Hi everyone, I am a solo female traveler that has been to over 30 countries, including Columbia, Panama and Mexico. In all these countries I have rented a car and driven around after doing research into safety. For Rio,I have arranged tours to get around in the city of Rio Because I do hearThat the safety concerns are fairly high here.
However, I will be in Rio for only two days and plan to rent a car from the airport.How safe is it crime wise,For me to drive the rental car from the airport during the day, straight to Ipnema beach on the highways,And then from Ipanema Beach to Paraty. I would much rather drive then take a bus if possible. I don’t mind bad roads or aggressive drivers. I would love to hear your tips? Thank you!
