    Lucas, I've lived in South America for over 20 years, most of it in Brazil. The cost of living is quite low in USD with the current exchange rate. If I were thinking of moving to Brazil and keeping a boat here, I'd look at Ilhabela (an island on the coast of São Paulo). I lived there for 3 years. It's a delight. There are other places as well- Brazil has a long coast, but the coast of Rio and São Paulo offers the best sailing in terms of islands, coves and thousands of great beaches and anchorages. There are no hurricanes here, so it's year-round sailing. Use google maps to check out the coast between Ilhabela and Rio. When you get a better idea of your plans, let me know and I can provide more specif information.

    You can comfortably live and sail here for under USD 1,000 a month (excluding health insurance and lengthy marina stays, which are not necesary given the MANY protected anchorages).
