Climate and Best Time to Visit Jalapao, Brazil
To help you plan your trip effectively, we have summarized below some information on regional climate and ideal times to travel to Jalapao.
The tropical climate in the state of Tocantins and the adjacent Jalapao State Park is driven by two seasons: the rainy season from November to April and the dry season from May to October. The amount of rain varies from highs of 220 mm (8.7 in) in December and January to lows of zero in July.
The temperature in Jalapao remains tropically warm throughout the year with an average daytime reading of 25 °C (77 °F). During the dry season, the climate becomes more desert-like with the thermometer rising up to 40 °C (104 °F) at midday and falling down to 12 °C (54 °F) at night.

For many travelers, the first months of the rainy season as well as the transition months directly after the rainy season are the most pleasant, when the first hints of humidity paint a fresh coating of green onto the landscape.
Best Time to Visit Jalapao
The Jalapao area is an attractive destination year round. During the rainy season from November to April, heavy rains and storms can occur, rendering some of the roads almost impassable and obstructing wildlife observation. In addition, the waters are inundated with sediments and thus do not show their famous turquoise blue color. During the rainy season the entire landscape is green, while during the dry season the wide stretch of the Cerrado terrain becomes very dry. In June, July and August it hardly rains at all and it gets very hot during the day.
