This is the largest favela in Latin America, with over 200,000 inhabitants. Rocinha, like most of Rio’s favelas, is under the control of a criminal faction. The faction is the ADA (Amigos dos Amigos). Besides drug trafficking, such organizations in Rio have historically been involved in crimes such as arms smuggling, bank robberies, kidnapping, and murder. However, rape, muggings, and break-ins within the favela are strictly forbidden.

Location: Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
