Climate and Average Weather in Brazil

Its 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 the majority of rainfall is seen during these months. Most parts of Brazil have a moderate annual precipitation of between 900-1600mm (38-61 inches) of water.

The temperature varies throughout the 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, accompanied by frequent showers. This can create quite a lot of humidity.

Even though Brazil is an all-year round destination we advise June to September as the best time to travel to Brazil. Across most of the country this is the period when there is the least rainfall, temperatures are somewhat tempered and travel conditions are at their best.
