I am a 24 year old American guy that is seriously considering going to Brasil to teach English for a while. My two choices are Florianopolis and Rio de Janeiro. Rio because it is a famous big city, very beautiful, and it is apparently very fun. Florianopolis because it is also beautiful, cheaper, and I actually know someone there. For those of you that have been to these places, where would you go to live? Thanks a lot.

Hi There,

I think you should pick Florianopolis - Rio is to dangerous and besides you already know someone there wich makes so much easier when you move to other country.

Good Luck!

Best Regards,

Florianópolis is surely the best choice. Rio is our second largest city and despite its famous sights known to people all over the world, it's a dangerous place to go.

Florianópolis, besides being way more beautiful than Rio - in my opinion - it's a small and quiet city where violence ir rare to find. Moreover, the beacher around Florianópolis are also much more beautiful than those in Rio and with no pollution, which guarantees you safe bathing.

Have a great trip,
