It's located close to Argentina and Paraguai, besides cities like Foz do Iguaçu and Ametista. Also made devise with another Brazilian state, Rio Grande do Sul and in this divisa we have a beautiful Tyrolean over Uruguay River.

The city has a strong economy, around five universities, and a beautiful downtown. The night is very heretic with several pubs and clubs to visit. Also his pleasant climate in summer and the winter cold brings for town turist from all around the world.

But mostly, here we have a warm welcome, as people in Brazil are lovely and receptive. You can walk around the street or go to a supermarket and people are friendly and speak to you about little things in the daily routine.

Also we have some big-city benefits, like shopping mall, movies and more, combined with facility of locomotion of a small town.

Chapecó is a mix of contrasts just waiting for being explored!
