Reviews about Rocinha Favela

Yo tourists...stay the hell out of this district. The city of Rio is the only city in the world that has it's own army and many a time they are battling the drug lords in this Favela. Every house here is illegal and the people here are not residents of Rio but deemed squatters. This is not a tourist spot but the largest slum in the city and Brazil.
