When is the best time to visit?
Travel to Brazil in April through June or August through October. In July, major tourist draws are often crowded since local schools are on vacation, and the summer months from December through February are often too warm for comfort.
Where to go in Brazil?
Learn how to truly celebrate something in the legendarily vibrant city of Rio de Janeiro or relax in the much slower-paced Santa Teresa. From the country twang of Sertanejo, the reggae of Maranhão, the carimbó music of the Amazon, Brazil is a country to be experienced through the rhythms of its people.
How many days do I need?
While travelers might be tempted to visit Brazil in less than a week, the variety of experiences and destinations within this large country should be experienced over at least twice that amount of time.
To visitors, Rio de Janeiro is an exotic city where color and music flourish. Although the Cariocas (residents of Rio) agree, they know there's much more to their "Wonderful City." Explore irresistible beaches, surf and wooded mountains, the world-famous landmarks of the Pão de Açúcar and Cristo Redentor, and more on this quick immersion into the magic of Rio.
From the Corcovado to Sugarloaf Mountain and Copacabana to Ipanema, this whirlwind tour will sweep you through the best, most famous, and most beautiful beaches, neighborhoods, and mountains that Rio de Janeiro has to offer. Cycle along the endless beaches, hike the largest urban forest in the world, and learn how to cook with Brazilian flare and flavors.
Trek one of Brazil's most beautiful routes through the lush Serra dos Órgãos National Park — from Petrópolis to Teresópolis. The trail is known for its breathtaking vistas, steep climbs, and high difficulty rating, so get ready for an incredibly rewarding challenge!

Straddling the triple border between Brazil, Venezuela, and Guyana, Mount Roraima is a perfect destination for adventurous travelers. Spend your days exploring the towering cliffs and unique landscapes of the mountain with the ultimate goal of climbing the summit — known to many as "The Lost World."
