3 days in Floripa - where to stay?


me and my wife plan to stay in Floripa from 24 to 28 March.

During the day we would like to spend time on some nice beach (Mole beach should be nice and not overcrowded), before night we would like to go to the city, see the bridge. If you've got some interesting tips what to see there.

We are looking for accomodation near Mole beach, than maybye to rent a bike or car?? Could you help me to plan these 3 days? I'm not sure whether it is better to live in some hotel in center and than to trave to beach (by car / taxi) or to find accomodation near the mole beach and than try to go to the city in the evening.

Thank you!!

Petr from Czech Republic (Europe, Prague)

I recommend a boat trip to the beautiful tiny Campeche island. Its amazing beach is too beautiful to describe. Boat leave from Armaçao

You probably do not want to ride a bike, since there are long distances between beaches and from any of those to the city center, where the bridge is, and the roads are not bike friendly (lots of hills and no decent shoulder in many places). A car would be much better, since you will find yourself easily driving over 250 km during this period, IMHO (the island is 80 km long north to south, and 30 km wide). You will probably get better value for your money at Barra da Lagoa or Jurere Tradicional beaches, instead of Mole, but I may be wrong on that . The timing is perfect, I live in Floripa and the second half of March is the best - you beat the crowds, get more reasonable prices, and less rain too.

Floripa has long distances and heavy traffic so if you're willing to enjoy the beaches, I recommend you to get a hotel at the beach. Hotels at Lagoa da Conceição are near Praia Mole and you get lots of options for restaurants, bars, nightlife and services at walking distance. Praia Mole is a little far walking and there's a big hill in the way, so a car may be nice. Specially if you plan to visit other parts of the island.
