It all really depends on where you are going, what you want to do, and what type of weather you enjoy.

Brazil is the largest nation in South America, and its climate varies from one part of the country to the other.

There are also a number of colorful national events that you may want to time your visit around - with Rio's Carnival procession being a great example.

When is the best time of year to visit Brazil?
In the north (the area nearest to the equator) the best months to visit are:

  • June
  • July
  • August
These are the coolest months of the year, and also the months with the fewest tourists (which means you will find excellent uncrowded beaches during this time).

By the way, if you want a relaxing holiday, I'd advise you to stay clear of Rio altogether. It's just full of crime - the north is where the locals go for a holiday.

Brazil has opposite seasons from America, so when it is summer in the States, it is winter in Brazil! This is the same with spring and fall.

Brazilians typically go on vacation from the last two weeks of December to the first two weeks of February, which is considered the 'peak' season and is thus the most expensive time to purchase a flight.

What's the weather like in Brazil? What's the best season to go?
In the south- I'd suggest avoiding the summer months, because, from June onward, days and nights become quite cool.

Spring is the best time to visit anywhere in Brazil, but especially the south. It has nice weather, but is not too hot or muggy like the more northern or central parts.

In the east- well I like to visit Sao Paulo and surrounding cities any time of the year! Weather is not much of a factor, because the east of the country is also known as the industrial heart of Brazil.

The west of the country is still mostly undeveloped (especially in comparison with the rest of the country), and is quite rural.

The weather in the west matches that in the eastern and central parts. The terrain is pretty rough, similar to the 'old west' of America and far removed from typical Brazilian life and the sprawling urban areas. Search for the Pantanal and you will see what I mean.

In the center of Brazil, the weather is moderate to muggy in summer and fall (December to May), winter is cool (June to early September), and spring is nice too (from October to mid December).

In mid-October, all the flowers and plant-life are in full bloom, and there are spring showers too. In my opinion, it's the most beautiful time to be in the country.

What's it like travelling to Brazil?
Actually, in my six trips to Brazil, I have never found the weather as unbearable or extreme as it sometimes can be in America.

I lived in the central part of Brazil during the summer and spring of 2000, and it was very easy to acclimatize to the temperatures.

If you plan to go to the Amazon Rain Forest, I would suggest you make a serious study of the predicted weather via the Internet, as it is unpredictable from year to year.

Be sure you like rain and bugs if you go, though - you will see plenty of both!

Regardless of the weather, if you have the opportunity to visit Brazil - go do it! You will love it.
Just be sure to try the delicious Guarana soda. Yum!

Brazil is one of the most popular tourist destinations, attracting tourists with different interests. There really is something to offer for everyone.

Depending on the area of interests and purpose, the ideal time to visit Brazil could vary.

Tourists interested in the Carnival would do best to visit in February, which is during their summer. There are multitudes of tourists and youngsters at this time.

Tourists who would prefer to avoid the hordes of tourists and holidayers would do well to visit any time between March to April.

This is also the best time of the year if you have budget restrictions, because airline tickets are much cheaper at this time of the year, and the beaches are as beautiful and as much fun as at any other time of the year.

For tourists with a fascination for history the best time to visit would be June-August, during their winter, to avoid the scorching heat.
