A dangerous, stinky, ugly and expensive place to be. Unless you like these adjectives, run!

Brazil is not for amateurs!
Please make sure you understand that the net salary you receive in after taxes is NOT net at all.
Everything you buy has an additional 50% average tax that is added on top of anything you need to buy. In other words, everything will cost you double the original price. If you prefer half of your salary will vanish in taxes.
The 50% tax + 20% tax that impact your salary directly + 25% tax of what the government in Brazil charge the companies, are drained dry by the system to pay public servers who raise their own salaries and pensions as they please. In short, it's slavery.
Not to mention corruption.
It could be awesome prosperous country.

It's interesting to note that in decades past, Southern Brazil was considered a safe alternative to Rio and SP. I visited Porto Alegre in 2006 and found it to be a much calmer city than Sao Paulo. Unfortunately, things have deteriorated not only in Porto Alegre, but all over the state of Rio Grande Do Sul. Some say it's even more dangerous than Rio and SP now, or at the very least, just as dangerous. A real shame, as Southern Brazil is very unique with its own characteristics. Like someone else said, you're really not safe anywhere in Brazil anymore. Don't go there unless you really have to.

Stay clear from brazil! Sao Paulo, one would think, would be the place to be. But this city is crowded, infrastructure is collapsing, healthcare is atrocious, violence is high. It even has the occasional bomb going off because someone decided to rob a bank.

I would say all that is limited to Sao Paulo, but I can not... It happens in all of brazil. And some cities are even worse than Sao Paulo, like Rio, to Maceio!
