I done indirect game by calling up a buddy and chatting for 5 or so minutes so I can speak English only when I'm next to cute girls I want to open. I get looks and even approaches from them that way. I run game and usually get a whatsapp that way or met up with them later in the week. This method has worked everytime. Yes the ufsc parties are the place to be especially since I have built a social circle with some of the guys here. One question with tinder are ONS's common or at least SNL's? I got a bite or two on there but I am not sure if they treat the app as a hookup app like back in the states. I'm think I might checkout Porto Alegre my landlord said it's way bigger with beautiful women and I would have good odds. Thanks for the advice. BTW I live in apt close to campus in the master and the other roomate is alost never there so I have place to bring the girls in a decent neighborhood.

Yes absolutely. ONS's or SNL can happen in Floripa, but overall I would say it's less common than in the U.S. The girls on Tinder are down to hookup. If I were you, I would play the "I'm here studying abroad, trying to improve my portuguese" card because I have noticed that girls there are very skeptical and in some cases afraid to make it easy for the gringo guy. Focus solely on getting these girls on a day two. Latinas in general have a stereotype of western guys being sex tourists, so it makes them shell up a bit because they don't wanna feel like sluts or be judged by friends. Keep in mind, Floripa is a small city. A lot of people know each other, and I think you would be surprised at how cliquey it is. it's not super cliquey, but if you are there long enough and meet enough people, you will see what I mean. Word gets around quick.

One other thing, as you know, the logistics on that Island are a mess. When you try to day 2 these girls make it as easy for them as possible. For example, let's say you live in Trindade and she lives in Pantanal (both neighborhoods close to the University) don't expect her to walk or take a bus all the way out to your neighborhood just to get a drink with you. This chick doesn't know you and girls from Floripa are flaky as hell. Find her neighborhood on google maps and find a good bar too meet her at. This will eliminate any objection or flake. The only reason I mention this is because I knew a lot of guys who met a lot of girls, but absolutely sucked at figuring out the logistics for a day two and left a lot of lays behind as a result. You can apply this to pretty much any situation. This should be common knowledge, but the logistics of that place are sooo fucked up that it is worth mentioning.

One really good day two spot on campus that I can think of off the top of my head is called CSC (centro social da cerveja) it is in Carvoeira but on Wednesdays they have two for one caipirinhas and they are deceptively strong Wink. In fact I would recommend this place over meu escritorio or bar da nina, because I can guarantee she will run into friends at those places, and that's not good; not for a first date at least. Once again, you want to make it as easy for her as possible without feeling judged by her friends. Girls there tend to be a bit conservative in my opinion.

RE: Florianopolis, Brazil
Yeah I usually do that at home alsoand dont mind walking or going the extra km haha to ensure the lay. I tell them I'm here for the semester and am thinking about making it a year long study to put them at ease. I have had the same cab driver 3 times so yes it is a small town. I live in Pantanal so I'm close. I realize the girls here are straight forward and I keep it that way also. I'm playing that card and know enough that I have my routine down. They all say sem problemas so I know I'm doing OK. I'm not tooting my horn but I am not a bad looking dude and have ugly duckling syndrome so my cocky funny demeanor is solid. Where should I avoid wasting my time. Also if you are back down here we should link up man. Any info on surround cities town while you traveled down here?

I wish I was there man but I left a while ago. Really want to go back. Might try making a move out there this January.

As far as places I would avoid going, avoid the little hole in the wall bars in lagoa like "casa de noca" and "John Bull". Those places have always been a miss for me and I gave them plenty of opportunities. In fact, I would recommend avoiding Lagoa all together unless there is some sort of large venue there nowadays. If you somehow end up in Lagoa I would recommend just posting up on the streets. Usually there's a ton of people on the streets just walking around at night, and some cute girls running around. At this time of the year though it is usually dead. It'll start to pickup around December. Stick with your bread and butter as long as you can; Centro, and UFSC parties. Once the summer starts the north will have plenty of things going on, but until then, avoid that area also. Btw, once UFSC let's out in January, that area around campus is DEAD as fuck. You might wanna try leaving at the end of the fall semester once your apartment or homestay is over and just grab a short term place for a couple of months in Jurere or lagoa through air bnb. Once the university let's out, the Centro clubs are kind of dead too and you won't have UFSC parties. This is huge, remember I told you that.

Surrounding Areas to Check Out:

Oktoberfest is coming up in Blumenau and you definitely need to check it out. It isn't the best place for pickup due to the logistics and other things but it is cool and worth seeing. If you go, I recommend going when UFSC goes. Apparently UFSC has a weekend when all of the university students go and that would be the best day for sure because it'll increase your chances of meeting girls from UFSC.

