  • One of the first things you need to do is learn a little Portuguese. The more you know, the better it will be for you. You should certainly learn some common phrases or you’ll be lost when you visit rural areas where English isn’t spoken much.
  • If you’re victimized by any sort of crime, you need to report it to the proper authorities right away. It’s a good idea for you to plan ahead too and have an idea of where you’re going so that you don’t get lost or waste too much time looking for places. Tourists are soft targets for petty crimes in this country. But as long as you are careful, you shouldn’t have much trouble.
  • If you are going to spend a lot of time outdoors, you need to carry appropriate clothing with you. Carry caps, pants, long-sleeved shirts, and a lot of insect repellent. Consider using taxis instead of buses and always take care of your money. Also, don’t draw unwanted attention to yourself. Respect the locals.
  • Traveling to this country can be very exciting because of the events and sites you get to experience once you’re there. But, just as you would if you were on a trip to any other foreign country, you need to take care of yourself. Taking these steps will not only ensure you have an enjoyable holiday but also a safe one too.
