Should I hire a car while I am in Florianópolis?

Florianópolis is located on a fairly large island, which would take about 2 hours to drive from top to bottom (depending on the traffic, which can get pretty hectic during summer!)

That being said, there is a good bus network which covers most of the island, as well as smartphone apps like Uber and EasyTaxi, which are quick, cheap ways to get around.

If you want to be free to discover the hidden gems on the island, you will need a car, but if you want to keep costs down, we recommend just hiring one for a week or two, or perhaps just on the weekends.

If you do decide you want to rent a car, we recommend Avis and Localiza. Both have offices at Florianópolis airport.
