Florianopolis in May/June..worth it?


I am thinking of travelling to Florianopolis next week and want to know if it is still a good beach destination and if there are many people there at this time of the year.

Any suggestions of other good beach destinations in brazil that will have good weather and atmosphere around this time.

The weather this time of year can be hit and miss in Floripa. In May/June, it is already getting cooler and not much beach time to be had. Depends on the year and your luck really.

Where are you now?

Nearby Rio is Buzios to the NE and Angra dos Reis/Ilha Grande to the SW. Those can be reached by car/bus.

If you are able to spend a little $ on flights, you have the option of going up to the NE of Brazil.

The state of Bahia has Porto Seguro with neighboring areas Arraial de Ajuda (lively) & Trancoso (quiet). In Bahia is also Salvador with neighboring areas Costa do Sauipe (resort style) and Praia do Forte (hotels with beach).

The state of Pernambuco has Recife, Olinda, Porto de Galinhas (very nice) and Fernando de Noronha. Fernando de Noronha is an incredibly beautiful island off the coast of Brazil which is ecologically controlled. Just to give you an idea, the ultimate Brazil beach guide - Guia Quatro Rodas - rates all beaches along the coast of Brazil. Three of the top 5 are on Fernando de Noronha.
