Climate and Average Weather in Brazil

The tropical and subtropical climate makes Brazil an all-year round destination. The Brazilian winter lasts for only three months from June to August. From December to February it's summer and most rain is seen in these months. Most parts of Brazil have moderate annual rainfall of between 900 and 1600 mm (38 and 61 in). The temperature varies within a year with monthly averages in winter between 13 and 18 degrees Celsius (55 and 64 degrees Fahrenheit). During summer temperatures can reach 30 to 40 degrees Celsius (86 to 104 degrees Fahrenheit) in Rio de Janeiro and in regions in the south, this accompanied by frequent showers creates a rather heavy humidity.

Even though Brazil is an all-year round destination we choose June to September as the best time to travel to Brazil. In most of the country this is the period when there is less precipitation, the temperatures are somewhat tempered and the travel conditions are at its best.
