Climate and Best Time to Visit Brazil

Brazil is an extraordinarily large country where you can experience different climatic conditions on your journey. While the North and Northeast are dominated by hot and humid tropical climate, travelers in the South of the country experience rather mild weather with moderate temperatures and seasons. When planning a vacation in Brazil, attention must be given to the region and particular season that would be most suitable to you. Since Brazil is located in the southern hemisphere, summer and winter occur at the opposite times of year according to our orientation in the northern hemisphere.
The subtropical climate in the South of Brazil is high in humidity. The summer months (December-February) are hot and humid and winter (June-August) is dry and cool, even cold sometimes. The climate in the Southeast of the country is similar to that in the South, but with a much milder winter. The hot and muggy summer in this region is particularly suitable for a beach getaway.
The central region of Brazil is characterized by tropical climate that is not influenced by the ocean. Very hot temperatures can occur year round, with occasional decreases in the winter months (June-August).
The tropical climate in the North of Brazil, home of the Amazon Rainforest, is strongly influenced by the equator with very high humidity. Constant rainfall is to be expected throughout the region, which is especially strong during the rainy season.
The Northeast of Brazil is also native to tropical climate, which offers ideal conditions for a beach getaway in one of the many seaside resorts along the coast year round. The difference between the dry and rainy seasons is more pronounced the further north the resort is located.
In general, you can enjoy your vacation in Brazil year round. The heavy rainy seasons in the North and Northeast, as well as the rather cool winter in the South, should be avoided if possible, depending on your personal preferences.

Information on the climate tables: The daily high and low temperature values refer to average measurements of more extreme cases. It is therefore very unlikely that it will be hotter or colder than the specified temperature values in the respective month.
