This isn't really our next stop but I'm toying with the idea of a trip to Rio. It's a long flight but without jet lag, it has its appeal. My husband has always wanted to see the Christ the Redeemer statue and it does seem like a vibrant place to visit.
I've heard mixed things on the crime issues there. Some say that if I stay street smart and stick to the tourist areas, I'll be fine. Some paint a darker picture. Not sure what to believe but it certainly looks stunning.
Anyone been to Rio and want to chime in? What is a must do/see? Extra points for toddler friendly activities.
