Florianopolis is synonymous with beautiful beaches, hills with native forest, exuberant nature and a generous and welcoming people, but the charms of the capital of Santa Catarina go far beyond the natural beauties and its people: Floripa is a pole of good business opportunities, of professional growth and quality of life. Because of this, the city has been a favorite tourist destination for 9 out of 10 Brazilians, the ideal place to start and raise children, and living in Florianópolis is today the dream of many people in the country and abroad.
LIVE IN FLORIANÓPOLIS IS TO LIVE IN A PERMANENT STATE OF VACATION AND A FEW MINUTES OF WORK
Those who live in Florianópolis can experience the joy of vacations at any time of the year. There are 42 beaches – almost all with crystalline waters and fine white sand -, trails, waterfalls, ramps for free flight, reservations with native Atlantic Forest, caves with rock inscriptions etc. However, this beauty would be of no use if the city offered only beautiful scenery, but the work, the school of the children and other places that are frequented in the daily life were far from home, and this is not the case in Florianópolis.
The area of 424.4 km² of the island of Santa Catarina allows that, from the central region, one can easily access any neighborhood of the city (including the mainland). In addition, decentralization of services is increasing – an example is the growth of the New North of the Island, region known as “Silicon Valley of Brazil.” The region is experiencing a moment of growth a little over a decade ago, and today it is an important technological pole that attracts Brazilians and foreigners interested in undertaking, after all, we are talking about the “Capital of Innovation“. According to Acate (Associação Catarinense de Empresas de Tecnologia), the technology sector is made up of about 1,000 companies that, together, make 5.4 billion reais and move around R$ 11.5 billion. In April this year, the sector generated 230 new jobs, with a salary base of R$ 4,500.00, on average.
IN THE CENTER OF THE SOUTHERN REGION, FLORIANÓPOLIS HAS EASY ACCESS TO THE MAIN CAPITAL OF BRAZIL AND MERCOSUL
Florianópolis is the capital “in the middle” of the South, and this places it in a strategic position for business. By airplane, it is possible to arrive in an hour to Porto Alegre, Curitiba, São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro, for example. By car to Paraná and Rio Grande do Sul, the roads are duplicated and managed by consortiums of companies responsible for the quality of the asphalt, signaling and safety, allowing fast and quiet travel.
