Cash is more interesting and just use your card if you have no more cash from your country and all the banks are closed, there is no 24 h ATM next to where you are.
    Why is paying cash more interesting?

    I respect the opinions of the other members who said never, so I'm just going to talk about my experience. I have been going to Rio for over 15 years and have used a credit card at numerous termas, prives, restaurants, stores, hotel, etc, and have never experienced any problems using my credit card. I usually designate a credit card that I rarely use specifically for my trips. I always notify the CC company and advise them of my travel plans with the dates. Sometimes they will send me a notification after my first transaction and then I have to respond within a certain amount of time before they freeze it. I think they froze it once, some years ago because I either didn't notify them beforehand or I didn't respond promptly to the notification. Same with ATM card, I have a travel acct that I use for the trips for withdrawals. I stopped using my main bank acct over a decade ago.

    Anyways that's my 2 cents. You got to do what ever you feel comfortable with. Hopefully I didn't jinx myself with this post, LOL. Good luck.

    The advantage for me is that it could enable me to reduce the amount of cash that I would carry and still be able to pay potentially large bills, given the prices of sessions at some of the termas. Given the risk of muggings in RJ, I would be more comfortable carrying less cash. With that said, I might want to carry enough cash with me anyway, in the event that the transactions fail. Give the high levels of cyber crime in Brazil, I would not be surprised if my banks decline the transactions, despite my travel notification to them, and I wonder if they would consider the termas suspicious vendors. Has anyone had issues with declined transactions at termas in particular, but not at other vendors in Brazil?

    I know from my day job that the theft and fraudulent use of credit card information is rampant in Brazil, via both corrupt employees and outside hackers. I found many references to this problem in Trip Advisor reviews of the lodging options that I considered. Has anyone that used their cards at termas later observed suspicious transactions from sources other than the termas on their cards?

    Some of the posts that I read suggested that there might have been some slight padding of the bills at some termas, but that this slight padding was obvious from a review of the bill before paying it with one's card. Have you seen any outrageously large and unexpected fraudulent charges on your cards from the termas, as might happen at some strip clubs in New York or Las Vegas?

    I understand that there may be a surcharge for paying with a card, which I might be willing to pay if it gives me greater peace of mind by enabling me to carry less cash. However, I would certainly not be willing to pay this surcharge for the privilege of fraudulent charges and getting my card frozen.

    I am single and do not have to worry about explaining the charges on my card to a wife or anyone else.
    Try forex travel cards. That way your primary account is safe. Distribute the money you are carrying on a couple of these cards. So in case a cyber theft occurs the damage is limited to that card only.

    Love isg

    I have been a reader and report filler at ISG for maybe 10 years can't remember but I think my first use was of this site was for slovakia. This site made the difference for my search for P4 P. I was traveling all over europe maybe once a year. I didn't have a laptop so I would print out the last 100 post for the city I was going to. Things have changed. Now, and for the last 6-7 years I only rent an apartment from AIRBNB. I retired and divorced in 2009 and I go to south america 3-4-or5 times a year. Most of the research I do for a new city is using ISG, looking for an area to spend time in while looking for safe areas close by with AIRBNb apartments, that I can afford. For me this is a big part of the excitement of traveling. I have spent alot of time in Buenos Aires. It was difficult for me, an american, to get a Brazil visa. Now that I have a visa and 2 trips to Brazil under my belt all I can say is WOW. I really love this place.

    On this last trip I prepaid for 2 weeks thru AIRBNB at an apartment hotel. I think that's what its called. I don't remember the name but the address was Avenue Princesa Isabel 500. I rented this thru AIRBNB for 2 weeks and my total cost worked out to us $52.00 per day. This is the most I have ever paid for an apartment but it had all the things I like. 24 hour doorman, 1 bedroom, A beautiful balcony were I would have coffee in the morning and vodka tonic at night. My apartment was cleaned every day, you change your own linen. I brought 3 chica back to my room and all I did was wave to the person working the counter. They could care less. This place also has a restaurant. Crappy food. But its handy to buy water or a soda or coffee to take back to the room.

    People have different opinions on things like using a CC card or never use a CC, never consider a street walker or I like street walkers. This is what makes the world go round. I don't like to use a bordello but that's just me. I Like to bring a chica back to my room and if I smell penus on her breath I give her a toothbrush and say please brush your last client off your breath. You can't do that at a bordello.

    Someone asked for my most recent hotel. I hope this answers your question.

    I have been to Rio 20+ times and I never carry my cards on me anywhere. I bring cash I need for the day end of. There is a surcharge on CC in termas -usually 10% + or more.

    I wouldn't risk paying with cards in Brazil just at random places. The biggest scam place turned out to be Shopping Leblon! Loool Exclusive shopping center in the richest part of town.

    You have been warned.

    Saturday, go to solarium or Monte carlo terma, it is also open Saturday. After sessioning with the girl, pick her number to arrange to meet her Sunday.

    Mosaic is good but if you don't speak Portuguese, it will be difficult. Many girls are mechanical there. It is very stressful.

    Go to Mabs if you just want to chill.

    You only have three days, don't waste your time. P.S. Never say to the girl you'll session with you only stay two days in Rio de Janeiro, say you are on vacation for one month if you want to get a better service, because they will think they will session with you more times in following days.
    Yes say you're here for 6 months and want to see her alot if its good. In and out of terma. That will get her juices flowing.

    First 2 def not.

    IBIS yes and Best Western. I road tested both. Check in as 2 people and check your GDP in and out and then the next one can come up. Only 2 adults at a time. Ignore the looks in reception. Fuck them.

I have been checking apartments via Airbnb and Alugue temporal. I still don't know if there is a hotel near Copa that accepts girls? Hotrod where are you staying?

These girls know that most gringos want no problems, they just want the females to leave quietly.

    The only advice I would give you is, in the future, take a couple of pictures of the girl before you go to your hotel / apartment. That way if she acts crazy, you can post her on the internet so everyone will know her scam.
    The second option is the best for me, don't pay and kick her out of building, I had the same last year, , I grabbed the girl out of the building, she said if she sees me in Mabs I ll have trouble, I said see you tomorrow nothing happened, they just have a big mouth.

    Both options are good but it depends on the person, he also did the right thing not to waste his time with the girl and try to find another one.

    That's why I am more into termas.
