During your trip to Brazil, make sure you don’t miss out on Florianopolis’ culture and culinary talent as it not only wows the tourists but the locals as well! The city also has the highest index for good quality of life nationwide. The climate is subtropical with an average annual temperature of 18 degrees Celsius. For a beach holiday, we recommend visiting during the Brazilian summer (December to February) as it offers good weather conditions with maximum temperatures varying from 27 to 29 degrees. For city tours and excursions the moderate temperatures from March to May and September to November are more pleasant. During the winter months of June to August, you may want to bring some warm clothes as it can get quite chilly in the evening.
