Florianopolis Tour; When most people think of a Brazilian vacation, Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo are the two best-known destinations. But there is a holiday gem that has yet to be discovered by tourists outside of South America: Florianopolis. With over 100 white sandy beaches – large and small – this island is renowned for sunshine, water sports, delicious seafood, sizzling nightlife, and warm hospitality. The island is small, with one central town and tiny villages throughout the countryside and along the ocean shores. It is easy to travel around this paradise by car or public transportation. Explore these and more with your expert personal guide, available 24/7 on your schedule!

Tips

  • Money exchange: Shops, bars and restaurants will either take the Brazilian currency - the Real - or credit cards (especially Visa and MasterCard). You can also look for major bank ATM machines that work with flags, such as Cirrus or Plus.
  • Tipping: It's not common to leave tips, except for the hotel bellboy (R$ 2 ~ 5) and tour guides (R$ 10 ~20). Restaurants and bars will normally add a 10% service charge to the bill and only a small tip is expected for good service.
  • Transportation: Florianópolis has a reasonably efficient public transportation system. The easiest way to move around for short trips is by taxi. Car rentals are inexpensive and provide the best way to travel around the island.
  • Electricity: Brazil's electrical grid operates on a 220v system, so most North American appliances will not work (and might even break down) without an adaptor. Most hotel bathrooms will have adaptors for shavers.
  • Water: Tap water in Florianópolis is drinkable. Nevertheless, as a precautionary measure, we suggest that you should drink bottled mineral water whenever possible.

"Exciting, a whole new concept"
Around The World Travel Radio

"Even though I am a local, I thoroughly enjoyed visiting and learning more about the history of the landmarks. The author's interest in the area comes through in his engaging style of writing. Being able to complete the tour at my own pace made it even
more enjoyable."
Flora Savitzky (Researcher)

"When the conference ended, I stayed in town on my own and used T4M's self-guided tour to decide which things in town I wanted to visit and what to see/do there. The guide was right every step of the way. Bottom line, this guide helped me make the most of my time in town."
Ed Wetschler, SATW & Editor of Tripitini
