The northern region of Bahia and coastal zone is cooler than the tropical areas of Brazil, and it can even get a little chilly here at times. It’s something to bear in mind if you’re planning on trekking the region’s stunning gorges and canyons.
In short, the weather should never ruin your trip but it is something to think about before you go. Depending on your chosen adventure, some times of the year are better than others but even in the middle of the rainy season, downpours tend to be short and spectacular.

In a country the size of Brazil, with both the Equator and Tropic of Capricorn running through it, you can experience many extremes of weather. There’s plenty of glorious sunshine and tropical heat but the presence of the world’s largest rainforest should also give you a clue as to what to expect at certain other times of year.
How much of an impact the rain will have on your holiday to Brazil depends on what you are doing and where exactly in the country you will be based but it should never get in the way of your adventure. In some cases rainfall can even open up new opportunities for travel.
