Specifically regarding Rio de Janiero, a security analysis prepared for LPGA players and obtained from players by GolfDigest.com said: “The city continues to experience high incidences of crime, including armed robberies.

Tourists are particularly vulnerable to street thefts and robberies in the evening and at night, especially in areas adjacent to major tourist attractions.”
