Is that you? Eyes on Criciúma

March 2008 1754 visitors flicked through 2800 pages here on Enjoy Food & Travel.
Feedburner, my excellent statistics program shows that I have visitors on all continents. In weekly articles I will find out where my readers live. Between March 7th and March 14th I had one visitor in Criciúma in Brazil. How can you get there and what are there to see on this location?

Criciúma, Brazil

Founded: 1880, by Italian immigrants
Area: 209,8 km²
Population: 190 923

How to get there?

You can get to Criciúma by travelling to Florianópolis, 145 km north east of Criciúma. I easily found that Air France / TAM Brazilian Airlines offers a round trip ticket from Oslo to Florianópolis in May 2008 at NOK 8440 (€1000) all included (ebookers). The trip will take you around 30 hours, as you will have to wait to change planes twice, first at Charles De Gaulle (Paris), and then at Guarulhos International (Sao Paolo), in order to get to Florianópolis. From here there are 145 kilometres (117 miles) to Criciúma.

Where to stay?

I have tried persistently to find and book a local hotel, but have only found rates on one.

At Ibis Criciúma hotel there
"are 110 air-conditioned rooms and a meeting room for guests on a business. trip. It also has a restaurant, a bar serving snacks 24-24 and secure private outdoor parking." They offer rooms for 75 BRL (€27) a night, all included.

What to see?

I have browsed through the net and tried to find what to see in Criciúma, without finding any sights. Except if you love soccer. The city has a good team playing in the Brazilian National league. Maybe you can enjoy a good match.

Dear blogger,
I saw you post about Criciuma, Brazil.
It wasn't me you visitor, but i tumbled across you blog because "Enjoy" is a local pub, to wich I was looking for the phone number.
As you were wondering, there's quite a few hotels in Criciuma, but Ibis is the only international chain in town. Criciuma is known for coal mining, ceramic and plastic industries. If you are interested in learning more please contact me on
best regards
