I've heard great things about Brazil (specifically Florianópolis and Rio) and now planning on taking a work-vacation trip to Florianópolis at the end of this year for up to 6 months. Will be grinding poker full time still. I'm budgeting for up to 1.3k EUR each month for just rent (1-2 bedroom apartment in a nice area) and about 600EUR on top of that for living expenses. I'll aim to get an apartment in a somewhat nicer part of the city.
Thought I'd get this thread up to hear other people's experiences with Florianópolis?
What can I expect in terms of money (spending), the people, culture and language? I don't speak any Portuguese so will be learning a new language too!
I'm mainly just looking for nice weather, amazing looking girls and cheap living expenses. I don't ask for much else
. So I welcome any suggestions on other places I should visit whilst in Brazil!
