The North of the country has a tropical climate, with the South more temperate and with more marked seasonal variations. During the winter (June to August), temperatures in the South can drop to around 12 degrees centigrade, while in the summer, they tend to stay around the 30 mark, though many areas, most notably Rio, reach the high 30s from December to February. The Amazon basin is, unsurprisingly, very wet and humid.

The North is wettest from January to April, while the rainy season hits the northeast coast from April to July and the South and central regions from November to March.

As the best tactic is to avoid real extremes of temperature or rainfall, the best times to visit Brazil depend largely on where you’re going. As a general rule, though, the northern/northeastern regions are at their most comfortable from August to November, whereas in the South, April/May and September to November are the best times to go.
