Where to go when - our guide to Brazil

Salvador Brazil

The weather in Brazil is wide and varied

Brazil’s territory occupies half a continent, so the weather conditions vary substantially over both space and time. When you choose to go will not only depend on the weather - there are festivals, wildlife spotting opportunities, local holiday times and other considerations to bear in mind.
Nature lovers visiting the Pantanal will do well to choose the period from April to November, while the Amazon can be visited at any time. If you love a party atmosphere you can choose to visit Rio or Salvador in February for Carnival – or skip that time, and the Brazilian holiday season in January and July, if you prefer peace and quiet. For hiking inland from Salvador, June to September offers the driest conditions. The beaches of the south are tempting from December to March, while in the cool winter you might spot whales there. Beach time in Bahia further north is most agreeable from April to October, with sunny but not overly hot days.
