I am a 21 years old guy who will come to Rio in 4th-8th of July. (4 nights)
I am wondering about few things:
a) Where to stay in Rio? Where is the city center? Is there a clear-cut city center where have nightlife, cafes, bars, restaurants, must-see buildings? Since it is a big city and has various things to see, should we stay in different hotels in diferrent places or staying in the same hostel in that 4 days would be more logical?
b)Secondly, is Brazil as scary as the things told, everyone says do not quit your hotel at night, do not walk at night etc?!. If it is, where we should stay in a safe way?
Thanks for response!
