It depends on what you like. I know lots of people on lots of neighborhoods. The best thing is to list what you want, gym, beach, coworking, etc. And then find places close to these things. I think close to centro will be the easiest to get around places. If you are in Campeche you can probably speak English to the people in the cafรฉ.

Can someone recommend a prepaid SIM card that also works in the rest of LatAm?
luskira 29d
What's the best for gym beach and coworking? I can do with having to get an uber to the beach if coworking and gym are nearby
jawills 29d
Honestly haven't found a good coworking place yet :grimacing:. A lot of people like Campeche because it's close to the beach, but complain that they need to Uber everywhere. I think Centro is good for cafes + gym, but you would need to Uber to the Beach. I live in Sรฃo Josรฉ and its great, but it's a 30m Uber to the nearest nice beach (Campeche). I also don't go to the beach that much so it is what it is
luskira 29d
Yeah I would only go to the beach on the weekends, so it's not a big deal if I have to take an uber to go
dschulman 29d
A good cowork space is also important to me. I had that there were a fair number scattered in different neighborhoods, but I guess this is something I need to look into more.

I am also interested in neighborhoods where there will be more solo travellers who are staying for a few weeks to a few months,
Airalo has Latam sim card
It's expensive, $60 / 5GB, but it is what it is

Hey everyone. landing in Sao Paulo for a few days Nov 11. Any good hostel recommendations with private rooms?
vike27 28d
The Impact Hub coworking space is nice and in Beira Mar norte in centro. There is a nice high end gym I like on top floor of beira mar shopping with nice ocean view. Most long term expats end up in centro long term. Also internet will be better quality in centro and more access to high quality gyms and less traffic in the evenings compared to the island. The island is great for the beach but I just go to the beach on the weekends so I dont mind taking an uber on the weekend to go there when all else is much more accessible in centro.
luskira 28d
uihxowoj is centro before the long bridge?
vike27 28d

Before the bridge has coqueiros, which has some amazing restaurants. Most of the nomads I talk to don't know it exists

Coqueiros is good also, but prefer centro. But its a great lower cost option. A bit farther from the beach though.
Yes! Hobi Hostel is amazing, they have private rooms, lots of events with cool people and the owner will make you feel at home ๐Ÿ™‚
lagavulin 27d
Thanks for the reco!!
wugge 27d
If it helps, here's what I did:
Rent motorbike there (~300$/month)
Cowork there (don't remember price but super cheap and absolutely fantastic owner)
Gym there />
First had an Airbnb close to the gym, than moved over to Barra de Lagoa into a hostel. Given I had the coworking space it was quiet amazing, Hostel&Coworking works well for me if you have good sleep ๐Ÿ™‚
Selina as well is great!

Anyone been to Pipa and positively recommend it? Iโ€™m being a little lazy by asking here before doing proper research. How is the overall vibe? It was a sleepy fishing village discovered by surfers in the 70s, and has now blown up a bit due to tourism? Can I expect a similar vibe to similar surf towns in other countries in Latin America, but more Brazilian?

How is the surf? Would be thinking of going in January. I typically ride a mid length board and my ideal wave size is 1-1.5m.

How big / small is it? Decent nomad (working) amenities? Fun vibe? Beautiful place? Touristy? More Domestic or international tourists?

Have spent good time in Brazil before, but not yet to Pipa.

Hey. Yeah, Pipa is a dreamy city, I'd say. It has tons of positive vibes, and being extremely honest up here, a lot of high people everywhere. There are a lot of great parties directly into the beach. And yes, it is expensive since it is called the Love Beach.
It is a small city, or maybe mid-sized. Not big at all.

Definitely walk around here to feel the pulse of the city. :)

๐Ÿ›ฌ vgjxyjrrtbtzf just arrived in Presidente Figueiredo, #brazil
I don't know much about surfing, but have you thought about Baia Formosa? Itโ€™s near Pipa.

It's a peaceful place with few tourists, a real fishing village vibe, and you might even run into Italo Ferreira catching some waves. He is still living there.

The locals are really friendly and welcoming.
Hi! From Rio airport to copacabana/ipanema is it okay to take uber? Or should I book a transfer?

Follow up โ“ does Uber work okay around the city?
Anyone in Floripa? Ping me, and letโ€™s hangout today or tommorow
yes and yes
Cool, thanks!
jlamenza 19d
uber works just fine
I'm in the midst of planning a trip to Floripa, and I could use some advice. I'm super excited to spend three months there starting in January, but here's the deal โ€“ I'm not a fan of driving. I wanted to pick your brains and see if you think it's a smart move to set up shop in centro and simply rely on Uber when I need to get around the island.

