Brazil Custom Tour
Best Time to Go
Brazil has five major climatic subtypes: equatorial, tropical, semiarid, highland tropical, and temperate. In general, winter lasts from June to August, with the coldest temperatures south of Rio. Summer runs December to March, with stifling humidity in the far south. Brief rains are common, given the tropical climate, but the dry interior has fewer months of heavy rainfall. The Amazon Basin is the wettest area, and near the mouth of the river it rains year-round. The heaviest rainfall is from December to May. Around Recife, the wettest time is May to August. Further south in Rio, the wet season is November to April. From July to December, it is possible to drive to the Pantanal.
