Dangers & Annoyances

Beware of pickpockets in the city center and petty theft on the beaches; gaggles of adolescents specialize in snatch-and-grab robbery along Av Beira Mar (watch your necklaces and purses). Tourists waiting at bus stops to return from Praia do Futuro have been targeted. Empty streets in Centro and Praia de Iracema are best avoided after dark.
