Brazil has to be one of the most diverse countries in the world, and that’s what makes it appeal to all kinds of travelers, whether the people in your group are wildlife enthusiasts, festival goers, n avid hikers, or ones who loves to stroll through the streets of quaint towns and villages. Brazil has it all!
To help you get the most of your trip, we’ve highlighted our top Brazil travel tips.
- Do not aspire to know everything in a single trip
The queries we answer every day show us that there are still people who aspire to “absorb” Brazil in 20 days of travel. Brazil is the size of Europe, with an endless list of interesting places, very far from each other. The distance is still greater as a result of some difficulties in transport infrastructure, both public and private.
To have enough time to explore several areas of Brazil comfortably, plan to book at least a seven-day trip. If you have five days or less, selecting a targeted itinerary is your best bet—choose a specific tour, activity, or region to get the most out of a shorter visit.
- The advantage of establishing bases
Brazil not only has some awesome thrilling and unique activities to take part in, but there are a host of unmissable attractions which make this country so famous.
For a start, choosing one of the bases from which to explore part of Brazil offers great benefits, both from the point of view of the time savings, as well as the money savings associated with shorter and less expensive trips. A base would be a single destination, where you would spend several days, from which to explore other neighboring destinations.
Brazil offers several excellent bases, such as Rio de Janeiro (great for discovering places like Arraial do Cabo, Ilha Grande or Paraty) or Salvador de Bahía (perfect for exploring Morro de São Paulo, Boipeba, Praia do Forte, Chapada Diamantina and even south coast of the state of Bahia).
On these bases you can add departures to other more distant destinations, depending on your budget and the duration of your trip, such as the unmissable Iguazú waterfalls or the paradisiacal Fernando de Noronha.
EXTRA: Rio enchants!
If you’re planning a trip to Brazil, Rio de Janeiro must be one of the top priorities. Rio is Brazil’s and perhaps Latin America’s most well known city. It spills out from the Atlantic Ocean, rises up from its famous white beaches of Copacabana and Ipanema and spreads into tree-lined streets of white apartment buildings that skirt shady parks and plazas.
It is a city that should not be missed by any visitor to Brazil, whether it’s a first trip or the tenth. It’s a place of contrasts; a buzzing, modern metropolis yet home to the world’s largest urban forest. Rio epitomises the country in every way. It is culturally rich, full of music and dance and its beaches, and the Brazilians who strut purposefully along them, are among the most beautiful in the Americas.
Places such as the cobbled street town of Paraty (a coastal historic town in the state of Rio de Janeiro) and the island of Ihla Grande (an island in the Brazilian state of Rio de Janeiro ringed by beaches, covered by Atlantic forest and crossed by winding trails) are two spots that cannot be overlooked, as well as the iconic Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio and the food and coffee which are highlighted by themselves.
- Choose the right period
When planning a trip to Brazil, the best time to visit is from September to October. This lets you avoid the busiest holiday periods, the harsh winters in the south and the peak of the wet season. Brazil’s warmest months are also its wettest, so it’s generally best to avoid the high season between December and March, particularly if you’re planning on wildlife watching in the Amazon or the Pantanal, which are best visited between July and September. Rio’s world-famous Carnaval takes place in February or early March, and it’s without a doubt one of the most unforgettable parties you can attend. If you’re into windsurfing or kiteboarding, a trip to São Miguel do Gostoso, Taiba or Cumbuco offer great conditions between May and February.
- What about the weather in Brazil?
Brazil is a huge country, which means the weather can vary from place to place. As well as this, it is good to have an idea of the seasons in Brazil and what to expect at which time of year – which will make sure you enjoy your trip to the fullest.
Brazil is the only country in the world to have the Tropic of Capricorn to the South and the Equator to the North, so as you can imagine, this can play a huge part in the weather and climate of the country. As an overview, you can expect a tropical climate overall, with the hottest month being February, the coldest being July and the wettest being December, but as this can vary from region to region. Our business travel experts at GT DMC will make sure to offer some advice when planning your trip to Brazil.
As a whole, Brazil experiences a wet season from March to August and a dry season from July to November, so depending on which time you plan to go, it’s worth preparing well for either hot weather or rainy weather.
