Same goes for concrete jungle Brasilia for me. Because people are different they prefer different places to live, it's not to us to decide for OP, just to give some inside information, but he should come and see for his own eyes anyway before making decision. You simply can't make it based on internet forum.

17Beach, good night life and also a local tech scene?
You have just described Florianopolis.
Florianopolis is a tech pole in southern Brazil with many software developers. In fact my dad works as a programmer for a Israeli company in Florianopolis.
In the city you can find the Sapiens Park and the Federal University of Santa Catarina, both aimed at improving technology.

20#19 Town of 50k people surrounded by woods and rivers, that's why Paraty feels right for me. I hate big towns.

23This whole thread seems odd.
Someone asked, correctly, why the OP is even coming to Brazil if he can work from anywhere. He hasn't said whether it's a long duration move, or a relatively short one. His interest in extracurricular activities seems greater than his need for efficient technical circumstances. Nothing about the kind of accommodation he prefers. Cost appears to be of little concern. Language likewise.
Is he angling for investment information, or tourist promotion? Quem sabe? Mas acho que cheiro uma ratazana.

28Well of course there is a different perspective of living in a place and visiting a place, but it doesn't change a fact that I would hate in Brasilia. And once again it's not about you or me. Now let's close this off-topic.

29Not sure what plata's point is, but 50,000 was the total homicide rate in 2010, not just shootings, about 25 per 100,000 by population, although few involved foreigners. Don't understand why he would compare this to a limited sector of another (much smaller) country but in total the comparative statistic for Peru was 10 per 100,000, not great but much better obviously.
To answer dakims' question my choice has to be Rio, yes it's expensive but there's nowhere else quite like it, and as in any country there's one city that's the cultural centre & anywhere else seems a tad provincial by comparison.
