My husband and I will be in Rio for 2 days in December. I have read the safety warnings about not carrying cash or cameras, staying in populated areas etc. (Thanks for all for that advise.)
We will be staying at the Marriott on Copacabana and planning to hit the main tourist sites (including sky diving).
Also, it is safe to walk in the evenig from the Marriott to one of the nearby restaurants?
What is the best way for us to get around to the sites? Taxi? Subway? Walking?
If it is taxi, what is the best way to make arrangements? I was not planning to have a phone.
