Planing an itinerary in Brazil

Planning an itinerary in Brazil can be somewhat of a daunting task, due to its enormous geographic size and diversity. Visitors should first of all consider time constraints and flight or bus times in between destinations, and then map out a geographically sensible route accordingly. Virtually all visitors to Brazil will want to see Rio de Janeiro, generally considered Brazil’s crowning jewel. Sao Paulo, though not as interesting, is Brazil’s largest and most important city, and is usually included on most tourist itineraries as well.

Amazon River in Manaus
It’s important to have a good overview of Brazil’s various and diverse regions. The northern third of Brazil is dominated by the uniquely breathtaking Amazon rainforest, offering unparalleled wildlife observation and ecological tours; most travelers will fly into Manaus.

The Brazilian Northeast, with its magnificent beaches and distinctive Afro-Brazilian flavor and cuisine, offers the cities of Salvador, Recife, Olinda, and the pristine island archipelago of Noronha.

In the interior, you will find the planalto (a high dry plateau region), where the capital Brasilia is located, and the Pantanal, an enormous wetland. The south of Brazil is much more European in feel and flavor, with the magnificent recreational opportunities of Florianpolis, and the historical and architectural elegance of Minas Gerais and its capital Belo Horizonte. Finally, a trip to Brazil is not complete without a visit to the spectacular Iguazu Falls on the Brazilian-Argentine border.

Political Map of Brazil

If you’re planning an itinerary, make sure to also consider high versus low season, and the weather. High season in Brazil typically means December to February, and the months of June and July.

Accommodation, airfare and tour prices are certain to be higher. The low season runs from March to May, and then again from August to November. With regard to the weather, Northern Brazil, with its proximity to the Equator, has little seasonal variation.

However, the further south you go in Brazil, the more pronounced the seasons: summers are hot, and winters are moderately cool and rainy. It would be advisable to avoid travel to southern Brazil during the coldest months of June, July, and August.

=> Always keep in mind thatsouth of the Equator, seasons are the opposite. Thus the southern hemisphere’s winter is December, January, and February.
