    In my opinion,one of the best and craziest nightlife in a beach village in Brazil!!!!!
    Easy to find where as the village is small,you can choose the place by your taste or atmosphere,almost all places the average age for to feel comfortable and part of the fun is under 30!

    From Florianopolis:130km,if you want to get here by plane the closest airport is Florianopolis,than take a bus to Laguna and the ferryboat,next a taxi to the lighthouse village,or all the way by car you can rent at the airport.The road will be the freeway (BR-101),south,as you go from Florianopolis to Porto Alegre,Laguna entrance will be about 2 hours from Floripa,than go into the city and look for Da Barra chanel for the ferryboat.
    From Porto Alegre:345km,all the way with the BR-101,than take the entrance to Laguna and to the ferryboat.
