The Best Time to Enjoy Santa Catarina

Carnival marks the end of the Summer and high season in Brazil.

Santa Catarina, in special, suffers from seasonal tourism, being most visited from December to February.

But for those that are not tied to school's calendar there is no better time of the year to enjoy Santa Catarina coast than March & April: the weather is still hot, the sea is at its warmest, the fantastic beaches are completely uncrowded and prices are much lower.
