ATMs are located inside bank lobbies with 24/7 access, you'll also find some inside large supermarkets which are open Sundays.

Head to bank lobbies, but be aware that there may be limitations after 10pm. Google HSBC, Banco do Brasil, etc, and see agencies close to your place.

I use Citibank in Ipanema all the time on weekends without issue and is a good option for visitors with foreign bank cards. It is located in heart of Ipanema on Rua Visconde de Pirajá, 250 which is between Vinicius de Morese and Farme do Amoedo.

The ATM scam at the Rio International Airport (GIG) seems to be getting progressively worse. New horror stories are emerging every day about travelers being ripped off at these ATMs.

This scam has been going on for at least the past six years, and as bad as it has been, I suspect what has happened so far is simply a dry run for World Cup travelers and the thousands of tourists who will be in a position to use these machines in the coming months.

I’d suggest you put out the word that the ATMs at GIG are rigged and that travelers will no doubt lose a lot of money from their bank accounts if they use GIG’s ATMs.

The hacking of GIG’s ATMs is finally getting some much-needed publicity in Rio de Janeiro.

Today, O Globo, Rio’s largest and most influential newspaper, published this investigative article, which mentions Trip Advisor and one of its posters, Nancy B, from Princeton, New Jersey, who wrote a post complaining about the hacked ATMs at GIG.

“Tourists are targeted by scam at ATMs at Tom Jobim [Airport GIG]”

“Gangs specialized in cloning credit cards install 'Chupacabra' in airport equipment”
