Practical information and some important tips

December is already summer in Rio de Janeiro and temperatures sometimes reach the 40°C (104°F). It is strongly recommended the use of sunblocks daily. Despite the sun, it usually rains at the end of the afternoon, but the rain usually dissipates quickly. The good thing about summer is that the rain usually doesn't stay for long (e.g. days in a row), bringing a relief to the warmer days.

 

Rio de Janeiro’s water supply conforms to international standards; due to the pronounced taste of chlorine in the water it is advisable to drink bottled mineral water.

 

Rio de Janeiro has 110 or 120 Volt 60 cycles alternate current (AC).

 

As in any city in the world of the size of Rio de Janeiro, the key to an uneventful stay is to protect yourself from pickpockets and carry as little cash and as few valuables as possible.

 

Pedestrians DON’T have the priority over cars in the streets, not even in the cross-walks. Cross the street only when the traffic lights are green for walkers or, in the case of smaller streets, if you see that there aren’t cars coming. Drivers do not expect a walker to cross in front of them. The same applies to the cycleways (e.g. along the beach sidewalks).
