Well, I don't mean to brag, but readers of the British edition of Condé Nast Traveller were just told a little "secret" that was said long ago on this site: Florianópolis is a gorgeous island, and if you go, Ponta dos Ganchos is THE place to stay. The magazine says: "For a long time, Uruguay's Punta del Este was the St Tropez of South America. Now, the beautiful party people are heading for Florianópolis (or 'Floripa'), the island-based capital of the state of Santa Catarina, south of São Paolo. Apart from the attractions of 42 beaches, the island's cosmopolitan blend of modernity and rusticity gives it a certain charm."
