    The yellow cabs are cheaper than the white ones, and make sure you use the meter! Any flat rate that the cabbies offer you is worse.

    Not a lot of options to eat once you are at the international gates. Eat before coming.

    The ATMs are well hidden to force tourists to face extorsive exchange rates. At Terminal 1, go to the 3rd floor all the way to the left after leaving the elevator and you will find the ATMs.

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

    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.

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

    Nothing inside the terminal to eat except a few extremely overpriced places. But they have free internet through the Mastercard wifi. Just have to login every 30 mins

    Avoid exchanging currency here like the plague. One of the booths wanted to apply a 50% service fee when I tried to buy Chilean pesos!

    New International arrival, terminal 2, has an absurd corridor on exit door, to force people thru taxi booths. Terrible. If someone stops, it is a jam. Unbelievable.

    James Bond lands here in Moonraker (1979). Legend has it Roger Moore was late to shooting and had just enough time for hair and make-up before shooting his arrival again, this time as James Bond.

    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.

    Don't arrive before 3 hours for international flights, they will not let you check in and there's little places to sit to wait.

    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!

    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