Checkout Balneario Camburiu some weekend with some friends. It's a coastal city an hour north of Floripa and it has two nightclubs in a suburb of it called Itajai that are considered some of the best in the world (Warung and Green Valley). Green Valley is top 50 electronic, and Warung is like house music. Warung = Hipster brazilian girl, Green Valley = Patricinha. They are both cool in their own way. Definitely worth a few visits if you're gonna be there two semesters.

RE: Florianopolis, Brazil
I appreciate the guidance and yeah since I have gotten tinder I've already gotten hit up 3 times and the girls are down to Meetup. The I'm studying here for a semester thinking about a year and works real well. The beaches are incredible by the way and I met some germans on the bus so I'm heading up to Blumenau with ocktoberfest next month. 1007 in Centro is damn good I went once and it was loaded with girls who you can open in line since the wait is about and hour. I brought drinks to kill in line since the cover was 40 reals and I didn't neex drink when I was inside haha. I'm actually rolling out before the high season in January gotta head back towards the states around that time for the new semester and going to hit Peru and Colombia on the way back. So unfortunately I won't get to experience this place and all its Glory but being in the University circles is definitely making up for the activity on the island and so far I have no complaints other than I spilled coffee on my shirt. so if anybody has down here I will be down here working on my Portuguese and the locals and wouldn't mine showing peeps around.

RE: Florianopolis, Brazil
Goiania and Manaus. I saw your post in the Colombia Master thread and haven't been to either of these cities because I've only been here for about 3 weeks and I'm trying to establish a good base of operations I have some money put away some travels around different areas cab drivers and including my landlord for my Airbnb tell me that Porto Alegre have some of the more beautiful women and the Gringo appeal does a step further because everyone comes to Florianopolis. Even the cuties that work in the office building next to the school and my study abroad program are from Rio Grande do Sul so it's a must investigate for me but I'm hitting the books hard on my Portuguese because with that extra knowledge you set yourself apart as many have said in other threads especially the Columbian one if you speak their native language decent game and are decent looking which I qualify in both then you'll do just fine so that's the my theory anyway. I don't think there's any data sheets on Goiania yet

Maybe you can actually go there yourself opposed to complaining about a place you've never stepped foot on. (awaiting the lack of Tinder matches card in response.....)

I personally prefer chicks from smaller towns in Santa Catarina opposed to Floripa ones who are either A) big-headed from the big fish/small pond mentality or B) really really anti-social. At least that's been my experiences with them.

The small town Santa Catarina chicks are essentially the types (in my experiences) that like to dress up in nice heels for a fun night out or can be just as satisfied chilling at a boteco (barzinho) doing cheap shit. Really balanced gals that can have fun at different speeds.

On another hand, The Good Life actually lived in Floripa and was able to navigate through the college scene so it was different from me visiting on odd weekends being in Paraná. He therefore met certain calibre of girls I didn't really get much exposure to.

Keep up the good contributions guys.

I spent 6 months there this year and hated every minute of it wishing i was in Rio or Bahia. see more here

Also yeah, when I was there the only girls I dated were from the countryside and they were true bottom of the barrel, but I got desperate. Guys Brazil is an incredible country but don't choose Floripa it i'm telling you guys there are better options I used to work for a company that does tours up and down the coast from Rio to Salvador i've been all over Brazil, Floripa is the hardest place in Brazil not only to game girls but also hard in terms of logistics as well, its not all its cracked up to be. People warned me, I went anyways, dont do it.

The only thing floripa has going for it its relatively safe by Brazil standards, and the girls are all beautiful but you cannot even get near them unless u have a really strong social circle.

Public transport = sucks, the surf is all hype there are no waves, the girls are bitchy, the clubs are outrageously and i mean outrageously priced.

For first timers i owuld recommend Rio 100%, 2nd trip around check out Sao Paulo and the beaches around Bahia like Itacare is a cool place or Pipa.

3rd time when your portuguese is more advanced maybe try a city like belo horizonte if your main purpose is to game or even try Sao Paulo if your more into the hipster intellectual chicks.

if you want to get really sexually frustrated for a few months and sit in traffic and rain all day then I highly recommend Florianopolis. Dodgy Call me salty but head down there for a couple weeks and don't say I didn't tell u so guys ...

Really you can never go wrong with Rio, the beaches are great, the people are friendly it has everything you need. Sometimes there is this urge to find the city thats "better than Rio" but shit man, I really haven't found it yet.

