I am a runner, can I run each morning? Is it safe?
Yes it is safe, but please try to avoid wearing or showing valuable items.
We also suggest talking to the pack leader or hotel reception about the best places to go, to avoid bad neighbourhoods, and of course letting someone else know your route. Try to take a mobile phone in case you get lost.
Is it safe to travel in Rio?
In Rio, as in any other big city in the world, there is theft and robbery. It is suggested not to go out with a lot of cash, jewellery or valuables.
The most common methods of theft are snatching your day pack, cell phone or camera, pickpocketing or taking advantage of a moment’s inattention to pick up your belongings and run away.
So keep your belongings safe, don't leave them unattended and be aware even if you sitting in a cafe or taking a rest. Only bringing the essentials out of your hotel room and never show large amounts of money in public.
