips:

If you are travelling to Rio:

  • always be aware of where you are and what's going on around you.
  • Don't go into favelas.
  • Don't flash your money or credit cards around.
  • Leave expensive jewellery at home.

  • And, if you can afford it, get a driver to show you around.
If you are a smart traveller , Rio is a fantastic destination.

Hi Tom,.

I'm having a fantastic time in Rio. The people are really friendly. Carnival is so crazy! The costumes are fantastic and everybody's out on the streets , dancing day and night! I'm exhausted  
 and there are still 2 more days of it! The sound of samba music is non-stop. The atmosphere is electric -I really can't describe it! Haven't done any sightseeing yet and, to be honest, I don't think I will!
