    Survivor Guide: Visiting Rio de Janeiro


    The city of Rio de Janeiro is popular among tourists due to its beach culture and picturesque landscapes. Many people visit to relax on the sunny beaches, which span from the east to west of Rio de Janeiro. However, there are some beautiful sightseeing opportunities and Rio de Janeiro can best be seen from the top of Pao de Acucar mountain. The carnival is undoubtedly the main attraction and it runs for almost two weeks so plan your visit to include this popular event.

    Take care of your safety in Rio de Janeiro

    Safety practices are wise to follow in any new country or city and Rio de Janeiro is no different. Although it has a higher crime rate than most tourist resorts, it is unlikely that you will encounter any violence if you stay vigilant and stay with a travel companion. Stay safe with your cash in case of any encounters with robbers or pickpockets. Buses are frequented by thieves as are empty streets and beaches. Don’t take valuables to the beach and keep an eye on your belongings or have a friend look after them if you want to go for a dip in the water. Accidents may also happen as a result of someone else’s negligence. Although this is unfortunate, it can occur but the holiday company you booked with has a responsibility for your safety. If you booked a package holiday then there is something you can do about it.

    Package holidays and compensation

    If you have an accident that is someone else’s fault on a package holiday, you are covered by UK personal injury law. This means that you have a right to compensation if negligence occurred at any time during your holiday and there is evidence to that effect. If it occurred during an element of your package holiday such as the flights, the transfers, pre-arranged excursions or at the hotel, this makes the process of claiming holiday accident compensation much easier. Call a personal injury law firm like Accident Advice Helpline for assistance.
