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.

A visit to Rio de Janeiro Recapped

Rio de Janeiro is, without doubt, one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Although it is not Brazil's capital, the city attracts the most number of tourists. To the international community, Rio de Janeiro is simply known as Rio, but for the proud locals, Rio is known as the Cidade Maravilhosa, or Marvelous City. Rio is marvelous in every right. It is the southern hemisphere's most visited city, where balneario beaches, Bossa Nova, samba, carnival celebrations, and natural wonders attract tourists from all over the world. Any feature of Rio would first focus on one of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World, the Christ the Redeemer, a gigantic statue and religious symbol that towers all over Brazil. Guests can choose from the dizzying choices - riding the Sugarloaf cable car to the Corcovado Mountain, exploring downtown at the Guanabara Bay, and sunbathing along Copacabana Beach's shore. There's so much to see in Rio, as its landscape is being geared to cater the influx of tourists for 2013's World Youth Day, 2014's Fifa World Cup, and 2016's Summer Olympics.

'They have a joy for life in Brazil unlike any country I've ever seen', says Morena Baccarin; Rio De Janerio-born actress and model.

Perhaps this joy for life is what makes Copacabana, Rio de Janeiro's most energetic and diverse locality. With incalculable attractions for local people and guests, it is one of the most populated regions in entire country. It would be only correct to say that it's very much a city inside of itself. The stunning coastline is the top point of interest for tourists which visit the place from all corners of the globe. Apart from that, it has fabulous dance club, eateries, boutiques, and the trademark walkways are all that could possibly be needed to enrapture anyone. As one goes strolling around and finds the parks, squares, sights, and particularly the general population, the individual will end up being a fan forever. 

Which Budget Hotels in Copacabana Can Travelers Access?

There are many cheap hotels in Copacabana that would easily fit under a low budget. Most of them are hostels which offer a cozy and warm setting for guests to relax and have a good time. COPA HOSTEL is one of such places which always are in high demand. What makes it an enticing option is the fact that it is just 3 minutes walk from the stunning Copacabana beach. Other Copacabana hotels in the category are Praia Lido Copacabana Hotel, which has old-school rooms and Hotel ibis budget Rj Copacabana, which offers very cheap rooms on rent. Rio Rockers hotel is another option worth going for, if traveling on a low budget.

Which Luxury Hotels in Copacabana Can Travelers Access?

An interesting factor is that most of the luxury hotels in Copacabana are located on beach front. Belmond Copacabana Palace is a luxury five star hotel that offers the finest services to its guests with rooms that overlook the scintillating coastline of magical Copacabana. JW Marriott Hotel Rio de Janeiro is another hotel from the category that is just 3.5 miles away from both Jardim Botânico do Rio de Janeiro and Sugarloaf Mountain. Hotel Rio Othon Palace and Porto Bay Rio Internacional Hotel are Parisian style hotels in Copacabana that bring the flavour of Europe into the Latin American region with class.

What All is There to Experience in Copacabana?

If Rio De Janerio is deemed as a city which never sleeps, then Copacabana is only 10 steps ahead in comparison. Copacabana Beach is the place to spend New Year's Eve, a gathering that pulls in over two million individuals from all corners of the globe. The spectacle begins with firecrackers celebration and the stages with unrecorded music shows are a major also, however the Cariocas are the principle fascination. Most everyone dresses in white, a convention to bring peace and good fortunes. The cosmopolitan Copacabana horizon highlights Pedra da Gavea in Sao Conrado and Morro dos Dois irmaos in Ipanema. Tourists can wake up ahead of schedule and watch the sun ascend out of the Atlantic Ocean. The first clump of crisp heated bread is prepared available to be purchased at many pastry kitchens, and bouncers of Lido dance club are at long last throwing in the towel. It indeed is a paradise where party never ends.
