Best time to visit Brazil

For many travelers, the best time to travel to Brazil is during the summer months from December to March. The choice of month may depend on the carnival in Rio de Janeiro or the rain expectations in the Amazon. The regions you visit also determine the best time to travel to Brazil.

Winter lasts from June to September, but the further north you go, the higher the temperature and humidity. In fact, the Northeast is too hot to have winters. Brazil is a year-round travel destination made up of several climate extremes. But none of them are severe enough to discourage you from traveling to any part of the country at any given time.

Fortunately, the sea temperature is pleasant between 27°C and 30°C throughout the year.
