I'm sorry i don't speak portuguese yet!!
i can read, but not write it :-( , THANK YOU soo much for all your answers!
and for Alexandre Bordin, i live in Uruguay, but I'M an Argentinian, so... the question was just for the type of job that i want to do,
and because I know the kind of audience I should point. I'm sooooooo far from judging someone by their nationality. i think is not MY comment wich is prejudice.

Olá,
vou a Floripa umas semanas a partir do 15 de outubro e queria pedir uns conselhos. Queria alugar um quarto e não tenho certeza qué zona é bom se não quero ficar longe demais do centro e ter a posibilidade de fazer excursões na ilha, e tambem ficar perto dum lugar onde fazer jogging . Pensava alugar ou comprar uma bicicleta, mas não tenho certeza se:

-é seguro voltar a casa pela noite em bicicleta o melhor em taxi? (não sei cómo é o tráfico, se tem muito roubo de bicicleta, ...)
-é possivel dar passeios na ilha em bicicleta, pelo menos em algumas partes? Li que muitas ruas não sao aconselhaveis para ciclistas que não são profesionais...
-tem outros lugares onde fazer jogging fora de Beiramar?

Por exemplo vi um quarto na zona Itacorubi e outro em Agronômica e pela questão de movilidade não tenho certeza qual seria melhor para mim.

Hi,
I’m coming to Floripa for a few weeks from the 15th of October, I’m hoping that some of you can give me advice to choose best which area is good for me to live in. I don’t want to be too far from the center and do some excursions on the island, also go jogging if there is a place close by. Can you give some advice on the following questions:
-is it safe to cycle home at night or better to take a taxi? (not sure how traffic/roads are, or if bikes get stolen a lot)
-is it possible to cycle around the island or not so good for somebody who isn’t professional?
-are there other places besides Beiramar to go jogging?
I’m hesitating between different places, some closer to the lagoon, some closer to the center…

Hi Lissi, if you really want to enjoy biking around Floripa you should stay in the south. Armação is a magic place, an old fishermen village, but now a nice and quite district. 22 km from the center. A peaceful place during the year but busy during the summer. Take a look at my photos and see. Here you also have the best beaches, some still quite desert, and amazing trails. Take a look at www.trilhazen.com
I work as a nature guide and can give you some good advices. Welcome.

Olá!
então, a melhor área para se morar se você quer fazer tudo de bike é no entorno da universidade (UFSC). Os bairros são trindade, santa mônica, córrego grande, pantanal e carvoeira. O itacorubi é um pouco perigoso para se andar a noite, mas uma galera o faz porque é perto de outra universidade da região. Em qualquer lugar estamos sujeitos a sustos e assaltos, mas é bem comum ver gente voltando para casa de noite a pé ou de bike nesses bairros. Eles estão numa região bem central da ilha, e bem perto do centro histórico da cidade!

Procure no facebook os grupos de bike de floripa, eles podem te ajudar um monte sobre passeios e caminhos pelos quais percorrer, todo mundo ajuda todo mundo e não é só ciclista profissional que pode andar pelas ruas não!

Seja bem vinda!!

Olá Roberta, obrigada pelos conselhos :) Acabo de aceitar um quarto perto da universidade e vou olhar os grupos facebook. Até pronto :)

Hi everybody, im actually in an abandoned house in florianopolis, the owner gave me permission to live inside and help him to rebuild. My plan is make this place base to digital nomads, art residence, camping spot and other crazy projects.
to be honest my house always works like this, but infloripa the owners are very dificult about host people, so theres now a very good oportunity to have a place here without this constant problem about number of people inside the place.

i can even offer some graphic and web desing in trade for work, is possible stay here too, but now the house still full of problems, anyway still better than stay without place = ))

theres website under construction

IMPORTANT

IS NECESSARY MAKE PREVIOUS DEAL ABOUT GO VISIT THE HOUSE.
BECAUSE LOTS OF PROBLEMS THERE, I MOVED TO FRIEND HOUSE AND GOING THERE JUST TO WORK IN THE DAY.
IF YOU GO WITHOUT PREVIOUS DEAL IS POSSIBLE FIND ANY KIND OF RANDOMIC PEOPLE, IT STILL LOOKING AS ABANDONED HOUSE AND NOT TOO MUCH NEIGHBORS AROUND. THERES FAMILY LIVING IN ONE OF THIS APARTMENTS, LOOKS THEY ARE ALSO MOVING FROM THERE. LETS BE CAREFUL TO AVOID SURPRISES OK?

Hello! I'll be in Florianopolis for about a week, starting tomorrow (Monday) and am thinking of renting a bike to get around during the week. But if anyone has an extra one I could borrow, that would be even better! I'm about 5'1" (147 cm) so a smaller one would work best. Thanks!

Maggie Taurick , San Francisco, USA, about 2 months ago

Oops, I mean 157 cm.