RE: Florianopolis, Brazil
I'm having a good time within my relatively small I have here even in the low season. I'm a firm believer that things aren't good or bad but it's merely your estimation of those things. And that's true with any country small cities are going to have more laid-back chicks that do like to dress up sometimes that's beginner knowledge. I'm going to explore a little bit more of Santa Catarina so if you got any suggestions on small towns in the state I'm all ears

RE: Florianopolis, Brazil
To the guys that have been to Florianopolis and hated it or are opposed to going I totally hear where you guys are coming from. Personally, I'd like to go back and see it for a couple of weeks, but overall if I ever do Brasil again it will be a major metropolitan city like rio, sp, or somewhere in the Northeast. But I don't wanna shit on it and be negative because I had great times there, but I also had my low moments too and I can relate with some of the negative reviews that some guys have had on here.

If you are somebody who wants to go to Brazil for a few weeks, and has never been to Brazil before, avoid Floripa; especially if your portuguese is bad. It just isn't worth it in my opinion. Yeah the girls are hot, but you can find just as hot of girls in the major cities without the attitudes or the high prices to even be in the same room with them. The city can be a pain in the ass (for various reasons listed in above posts)sometimes and there were several times when I was there that I was very bitter about the place and wanted to leave ASAP to a bigger city. After a while I accustomed myself and found my niche.

My experience was a bit different than the average guy that goes because I stayed for almost a year and was tied in with the university as an exchange student. I had something to fall back on, and this is key in that city; you need some kind of niche. I can't even imagine how disappointing it would be to visit Floripa for two weeks in the summer: not knowing anybody, with bad portugues, and staying in some super touristy area expecting to be swimming in hot Brazilian girls. Forget about it. Only doable if your Portuguese is near fluent and you have great game, and with a little bit of luck.

All my Brazilian friends from back home are from Goiana for some reason and they say I would be SWIMMING in pussy in Goiania and based on the fact foreigners never visit there, I Think its worth a shot.

Every Brazilian woman i've met from Goiana has been so fucking super sexy and beautiful, and they haven't been spoiled with hordes or horny foreigners like in Rio.

If anyone is down to check it out in February or something like that i'm down AF. Its actually one of the few places I haven't been. That and Brasilia but I don't think I really care to visit Brasilia. If anyone asks we're there on "journalism" to investigate the culture of Brazil's "interior regions" tard

It's a bit risky to check out an inland city like Goiânia around February due to Carnaval; I'd wait till March or even better April/May.

Carnaval - People (best female talent) are all out on coasts. Either that or somewhere with family.

Before Carnaval - Getting financially and physically ready for vacation to coasts

After Carnaval - Broke as shit and staying in because all that money was spent on Carnaval/New Year's Eve

Overall, Goiânia chicks are much hotter than Brasília ones. There are some hot rich ones in Brasília, but Goiânia has more. I know some hot chicks who have moved to Brasília from other parts of Brazil to work (law, architecture, government position); they dislike it & would rather be back in their hometown. They find a way to cope in Brasília however because they get to "date up" Dodgy

Just goes to show...

RE: Florianopolis, Brazil
I'm a local.. Truth is, logistics are king (duh). But specially here. portuguese it's a must and if you're a gringo your game must be solid..

There are all very solid point's made by all of you guys. Florianopolis can be a good place to hit some high quality pussy, if you have:

Time, Logistics, and a CAR.

Seriously a car will boost your notches by at least 30%. Harambe, you should go to the UFSC parties and be able to pull kinda easily, hookups are usually happening a lot, and sometimes with very little exchange of words, they will come into play for you to screen out girls who are DTF, and then it's basic nightgame and logistics(see having your place and a car). You can bed the girl coming back using the vans if you two live close to campus, but the car it's a best bet.

There is not really much to add on info on the city and how it works, if you're expecting to come here for a week and bang tons of chicks, forget about it, unless you're a baller on the high season and even then it's not really that easy because there are a fucking lot of jacked, tall, rich and good loking mofos walking around at jurere that time of the year..

If any of you guys are down here, and need some help with your português. I'll gladly help a fellow roosh v forum member out.

As to game.. Well not really much I can do besides being the "native" wingman, that actually helps a lot because as mentioned before, most girls don't speak english and gives you kind of a social proof. My game level is begginer and I am in "monk mode" really focused on my fitness and studies, and not really going out very often, waiting for the summer to kick in, which doesn't help much. But I'm down to grab a beer, and learn/wing...

Send me a PM.

