Dangers & Annoyances

The beach is lit at night and police are in the area, but it's still not wise to wander the sands after dark. It's fine to go for a drink at one of the kiosks at night – just try to avoid walking along deserted stretches.

Av NS de Copacabana (NS stands for Nossa Senhora, meaning Our Lady) is also sketchy after dark and on weekends, when the shops are closed and few locals are around.


Banco do Brasil Has an ATM. There's also a second location near Siqueira Campos metro station.
