A Hidden Digital Nomad Gem on Brazil's Coast: Florianópolis

A Hidden Digital Nomad Gem on Brazil's Coast: Florianópolis

Florianópolis is one of the most beautiful places in Brazil's South Region. It has a tropical climate, which means it has two main seasons: dry and wet. This blog post will explore how to make the best use of Florianópolis' resources for digital nomads during these two different seasons.

The dry season in Florianópolis is from May to November, and the wet season is from December to April. The best time for digital nomads to visit Florianópolis really depends on what they want to get out of their trip. If you're looking for a relaxing beach vacation, then the dry season would be the time for you. Remember, Brazil is in the Southern Hemisphere, so summer and winter are happening at the inverse times they would be happening up north!

The wet season, on the other hand, is when all of the big events take place in Florianópolis. Surf competitions, cliff diving championships, and more happen during this time of year, so if you want to get a taste of Brazil's adventure lifestyle make sure to come between December and April!

Brazil has some amazing digital nomad resources for any type of traveler looking to experience everything it has to offer. If you're not into surfing or cliff jumping (what?!) there are still plenty of ways that you can enjoy your stay in Florípa. During both seasons, we recommend finding an apartment on Airbnb right near Praia dos Ingleses (the English Beach) this is where most people head out to catch some waves and enjoy the ocean.

Portuguese is the main language, spoken in Brazil, and in Florianópolis, you will find that most of the locals speak at least a little English. If you want to learn even more languages or brush up on your Portuguese skills before your trip make sure to check out Duolingo, Drops, or some other services, so you can at least learn how to say obrigada or Obrigado.

Whichever season you decide to visit during, we recommend checking out some museums and galleries in Florianópolis' city center. The most well-known is the Mole museum which showcases the island's history from its indigenous roots through today! Want something a bit different? Check out one of Brazil's famous botanical gardens Parque Estadual da Ilha do Cardoso, home to many types of local flora & fauna not found anywhere else in Brazil. Pair that visit with an amazing hike around the island and you'll have a great time exploring Florianópolis' natural beauty!

Brazil is also home to some of the most famous cultural festivals in all of South America. These events draw thousands upon thousands of people from around Brazil, but many end up leaving disappointed because they didn't know what was really going on when they arrived. To make the most out of festivals in Santa Catarina (the local region) you should check out the Festivals in Brazil website, which will tell you everything from what to wear to where the best parties are.

In conclusion, Florianópolis can be a great place to visit for digital nomads looking to explore Brazil's southern region in a relaxed and adventurous way.
