Brazil Travel Packages: Florianopolis
Florianopolis is the capital of the state of Santa Catarina and is mostly located on Ilha de Santa Catarina. The city has about 419,000 inhabitants and is affectionately called "Floripa." The island, strongly influenced by the Portuguese, is connected to the mainland by Ponte Hercilio Luz, the longest suspension bridge in Brazil and the symbol of Floripa. More than 40 beaches and unique geography await you: mountains overgrown with tropical rainforests, cliffs, mangroves, dunes, lakes, waterfalls, the ocean and nearby islands. Surfers, hikers, sports enthusiasts and night owls get their money's worth. The special thing about it all is that there are some densely built-up areas that are often only a stone's throw away from completely uninhabited areas, which can only be reached by boat or on hiking trails. The cultural and culinary offerings spoil locals and visitors alike. It is not happenstance that Florianopolis has the highest index for quality of life in the country. The subtropical climate has an average annual temperature of 64 °F (18 °C). For a getaway on the beach, the summer (December-February) offers very good weather conditions with high temperatures of 81 °F (27 °C) and 84 °F (29 °C). For exploring the city and excursions in the surrounding areas, more moderate weather, from March to May and from September to November, would be ideal. In the winter months from June to August, be sure to bring some warm clothes as it can get quite cold, especially at night.
