Prices during this period are significantly higher, and there are not always enough rooms in the hotels.

So if you are interested in visiting Rio de Janeiro for the festivities, it is highly recommended to reserve accommodations several months before traveling.

Rio de Janeiro is quite hot from December to March, so the off-seasons from April to June and from August to November could be ideal times for your trip. It can also be rather cool in July.

The Amazon Rainforest has high humidity year round, and the average temperature there is about 27 degrees; however, it can go up to about 35 degrees.

The period from December to March is a little rainier than the rest of the year; however, as a rule, the weather becomes warmer when it’s raining – but not for more than an hour.

The Pantanal (wetlands): the best time to tour is from June to August when the water level is lower and lagoons are more accessible.

Northeast beaches, including Resif and El Salvador, are terrific places to go as they are sunny and warm throughout the year.
