Rio de Janeiro is one of the most popular cities among all over the world.
And yes, Rio can be dangerous in some spots, but like most cities, a little common sense goes a long way.
And in many cases it remained that way.
Just use some common sense, some basic Portuguese, and your knowledge of the local social norms and you are guaranteed to have an amazing time with plenty of mongering.
According to the local authorities, in this zone alone there are between 50 and almost 300 more or less legal shops that have something to do with the sex industry.
The standard procedure involves coming into the front desk, checking in with a receptionist, getting a temporary locker to put your stuff in, and moving on to the area where you can meet and mingle with the girls.
Meet at a cheap beer bar, grab some dinner, hit the beach, whatever you want.
