The favela is not the most dangerous place of Rio. Unless the favela you are going to is having a turf war which is not the case for the favela pereira da silva where this favela is in. This favela was dangerous a long time ago but due to its lack of strategic placement is not a drug hotspot.
People in Favelas are working class and are good hosts. If there are some thiefs in favelas they won't steal inside the favelas so don't worry... Plus if you scream a million people come out of their houses so DONT WORRY!
Really loved the place.

Direct access to Santa Teresa, Lapa, and Largo do Machado subway station. 20 Minutes to the beach. 30% Of Cariocas live in a favela, this is the real vibe of Rio de Janeiro and it's safe! ... more less
