South America’s surfers paradise, Florianopolis is famed for its magnificent coastline and love of the good life.
The place well-heeled Brazilians go to let their hair down, this up-and-coming destination is an intoxicating mix of hot boutique hotels, chic cocktail lounges, laid-back beaches and and out-of-this-world natural beauty.
With over 40 white-sand beaches to chose from, this is a place to check in and chill out. Surfers will be spoilt for choice too with plenty of stunning locations along the coast to ride the waves. Learners will love Barra da Lagoa, a quaint cove with gentle waters where you can find your feet while those with more accomplished skills can put themselves to the test at Campeche Beach. Stay untill sunset and then party ‘till dawn at the buzzing beachfront bars.
Tie your trip in with the Festa do Divino, a lively festival which takes place 40 days after Easter and sees the streets filled with music and dancing. Don’t eat before you go though, the street food during this traditional parade is some of the best you will ever try.
After living the high life in the city, let Journey Latin America whisk you off to Ponta dos Ganchos, a honeymoon paradise where A-list worthy privacy and top-of-the-range resort facilities are high on the agenda.
