This thread is inspired by another thread on here.

But made me think...quite a few people in Miami have had experience with Brazil. Most are probably in Miami because of money or jobs or whatever else..

But let's just say you were to retire...or you were European with no real connection to being in Florida. Maybe your job could transfer you...whatever the case.

Would you prefer to be in Miami or Brazil?

I also chose Fortaleza/Recife...mostly because both BEACH destinations. I could have chosen Rio de Jainero as well. I guess you can click Brazil for that as well.

Also, I spent six months in Brazil - Sao Paulo, Rio, and briefly Salvador, Curitiba, and Brasilia.

I would have LOVED to have gone up to the Northeast! Would have loved to checked out Fortaleza, Recife, Joao Pessoa, Sao Luis, Maceio, Natal, etc. If you HAVE been there....would love to hear some comparisons between Miami and South Florida. Whatever information you have.

Nothing against Brazil or any other country, but unless something major happens, I don't plan on living or retiring outside the US.

I wanna enjoy the fruits of my hard labor one day in the country that I was born in, raised to love and sometimes even hate--the good old U S of A.

Why would I travel to some other country if I haven't even seen all of the states? I'm dying to travel outside of Miami and will likely be doing so when I retire in 40 years.

Did you know that Fortaleza, in Brazil, is one of the "sister cities" of Miami?

Many people in Fortaleza usually travel to Miami, a city that is certainly an inspiration to Fortaleza. Fortaleza has many "Miami-inspired" buildings and businesses.

^^ Wow, I think I had seen these pictures at SkyscraperCity before...

Fortaleza is not bigger than Miami (I am from Fortaleza).

Miami metro area is something amazing, more than 150 kilometers north-south, from North Palm Beach to Coral Gables.

Fortaleza metro area has no more than 40 kilometers of northeast-southwest extension. But Fortaleza is more dense, and the density causes the impression of being a larger city. But it's just an impression! The reason is because Miami is a more "suburban" city.

Fortaleza is in another country. Might as well compare Miami to Bali while we're at it...

Yeah, I'd want to live in Brazil and have to worry about getting robbed/kidnapped/caught in the crossfire/etc by drug lords every waking hour.

Plus, sub-standard health and law enforcement. I'm sorry, but a third world country is no place to retire to.

Mr. BlueBlueBlue, I live in Fortaleza, my entire life I have lived here, and I was mugged just ONE time and kidnapped ZERO times. Nobody in my family was ever kidnapped, nor anyone that I know. In my entire life I just remember one case of kidnapping in Fortaleza, seven years ago.

I think you probably know lots of people in Miami who got robbed at least one time in life...

You need get more information about Brazil before spreading incorrect ideas. Fortaleza is not Rio de Janeiro.
