South Brazil - when to go

The dry season in the south runs from March to November, whereas December to February are wet and rainy.

It can get cool in the evenings during the Brazilian winter from June to September. In this period conditions in Rio and the surrounding area are similar to those of northern Europe in the summertime: there are cloudy days with some rainfall, but also periods with plenty of sun. As you continue travelling south, temperatures will be lower during this time of year.

Central Brazil - when to go

Both The Pantanal and the Amazon can be visited throughout the year. The best time to visit the Amazon is in July and August, but as you would expect in a rainforest, it’s hot and humid all year.

The Pantanal region has a consistent temperature throughout the year. Most rain falls from December to March and the best time to see animals is during the dry season from April/ May to October. Temperatures rarely drop below 20°C, even in the dead of winter (June to July).

East Coast Brazil - when to go

Tropical north eastern Brazil has two seasons, but it’s difficult to distinguish the two. The average temperature is 26 ° to 30 ° C all year round. During the months January to June there may be a nice refreshing rain shower or two. Along the coast the humidity is relatively high and the sun is bright. The sea breeze usually makes spending time by the sea very comfortable.
