It is a typical place to visit if you go to Florianópolis. You find seafood everywhere and the atmosphere of the place is vey charming. The construction is very beautiful and it is nice also to eat seafood after being around the place.

We have been robbed near by the Municipal Market in central Florianopolis. We have parked our car in the parking place and our luggage was in the car boot. When we went back to the car, it was open and they took our luggage. We were left with nothing else than the clothes we were wearing. Police, rent a car... More

Very good selection of seafood. Loved the beaches and bars outside the city. The beaches were not for the weak, lots of waves and surf. Enjoyed touring the Island and staying at Prai do Armacao, which had more natives than tourists.

The downside is that the... More

I loved Florianopolis...it´s beaches, it´s beira mar, and I liked downtown too. But the historic district has no charm at all...shineless, boring...avoid it! The public market it´s even worst: there are a few, very few stores related with sea products or food. T- shirts and fake tennis shoes rule the market. A couple(just a pair) of lanchonetes (less of a... More

Don´t miss the chance to visit the Public Market once you are in Florianopolis because it´s a very nice historic buiding (first phase built in 1899 and the second in 1915) with more than 100 small shops (they call it "boxes"). We bought great popular art for fair prices (don´t forget to bargain allways): ceramics and very nice decorative stuff... More
