When to Visit Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

When you're planning your visit to Rio de Janeiro, it's important to remember that seasons are reversed south of the equator. June, July, and August are the coolest months of the year with highs in the low 70s and lows in the mid-60s. These mild temperatures cause hotel prices to skyrocket. Though June sees more precipitation than any other month, rain falls off again in July, August, and September. Less rain means minimal fog and ideal sightseeing for destinations like Sugar Loaf Mountain and Corcovado.

October and November herald springtime in Rio. The weather is dry and warm, but the lack of major festivals makes this a relatively slow season for the city. You'll find some of the lowest hotel prices of the year during these beautiful months.

Rio de Janeiro's peak season hits in December and continues through March, which represents summer for Brazil. This season typically brings highs in the mid to upper 80s. December and March average more than three inches of rain, though January and February are drier.

New Year's Eve, also known as Reveillon, is a huge event in Rio, and on Copacabana Beach in particular. Carnival takes place in February, enveloping the city in music, dance, and spirited celebrations for five days of indulgence before Lent. Carnival is one of the most popular times to visit Rio, so you'll need to book your hotel early to secure a room.

In April and May, Rio's crowds begin to dissipate. You'll find cheaper room rates, particularly after Easter. However, the drop in prices coincides with a peak in humidity. Expect temperatures nearing 80 degrees at the height of the day during Rio de Janeiro's autumn.

Below is a chart of the current pricing seasonality of hotels and motels in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil:

Acting Like a Local in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Rio de Janeiro is a popular tourist destination, so you won't be the only visitor looking a little lost on the streets. However, there are several perks to navigating the city like a local. You're less likely to attract unwanted attention when you're well-prepared for your visit, and a little thinking ahead can go a long way to ensuring a smooth stay here.

One of the most important things to know is that the national language of Brazil isn't Spanish as some people assume, but Portuguese. If you're brushing up on local phrases, make sure you have the right language. Plan your route through the city before you leave your hotel, and step off the street into a boutique or coffee shop if you need to look up directions. A paper map is safer than an iPhone or other smartphone that's easily snatched.

If you want to look like a local, avoid cutoff shorts, brightly printed shirts, or beachwear any place other than the actual beach. Jeans make for excellent tourist camouflage if you can bear it, as most visitors find these pants a bit too stifling for the tropical weather.

If you're looking for an unforgettable Brazilian vacation that combines wild parties, lazy days on the beach, and unique cultural highlights, you'll find everything you're after in Rio de Janeiro. Don't be surprised when you find one visit isn't enough.
