Seeking advice from people living in or familiar with the ES Coast in Brasil for a relocation trip I'm planning, from Campos dos Goytacazes (RJ) TO Vitoria (ES), including Guarapari, Vila Velha (and any other villages you may know of or recommend).

Am interested in this area as it's not a typical focus for most tourists traveling through Brasil (and I'm not typical)!

Am looking for the following info in your posts:
  • How these areas are effected by mudslides as a life factor
  • Community Life + People
  • Prefer a microclimate that's subtropical (vs tropical) in SA Summer months (i.e. milder, dryer); Breeze from South; Good Sunshine (vs clouds, fog)
  • Shark attacks
  • Prefer smaller cities with good services or villages outside a major one
  • Local produced food, seafood; great community markets
  • Any of these areas attracting people fleeing the complications of the larger cities like Florianópolis is now experiencing?
  • Euro Expat communities?
  • Any other interests, issues or insights?
Thanks for your perspectives!

I don't know that area very well...

Vila Velha is part of the Great Vitoria metropolitan area, so it's a very urban area.

Guarapari has only 108,120 inhabitants, so it's a more "calm" place.