I should mention that I lived in Rio for a year without a car, living in zona sul, and got by just fine with taxis, buses, and the metro, though I recognize they're very different cities. Any insights or recommendations you have would be a huge help! prayskin-tone-3
dschulman 18d
I'm also going to Floripa and have the same question since I also prefer not driving. My current thinking it to stay in 2-3 different neighborhoods over my time there and rely on walking, buses, and Ubers.
dschulman 18d
I've seen other people mention that they rented motorcycles or scooters for their entire stay. That's not for me, but I might rent some type of motorized vehicle for a few days here or there, or maybe a bicycle.
Thanks for your response! I just found your post, and according to one commenter, it looks like Beira Mar Norte might be my best bet.
cbilling 18d
I have spent about 4 months in Floripa and am looking to get back there in Feb for 5-6 months more!

I have rented a car each time I have gone and do find that the best to be honest - and it is an easy city to drive around actually.

A bicycle can be helpful but there are a lottt of fun trips near Floripa that are best done by car or driving the full island is about 40min in a car without traffic.

Ubers can take a while but 99 is another taxi option.

But if you really don't want a car I would actually recommend Campeche. It has a lot of good restaurants, bars and beaches and is around a 20min Uber into Centro. Has a lot of new build apartments etc as well you can rent on AirBnB.

Ive sent a lot of messages about my thoughts on best places to live in Floripa.

On Uber, I've had no issues going to/from campeche, Lagoa, centro, Sรฃo Josรฉ. Normally it is easy to get an Uber to the sides of the island (Jurerรช, any place south or the airport or Campeche.) getting a return Uber is more difficult.

In terms of wait, it seems like a normal wait, sometimes people are there immediately, other times you have to wait 10 mins.

The only time it is difficult to get an uber is rush hour around 4 or 5. You will need to wait till 6 or 7.
lagavulin 17d
In Rio actually
Floripa's public transportation is really good ouside peak hours. You can use the yellow bus that is more confortable and has A/C. We have an app to see the hours and routes of the buses but dunno if they have an english version.

Uber and 99 are other great option to go through the island. I recommend you to stay not only in Beirmar (center of the city), but in the North and South of the island, because you will enjoy more the local culture and you will see that they are very different.

Take care... it is kinda dangerous in a lot of central parts of the city. Reminds me a lot Cartagena de las Indias, en Colombia. Great and bad vibe at the same time. But with care, it is a charmy city with tons of culture!! โค๏ธ ๐Ÿ™

Hi there! If you wanna grab a beer this week, feel free to DM!
Do you Brazilian guys know how the Digital Nomad Visa works in Europe? Is it for each country... Is it for the EU...?

For tourists, we can stay for 90 days, and then be 90 out of the UE, right?

I'm not sure if this is the right channel for this ๐Ÿ˜…
gaborsch 15d
Probably not the right channel, yes. Which country's DN visa do you mean? You should probably post there. As a rule of thumb, a specific country's non-immigrant visa only applies to that country. So outside of that country, the 90 out of 180 days rule still applies. Enforcement is another matter, but if you somehow do get caught, it's probably bad news for you.
Yeah, I got it. I tought it was different.

So, each country has its rules, and it doesn't really matter the origin of the person, right?

Thank you

Well if it's a visa you have to apply for to get it then no, in theory it makes no difference where you are from.
pessoal, any recommendations on what neighborhood to stay during carnaval in recife?
rm 14d
Ultimately I think the best option depends on your lifestyle. If you really like being close to a beach and plan to do a lot of surfing etc don't stay in Centro. If you're more of a casual beach goer, I think Centro is better.

That said, if you're staying there for 3 months I'd say book a place just for a week or two, check out a few neighborhoods and then decide once you're better acquainted with the island

Balneรกrio Camboriรบ is another good nomad destination in the region where you can do everything by foot.

Hey there! I'm from Recife and I'd say it really depends on which kind of party you are planning to get by. I prefer the Olinda carnival, which is more on the streets, with small bands playing music and tons of ppl dancing around, following the music. This is not so common there in Recife, which has more concerts in parts like Recife Antigo.
Regarding the Recife neighborhoods, I would recommend some parts in between Olinda and Recife, to stay closer to the fun part of the city. Sorry to don't bring neighborhood names, but I'm not good in remember those.
