Maresias vs Floripa

There are amazing beaches all along the coast of Brazil. Brazil is the 5th largest country in the world so you can imagine that spending a month in the country is not nearly enough to cover it. However, I went to two different beaches in two different states and enjoyed them both.

First I went to Maresias in the state of São Paulo. The beach is about 4 hours from the city of São Paulo and a destination for a lot of Brazilians. Almost no one spoke English and there was not another backpacker at my hostel. I loved every second of it!






Next up was Florianopolis. This beach is in the state of Santa Catarina and very touristy. The town is much larger and great for night life and very different from Maresias. I personally enjoyed Maresias much more!


My hostel in Floripa had flags from around the world and in that was a flag from California! I thought it was funny that the USA was being represented by just Cali. 🙂


My hostel in Maresias had a bit of a sense of humor.

Needless to say, I spent more than a few days in the sun.

    Hi Jenna,

    Well you know I love Travel especially when it is written in sand on A Beach!

    Was with your Mom the other day at Dillon beach when she wrote in sand I Love U Jenna!

    Hope your Mom’s and Peter’s flights were easy.

    Have a great time together and have an extra beer for me!

      They have arrived safe and sound and we are enjoying some fine Argentine wine! It’s amazing to write things in the sand because they are just for the moment and then wash away.
