Brazil is one of the world's mightiest countries, impressing with its sheer size, diversity and footballing prowess, and with a reputation for not taking life too seriously.

This South American giant is naturally a major draw for travellers from all over the world who are keen to see icons like Christ the Redeemer, the Amazon Rainforest, the city-stopping Carnival and Copacabana Beach.

While it’s blessed with a wealth of natural wonders, from the Iguazu Falls to the Amazon River, and more animal and plant species than anywhere else on Earth, Brazil's cultural offerings shouldn't be overlooked either. It is home to the continent's best-preserved colonial towns at Olinda, Salvador and Ouro Preto, as well as a rich multicultural heritage that's best seen in the melting pot of modern São Paulo.

So where to begin? It all starts with a conversation. Get in touch with one of our experts and we can make recommendations on the best way to not just see Brazil, but truly experience it.

When to go

Brazil is a year-round destination, though depending on where you're planning to go, the winter months (June to August in the Southern Hemisphere) can bring excess rain and cold temperatures in southern regions, making other times of the year preferable. If you're planning a trip to escape the cold winter back home, December to March is Brazil's summer. Temperatures during this time can exceed 35 degrees Celsius, tourist areas become crowded and prices rise, but it can all be worthwhile to catch the unparalleled Rio Carnival in February and March. The Amazon region is a special case, where temperatures are relatively stable throughout the year, but most rain falls in summer, making the drier months of June to August the best time for exploring the rainforest.

Break up the long flight to Brazil by choosing stopovers that appeal to you. When you book with Round the World Experts, we can build you a custom flight itinerary to get even more out of your trip.

Brazil airports

Brazil's two major international airports are Aeroporto Galeão, about 12 miles from Rio de Janeiro, and Aeroporto Guarulhos, about 15 miles from São Paulo. Travel options into the respective cities include buses, taxis and prearranged transport which we can organise for you.

Best time to fly

Brazil's peak holiday season is from mid-December to February. Visiting during this time can mean having to deal with larger crowds and higher prices. The shoulder seasons of April to June and August to October offer more competitive rates and a comfortable climate.
