There isn’t a best time to visit Brazil – it’s a warm, year-round destination, with most of the country located in the tropics. It’s made up of several climatic extremes, none of which are severe enough to deter travel to an area at any given time.

Across the country, the warmest months are November to March – perfect for enjoying New Year and Carnival celebrations. The northeastern coast experiences some rain in June and July, but usually only in the form of afternoon showers.

The driest months in The Pantanal are between April and October, but like in the Amazon, its wetter months offer distinct wildlife spotting opportunities and experiences. Both rainforests are humid, with temperatures rarely dropping below 68°F.

I love to visit Brazil in July or August. It’s slightly cooler in Rio and the mornings can be beautifully fresh. It's also a great time to visit the Pantanal and perhaps end with a beach stay on the Green Coast, which is quieter than the hotter summer months.

Month-by-month guide to traveling in Brazil

Ilha Grande, Brazil

Visiting Brazil in June - July

June and July are lovely times to visit the Green Coast between Rio and Sao Paulo; evenings are cooler, but the air is fresh and the sea still warm. Bahia's rainy season tends to begin in June, but it is usually easy to plan your day around the one or two showers that arrive in the afternoon.