Cheers

EDIT: Santa Catarina smaller towns are great for finding a girl to wife up, sure there are the sloots but they bang the guys who have the most social proof (the guys who get the more "famous" girls in the town). If you wants bangs, Balneario Camboriu is the city for you.. But the state is beautiful and there are some cool things to do around here if you like nature, and are a chill guy..

Hey. I just got to rendeiras. Came to a gringo party for 15 reals. Girl to guy ratio is atrocious but all the girls here are cute. Lots of foreigners.
I'm a really good wing. I'll throw girls at you all night. If you're down to go pimp it, hit me up.

RE: Florianopolis, Brazil
Summary of my 12 days in Floripa right before carnival:
if you like day game, stay by Praia mole/galheta.
If you like night game stay in centro. Renderias bars are 85% dudes; 100% AVOID those bars. Overall I'd say people here don't drink much or get too wild at the bars. So don't expect easy pulls from high buying temperature like you get in Rio Carnaval/Europe/Asia/USA
Pacha is closed but clubs now are:
Posh, devassa, terraza, Jivago, 1007, p12

Monday: went to a gringo party in rendeiras. Few cute girls but way too many dudes. Got a few phone numbers but no girls were in wild party mode.

Wednesday: went to Praia galheta during the day. Ran around naked and talked to some beautiful topless girls. Highly recommend

Wednesday night: came to a party at Santa club which was posted at the hostel. $R15 entry. Not worth it

Thursday: another great day at the beach talking to stunners.
Tried casa de noca and John bull pub at night. Both were packed and had bands, but hey were charging cover and from the window only dudes and a few busted girls inside. That's strike 4 for rendeiras night life.

Fri: went to a ghetto highschool party. It sucked.

Saturday: went to p12 for $R120. It was OK. A lot of stuck up groups but def a few approachable girls. Again the beach is better and free!!

Sunday, went to 1007 downtown. It was a gay club with electronic music. It was the first time I actually had fun at night here. Several cuties & All the girls were super friendly and mostly straight. R$25. Beware.. eventually the girl's gay dude friends will try to steal you from her. Got several solid numbers. No 9s or 10s but 6-7s and a couple 8s

Wed: came to Fields in Centro. $R50 if you sign up on the website before 7pm and arrive before 00:30 (it's already crowded). You have to wear pants and the girls are all dressed up.Good looking girls. Ice cold AC and huge smoking area where you can show off your accent Smile
Pretty young crowd. Most groups are 3-4ppl (and many groups are only girls.) Similar vibe as p12 where people only stick to their group and never seem to talk to anyone else. The music is called "sertanejo universitario" or "country:" it's kinda like shitty happy go lucky rock music. From what I've seen the music in Brazil doesn't have much energy and doesn't get the crowds up and moving like club music in the rest of the world ha. Lots of ppl in the crowd look bored as fuck. Reminds me of Newport Beach ha. At 2am they switched to dance music tho and things got more lively. Overall very difficult venue.

last few days I skipped any night life. Was meeting enough girls at the beach and hostel to fulfill my needs.

Bonus tip: Google maps doesn't work for bus schedules here. You have to download an app called moovit. Blue buses cost $R3.90 and yellow busses cost R$8.50 but have reclining seats and A/c

Tip#2 bradesco ATMs have no fee!! My PayPal debit card worked over R$1200 at a time.

Someone above posted: "Floripa is where hot girls go for attention, not recommended for travelers. Rio, Brasilia and the Nordeste if you want some real action."
I 100% agree with this statement after 12 days here (10 days too many)
I had a million times more fun in Rio.

Cheetah, I'd say yes the Brasileros in Floripa still are used to kissing fast (if they've had a couple drinks), but it's MUCH MUCH MUCH harder to find them here than in Rio.

On my way...... 10 days in Florianopolois, Language is hand cuffing me. Large social circle that speak English so that should help. Fluent in Spanish, but It's night in day.

Anyone on the ground right now in Floripa? I will be coming the end of May for 5 days or so. Not sure if I should book a place near centro or jurere, any recommendations since it's off season?

Any updates on venues, places to pick up?

I will be renting a car and planning to drive around the whole island to see it and hit up the beaches. Maybe do a hike and get some nice photos.

Lagoa da Conceição is good at night, full of mini-clubs and bars. Lontra club in the center had good funk parties. I don't know if the clubs of the Jurerê Internacional are still running shows, but just look at their schedulle: P12 or Parador 12, Donna, Aqcua, Café de la Musique, etc

I'm noticing a bunch of girls posting photos at this place so it will be on my to do list!

Thinking about driving up to Balneário Camboriú also to check it out and spend a night. Do you guys think it's worth it?
