One thing will remain constant as you travel throughout Brazil - its fascinating people. A heady mixture of Indian, Portuguese and African elements has forged the Brazilian nation over a period of five centuries. Here, especially in Rio de Janeiro, the dream of society as a melting-pot has become reality, and the result can often be as puzzling as it is dazzling, privileged wealth overlooked by disadvantaged favelas.
Touring through South America’s largest country, it is evident that Nature has also created extremes: glorious sun-drenched beaches, the lush rainforest of the Amazon, the power of the vast Iguassu Falls and the diverse wildlife of the Pantanal await visitors. Other magnetisms include the all-encompassing rhythmic atmosphere, dramatic landscapes of red-rock canyons and the architecturally-rich colonial towns.
Weather & Climate
Sitting within the tropics, Brazil is something of a year-round destination with temperatures rarely dip below 20°C, apart from in the mountains and southern regions.
When to go
The best time to visit is generally from March to November during the dry season.
