    Best Time to Visit Brazil

    General

    Flavia’s, our local host from Rio, advice on when to visit Brazil:

    ‘Well first of all you need to note that our summer is opposite to your summer. When we have summer, you have winter. Many international travellers will aim to visit during our summer months, but I would advise against that because the average temperature will sit around 40 degrees. I think that this is too hot to do much more than spend time at the beach which would be a shame to miss out on exploring the city.

    The best times to come to Rio would be April to June. This is when we have autumn, the days are beautiful and it’s hot but not too hot. Maximum 30 degrees during this period which is still very enjoyable. However, if you do want to experience carnival you will need to come during summer as it takes place on New Years Eve.’

    Top tips for visiting Brazil

    Blend in with the locals – The media has unfortunately singled out Brazil for its crime. To avoid being targeted, blend in with the locals. This means, no overt tourist attire, including sock and sandals! As well as avoiding carrying around overly pricey items or excessive amounts of money.

    Wild Animals – Brazil is home a large diversity of ecosystems. For your own safety, do not touch the wild animals. Wild animals can commonly carry diseases and even a scratch could result in serious illness.

    Water – the tap water in Brazil is not safe to drink. Make sure to buy bottled water and stay hydrated during the heat.
