Sao Paulo would be a close second, simply because it's extremely massive and diverse. It's the type of city where you can see all sorts of different cultures and people, and where there's always some crazy **** going on. Even though I'm not really a city person, the whole concrete jungle chaos vibe it gives seems appealing sometimes.
I have a Mexican friend who went to Curitiba to study Portuguese, he never came back. He has been there 5 years and loves it.

It's most of Brazil really hot?

I don't like hot weather, I like temperate.

Yes. There is almost no temperate climate in Brazil. Summers are hot everywhere in Brazil; winters are only moderately cold (seldom under 5°C) in most of southern states, in the city of São Paulo, and in Serra da Mantiqueira, a mountain range extending through the limits of states of São Paulo, Minas Gerais e Rio de Janeiro. All the rest of the country is hot all the year.

The highest locations in Santa Catarina and Rio Grande do Sul experience snowfalls every year in the winter and sometimes even in the autumn, but that region is scarcely populated, with only few towns and villages.

In my town temperatures above 30° is rare.
Most of the time it's between 12° and 20°, but I don't like because it's too much cloudy and rainy. Very few sunny days.

Higher towns not close to the sea have cooler temperatures but more sunny days like Diamantina (MG), Campina Grande (PB) and Brasília (Brasília is too dry during winter).

Southern cities use to be cold during winters and hot during summers. Higher cities in the South like Caxias do Sul (RS) and Curitiba (PR) don't get hot usually but are too cold during winters.

I really like weather in South America's pacific coast

Not as hot, with blue skies and more of a mild California type weather.

Venezuela for example is pretty stuffy and muggy, while Colombia's highland weather is pretty Mediterranean with long sunny days and then massive spell of rain that lasts an hour or two only to clear up again.

Probably the ones in Minais Gerais; Ouro Preto, Belho Horizonte (incorrect spelling?) and the little ones like Diamantina.
Plus:
Olinda
Fortaleza
Salvador
Recife
Curitiba

Of course Rio, SP and Brasilia are on the list but I'm not as intrigued by them as I'm by the aforementioned.

Saudade!
