Overview

Brazil is a country best known for samba, carnivals, football and beaches, but there’s so much more to this country than meets the eye. With an endless palm-fringed coastline, Brazil holidays offer a huge variety of scenery from steaming tropical rainforests to the sunlit slopes of the southern vineyards.

Although there's plenty of exotic wildlife on display it’s the people of Brazil who give this country its unique identity. Amazonian Indians, Portuguese colonists, African, European and Japanese communities all co-exist independently yet fuse together into a rich medley of cultures. And while Brazil is a country of extremes, today it has a roller-coaster emergent economy, including independent businesses and stunning artisan crafts, as well as world-renowned art, architecture, music and dance.

While you take the time to soak in the magic of the tropical jungle and sunlit slopes of the southern vineyards on an unforgettable holiday in Brazil, we take care of the rest.

There's a comprehensive network of roads and air routes, giving you more time to explore the beaches, forests, cities and hidden gems on your Brazil holiday. Many attractions have been developed sensitively for tourism; others left in their natural state, so you can enjoy the best of both worlds as you travel on and off the beaten track. Plus, with a huge range of accommodation and a relaxed and friendly welcome everywhere you go, you will feel at home every night – wherever you choose to lay your head.

At Journey Latin America we have a superb selection of holidays to Brazil to suit everyone, whether you’re a solo traveller, searching for the perfect family holiday, or would like to join a group tour.

Where to go when - our guide to Brazil

Salvador Brazil

The weather in Brazil is wide and varied

Brazil’s territory occupies half a continent, so the weather conditions vary substantially over both space and time. When you choose to go will not only depend on the weather - there are festivals, wildlife spotting opportunities, local holiday times and other considerations to bear in mind.
Nature lovers visiting the Pantanal will do well to choose the period from April to November, while the Amazon can be visited at any time. If you love a party atmosphere you can choose to visit Rio or Salvador in February for Carnival – or skip that time, and the Brazilian holiday season in January and July, if you prefer peace and quiet. For hiking inland from Salvador, June to September offers the driest conditions. The beaches of the south are tempting from December to March, while in the cool winter you might spot whales there. Beach time in Bahia further north is most agreeable from April to October, with sunny but not overly hot days.
