They hand out condoms, or more, throw them out at the festival like they would candy.


I kept one as a souvenir. Used the other. It broke. Always stick with American made Latex.

Just take care of yourself, keep yourself out of stupid situations lots of crazy ass stories. Have fun but I'll be damned if I haven't heard a million stories about gringos getting ripped in more ways than one

Be careful where you go, and always be alert.

Try to keep out of dark areas. Dont carry cash.

Brazil is very dangerous for Americans.

I've always wanted to go. Sounds like fun.

They had some bad luck already this year. http://www.nytimes.com/2011/02/08/world/americas/08brazil.html

I've been to Rio twice, but never during Carnival. The place is amazing, and you'll have a blast. But like others have said, keep your head on a swivel and watch out for yourself--the stories about crime, violence, prostitution are not exaggerations. I've personally never had a problem, but on one trip one of my buddies (a big dude--6'-5", 230 lbs) was attacked on Copacabana beach in broad daylight by a group of street punks. He fought them off, but the moral of the story is don't stray too far from your friends and be aware of your surroundings--especially during Carnival...

No kiddin'
With the fun and all of that, don't lose sight of where you are and your surroundings.
Rio is amongst the most violent cities in the world...
Have fun and fly low...

Not just Americans, Brazil may be the most dangerous society on earth...murder rate is 7 times what it is in the US. Brazil is more violent than Iraq.

Beat me to it. First thing that popped into my head.

It's not all of Brazil, though. The rates of HIV in Brazil are as low or lower as the ones in the US. It's just Rio. Kind of like Atalanta or Washington DC.

Going all the way to Brazil for a carnival? Give it a few months and fairs will be in full swing.

I think I heard that place closed, but if it's still open, by all means check it out. And be sure to bring about R$500...

An American at Carnival is like a duck preening on the clear surface of a pond on a still day in front of hoardes of duck hunters. Especially if you're alone.

Way to scare the possibly scare the **** out of him everyone...but yeah. I wouldn't go down there either for safety reasons.

I heard they had a big fire and the parade won't be near what it should have been this year. Be safe, stay on the big streets when walking around exploring. I would skip the flavellas all together and don't go exploring there.

Carnival is a celebration in which the locals there believe that God turns his head for 7 days, they even blindfold the statue of Christ. And ANYTHING goes

That's in Rio I'm assuming? We're going to be headed to Florianopolis after a few days in Rio - for the actually start of Carnival.

So if he gets murdered are we going to say how stupid he was for going to Brazil, or will we feel bad. :) just checking.

How about if he got super drunk, got an 8 ball of coke, snorted say a gram of it, rub the rest all over his face, strip naked, wear an American flag and run through a flavella shouting Soccer Sucks, Soccer Sucks!!!

It's almost as bad as hitchiking through turkey in a wedding dress. I will call him stupid AND be sad. Than I will laugh once the mourning passes.
