What is the air quality like at post (good/moderate/bad)? Are there seasonal air quality issues? Does the air quality have an impact on health?

Great air quality. - Oct 2019

The air in Rio was the best in the world for me. I suffer from allergies and had none the whole time I was there. - Apr 2019

good. - May 2016

Moderate. The stagnant humid summer months make the auto exhaust very noticeable...the rest of the year the ocean breezes make it negligible. - Aug 2013

Decent, but I have no previous issues. - Jun 2011

Air quality is mostly acceptable near the ocean. However, there are a number of areas along the canals, Lagoa, and on the way to the international airport, where the water is polluted by sewage and smells bad. - Jul 2010

Good, though certain areas smell extraordinarily unhealthy. - Jun 2010
