Cost Of Living
Thanks for the help on language courses....I am trying to work out how much cash I need and was wondering if u think that $17,000 BRL's would be enough to live in florianoplis for 6 months.....So long as I have enough to party, eat and sleep ill be happy.
RE: Cost Of Living
I think you're good with this amount, I would recommend you to rent something close to the place you plan to spend most of your time to save in transportation... For example Lagoa da Conceicao offers plenty nightlife options and is close to Praia mole and Joaquina both places for young and beautiful people, so if you rent a studio there you wouldn't need to get a cab or drive to somewhere else afterwards...
Travel Tips for Florianópolis
Praia do Moçambique
A 14 km beach all preserved with no buildings or commodities, a quiet , uncrowded place with powerful, tubular waves, both lefts and rights. Choose a peak and surf by yourself. The best swell is E,SE with light NE wind or W. If the wind is light S you can surf on a spot called Camping da Barra ( ask locals about ) with handle some waves with this kind of wind. The right side of Moçambique is called Barra da Lagoa, a place that works only with big swells, generally crowded with kids and longboarders.
The belief is that this beach is called “Beach of the English” because there has shipwrecked a great English ship. Nowadays the beach is one of the most urbanised of the island, with facilities able to support a wide tourists flow. It offers a large range of utilities and attractions such as bars, restaurants, shops, hotels, campings, and houses for rental.
So here is where my adventure began. We found (after searching high and low) that Pousada Correa had the best lodging in town. Additionally the Pousada was the only place in Joaqina that had internet access. After spending a few weeks in Joaqina, due to the hospitality and warmth that we were received with, my friend Melissa decided to move a few houses down the street from the Pousada.

Santa Catarina and the city/island of Florianapolis is very nice. With a large European influence in the people's genes here those of us with blonde hair and blue eye actually fit in a bit. Many people will think you are from Germany, however, and will attempt to speak German with you. (Great, if you speak German!)
The beaches of Santa Catarina are beautiful -- very long and wide with lots of surf. However, being south brings the colder water. Beware!
This island is the perfect size to rent a car and have a drive. From the beaches to the south to the beaches of the north and the lake in the middle, this is picturesque island that is laid back and away from it all.
