It’s all about timing. To avoid crowds and inflated prices, we recommend the period between high and low seasons when the weather is fine, places are still open and happy to welcome travelers, and you can explore a destination at your own pace. ShermansTravel experts call this magical time and space continuum the Sweet Spot.

When to go to Brazil

Peak Season: December to March

Since Brazil is in the southern hemisphere, December holidays conveniently coincide with summertime weather and a collective migration toward the coast. Jam-packed beach towns are pricier during the festive New Year's celebration, while Rio is colorful and chaotic during Carnaval. This is not a good time to visit the Amazon, however, as its wettest months are January through May.

Off Season: June-September

During Brazil’s winter, you won’t have to fight the crowds. The prices are lowest during this time, and the temperatures are still comfortable. This season is perfect for visiting the Amazon, and in Bahia, the weather remains pleasantly tropical.

Sweet Spot: April to May; October to November

The week of Easter can be crowded and expensive in Brazil’s cities (though the flower-bedecked celebration is lovely to behold), but October and November bring temperate spring weather, fewer tourists, and a moment of calm before rainy season starts in the Amazon.
