    Watch your belongings. Specially if you see someone looking like a lost tourist walking too close to you. Listen: Watch out!! This ain't no joke! And enjoy Rio.

    Give yourself plenty of time to walk to the gate. I was not impressed when landing I had to walk like half a mile around the airport to get out to immigration.

    Don't use the ATM machines here, if your credit/debit card does not have a chip it might get cloned here. Mine has been cloned three times

    (Terminal 1) There is a row of ATMs on the third level, near the food court. Not on the first or second levels as the signage suggests.

    The renovations are taking too long, can't believe an airport this big doesn't have places to charge cell phones. Limited food options. WiFi is free only for 60 minutes.

    Horrible. Horrendously expensive with nowhere decent to eat. Spend as little time as possible here.

    GIG to Copacabana or Ipanema is about R$ 60.00 via a yellow cab.

    If not Brazilian, when you get off the plane don't dally - go straight to immigration, lines can be really long. Use the restroom before you land or you risk being at the end of a very long line

    Dear gringo, I'm sorry for this shitty AirPort. It's a shame that this could Be your first Experience in Brazil. We are better than this. I promise.

    With renovations all over, it's not always clear where to go, and to ask for directions can take a while since not everyone speak english, and the ones who do are not always kind. Be patient.

    Do not arrive too early for your flight ... You may be stuck ground-side, and the air-side options for entertaining yourself are even worse.

    Don't use the ATMs at the airport. People have been installing ATM card skimmers and hidden cameras to see your PIN keystrokes

    If you are last minute shopping for Havaianas before your leave Rio - buy them outside the gates. Inside they are 50% more expensive and few variants.

    Some boys that clean the shoes dont ask before they full your shoes with some shit. So i think they should be forbidden to bother the clients there. Some security please!

    New renovations make this place feel like a shopping mall instead of an airport - in a good way! Little Mama does quick yet tasty pizza.

    It seemed like they had only one line/entrance to security checkpoint for international flights. You can imagine the ridiculous line...
