Estado de Santa Catarina Travel Guide: 287 reviews and 705 photos

long Coastline, mild climate, Santa Catarina, sandwiched between Parana and Rio Grande do Sul and has more then 100 good, very good beaches!!
a unique place
waves of immigrants arrived here , as early as 1829 Germans made it, then Italians, the Poles. the new arrivals not only settled in the City, they spread out and settled in the valleys of the mainland

weather in Brasil

the Capital ..Floripa as Florianopolis is affectioned called, on a lagoon of the Westcoast of Santa Catarina. the unigue setting can even match Rio de Janeiro
the City was settled by the Spaniards in 1540 but then the Portugues took control and when the spanish-portugues war broke out Santa Catarina was created and served as an outpost in 1738. along with Sao Paulo, S.C. is named after a catholic Saint
today Floripa is a busy commercial center, pharmaceutical, parfume and plastics just to name few, beginning all with p ^..^
Florionopolis is connect to the Mainland by the longest suspension Bridge in Brasil.
I knew the area around the Lagoa quite well....best fish dishes I had ever, before and .....after

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:high standard of living and low crime rate
  • Cons:I can't think of any
  • In a nutshell:I am bias, because I love Brasil
