Another thing that brings so many shoppers to Rio de Janeiro is the great prices on many items. You can find reasonable prices for shoes, clothes, art, musical instruments, and all the souvenirs that you can carry. Remember that most stores are open weekdays 10 to 7 and 9 to 1 on Saturdays. The larger stores will accept credit cards, but smaller stores and street vendors usually only accept cash, so make sure that you have some on hand.

You will also have fun with negotiating—most shopkeepers will let you negotiate the price of the item you want to buy depending on the method of payment you choose. If you see two prices on the same item, the lower price refers to cash and the higher price is what you will pay if you want to use a credit card or check.
