Brazil can be a safe destination for solo women traveling, specially in touristy cities like Rio de Janeiro & Salvador da Bahia. Here are some things to keep in mind:

1. Learn some basic Portuguese. While English is spoken in some tourist areas, knowing a few basic Portuguese phrases will go a long way in helping you communicate with locals and navigate your way around. There are many resources available online and in apps to help you learn Portuguese, or you can take a beginner's course before your trip with our partner business Black to Black School.

2. Pack light and versatile clothing. The weather in Brazil can vary depending on the region, so it's important to pack light, breathable clothing that you can layer. Be sure to pack comfortable walking shoes, a swimsuit, a hat, and sunscreen.

3. Book your accommodation in advance. Especially if you're traveling during peak season ( from December to February or March, after Carnival time), it's important to book your accommodation in advance. Look for hostels, guesthouses, or hotels in safe neighborhoods.

4. Be aware of your surroundings. This is important for any traveler, but especially for solo female travelers. Trust your gut instinct and avoid walking alone at night, especially in deserted areas. Let someone know where you're going and when you expect to be back.

5. Make copies of important documents. Make copies of your passport, ID, travel insurance, and any other important documents. Keep these copies in a separate location from your originals, in case your originals are lost or stolen or have a digital copy saved in your email.

6. Social Media. While Brazil social media like instagram is a great source for local tips, make sure to follow some restaurants, places to visit and get to know the open time in advance.

7. Carry a crossbody purse. A crossbody purse is a great way to keep your belongings safe and secure. Avoid carrying a backpack or purse that you can't keep an eye on at all times.

8. Don't flash your valuables. Avoid carrying a lot of cash or jewelry with you. Keep your credit cards and most of your cash in a safe place at your accommodation.

9. apps. the use of apps to help with translation, get around like uber, order food like ifood are helpful.
