The Travel Insurance with the largest coverage

With the exception of some known high risk areas (mainly in urban areas) and easily identifiable, tourist Brazil has a medium safety profile. Thus, as a rule, some caution and attention is advised when walking on foot in urban centers, especially at night, even in places of high tourist frequency, because of the possible occurrence of robberies and theft, sometimes with great physical violence.

Transporting and displaying any objects that may be viewed as valuable is not recommended. In the event of a robbery, one should never offer the least resistance or seek escape, given the high possibility of being subjected to violence.

Motoring at night or using taxis that are not accredited by the tourist authorities or recommended by hotel units should be avoided.

Tourists are advised to bring only photocopies of their documents, leaving the originals in the hotel safe.
Summer is warm and oppressive; Winter is long, mild and with strong winds. During the year, the weather is cloudy and partly cloudy. Throughout the year, the temperature generally ranges from 13 ° C to 29 ° C and is rarely below 8 ° C or above 32 ° C.
The best times of the year to visit Florianopolis and warm weather activities are from late March to late June and from early August to early December.
