Brazil 2014 Crime and Safety Report: Recife
Travel Health and Safety; Transportation Security; Stolen items; Theft; Murder; Kidnapping; Cargo Security; Floods; Carjacking; Riots/Civil Unrest; Insurgencies; Landslides and mudslides; Drug Trafficking; Fraud; Financial Security 4/1/2014

U.S. Department of State rates the criminal threat level in Recife as Critical.

Crime is the principal threat to visitors in Brazil.  Street crime remains a problem for visitors and local residents alike, especially in the evenings and late at night. Foreign tourists, including Americans, are often targets of crime.  The incidence of crime against tourists is greater in areas surrounding the airport, beaches, hotels, bars, nightclubs, and other establishments that cater to visitors. While the risk is greater at dusk and during the evening hours, street crime can occur both day and night, and even safer areas of cities are not immune. Expensive watches, high profile jewelry, and all electronic devices will immediately attract unwanted attention from criminals. Recife has one of the highest per capita murder rates in all of Brazil.
