Yes, you should watch your belongings all the freaking time! If you are being robbed, give everything you have and don’t react. We don’t want to scare you out but we are gonna. Rules:
– Don’t walk distracted on the streets. Point A to point B straight away.
– If you want to look at your phone, do it indoors or inside your uber/taxi/ car.
– Don’t wear or show off flashy clothes, jewelry, expensive cameras or other expensive/easy to rob items.
– Try to arrange services and settle the prices beforehand at your hotel service desk or use the help of Brazilian friends you made on our wedding.
Unfortunately, Recife does not have a decent public transportation.
