Welcome to Florianopolis – the beautiful capital of Santa Catarina. It is officially the state capital with the highest quality of life in Brazil. A popular Brazilian magazine “Veja” named it the “best place to live” in Brazil. It is also one of the most popular tourist destinations, especially for gay men. Even if Floripa (as the city is also known) doesn’t boast as many bars and clubs as, say, Rio, it can offer a wonderful alternative – a real paradise of nature during the day and some interesting options to go out at night. This small guide is meant to help you find the places to go out, and please, leave your comments – how was it, did you like it, would you recommend it, etc. Feel free to send us your pictures and links to YouTube videos to info at gayflorianopolis dot com.
