The situation is way better but not ideal. Half of population is already vaccinated but I don't recall any place asking for confirmation to allow the entrance.
U should be fine, u should be more concerned with being shot than with covid here in Brazil.
good luck in rio depending where you go
rio? lol, i hope you stay alive
Natal is an excellent city to visit, now Rio is a little dangerous depending on where you are going to be, but I assure you that the tourism part of Brazil is for sure one of the best, good luck on your trip!
^^ dont worry about those 2 Brazilians above me
Rio is a safe place if you arent dumb, especially for locals. since you are a tourist just go to the popular tourist attractions and dont have anything of value like phone in your hands and dont stay at night in the streets, and if you go to the beach just be careful with ''pickpockets'', they steal your phone without you even noticing it
lmao so many ppl from sweden/norway in natal
yes it's cool, just get your covid shot and you'll be fine
things are a little better around here, I'm from São Paulo, one of the most vaccinated states, come vaccinated, it's the best thing to do.
bro, I don't recommend you to come, here it's just chaos
covid is everywere in the world here is no diff. but very few cases actually cuz of vaccine.
i was in natal til fev 2021... very nice nature. not so nice society, ppl are angry af idk why, they call us 'forasteiros'. but everything is cheap. properties/land are cheap even for brazil's standards. have nice places to surf.
preferably stay close to your brazilian friends, and be nice to ppl. you will like there.
rio i'v never been to so idk.
Man, just have fun, we are getting back to normal here, Natal and RJ are both beautiful, here goes some tips.
1 - Use UBER, allways, especially on Rio de Janeiro, there, in any hypotheses u should use taxis.
2- on RJ I highly recommend a guide, he will take u to the best and safest beaches, even to the favela to eat the local food and enjoy everything that only a favela can give to u, the human heat is unique.
3 - If u go whit out a guide, research what you're going to do, do not go to a favela whit out a local or a guide, they can love u and u have the day of u life, or burn u alive in tires, so follow my advices.
4 - last but not less important, have fun, do not be shy about knowing the ppl and asking for help, in every corner u will find someone good.

Have fun, you will be welcomed :)
The covid situation is not ideal but You'll be fine. Wear a mask in crowded/ closed places and you'll be fine
Im from Natal...there's a lot of crime here, why did you chose to come here? there is many other places with more popularity than here...
rio is cancer dont go there
natal is cool but it ainst Ceará
Brazil is so much more than Rio, actually, Rio sucks
Statistically Natal is more dangerous than Rio lmao
Anyway vaccination in Rio is doing pretty good but not as much in Natal
We're just starting to have COVID-19 under control as the population gets vaccinated, so you'll be alright. Avoid the slums and have a good time.
I live in the south of the country, but around here no place is asking for proof of vaccination.
Sorry for hijacking but what happened to that robbery we watched a few weeks back with hostages bound to the roof of cars, drones used by the robbers etc ? That was some crazy shit and it was all over the news but never heard if they caught them or?
RIO SUCKS! Too much violence.
NATAL > RIO.
things r getting good here, a lot of ppl already got the 1st dosis of the vac but less than 30% (dont remember exactly how many) of the population r full imunized, so is not a good deal hang in some pubs, concerts and that kind of places
if u want some tourism things, go to green areas (park, beaches etc) and be careful af, always use mask even if u r full imunized
also, be careful where u go in Rio and dont go to some underground places and metropolitan cities around Natal xD
you better wait until 2022 man, Brazil is not almost 100% safe from covid like EU/NA.
Brazil is boring if you arent having sex/drugs here, so bring some cash and look for places where you can be social
Shit like beautiful beaches, forests or whatever you can see on television and thats enough, so sont go out of your way only to see a different beach
Be real careful, stay well informed -this is the most important thing- I would hate to be a foreigner in an emergency here. Listen to your gut feeling if approached by friendly people, especially women
edit: COVID is a non issue here, use mask and its enough, dont use it if people around you are maskless
Instead of just going there, you should go to all of these cities!
Vitória da Conquista, Feira de Santana, Natal, Salvador (Bahia), Rio Branco, Caruaru, Manaus, Recife, Fortaleza, Maceió
A guy from Brazil told me to come to Maceió so I might have to go there.
not really that much covid rn u should be fine
i'm from natal, if you can, try to stay in some inn at pipa beach. Pipa is the safest place here in natal, the thieves there have an agreement to not harm any tourist or local people in pipa, and people there are very friendly.
You know that Natal is one of the 10th most dangerous cities in brazil(not so long ago it was the top1), right? Just try to don't look like a dumb tourist and you gonna be just fine. The people saying that natal is boring probably didn't leave their houses when they were here, there is lots of things you can do if you like natural adventures(not only running from thieves kkkkkk)
Don't compare Rio and Natal(and any other locations), they're different, each one have it's value and lots of things to show, try to enjoy that and you'll have a good experience.
As for Covid, as much as people would like to say otherwise, it is pretty serious. There's still a lot of people dying day by day because they don't pay the needed attention on it. If you can, i would recommend to come here only in mid 2022 or so
i have family in natal, beautiful place
