What more I got to say?
- Ipanema beach is another beach in Rio that is quite popular and being less crowded might work better for some people
- Public transport is super convenient. Just make sure you don't get off the metro is shady areas, and you'll be fine.
- Take regular touristy precautions that you would in any big city.
- Iguazu falls is another things to put on your list if you have time. We planned to save it for later.
- Yellow fever vaccination is mandatory while visiting Brazil.
- Be careful of the mosquitoes in Amazon. We didn't have many issues as we used mosquito repellents with at least 33% DEET and had all our clothes dipped in Permethrin solution.
