Security? Answer
Answer:
Is it dangerous to travel to Brazil? There's no easy answer!
 
Democracy has brought forward many changes. In places where a city regards tourism as serious business, policing has been heightened dramatically.
 
Ten years ago, group tourism to Brazil, in a manner similar to European tourism, did not exist.
 
Brazil is changing rapidly, however. It is unwise anywhere to leave valuables lying around or flaunt one's wealth, and the traveler generally does not venture far from the main stay (just as you would avoid certain parts of large U.S. cities.) Brazil can now be regarded as no less "safe" than any region where rich and poor meet. Just be discreet!
 
Brazil is two countries that co-exist in the same geographical space:
 
On one hand, Brazil is a highly industrialized country, 9th in the world. Brazil is exporting technology to Japan with its mobile phone-hungry population, its economy is driven by the internet and in the cities, Brazilians get stuck in traffic in their large, snug SUVs on eight lane freeways.
 
On the other hand, a lot of people have to survive on less than 100 USD per month. This is the third world face of Brazil.
 
It is only natural that some of the poor would like to redistribute the wealth, somehow.
 
As much as you know where the places are in your city which you would never go or take other people to, we know Brazil. At SouthAmerica.travel we do not wish to hide anything from you. However, our tours and destinations steer clear of such dangers.
 
That's also why we decided to offer escorted tours to Brazil. SouthAmerica.travel works only with specially trained, experienced and licensed local guides and tour directors, who'll share their best advice to keep you safe!
