Times to Travel Experienced travelers say that the best time to visit Brazil, is "anytime." And for the most part temperatures and conditions are great throughout the year. Minor exceptions are in the southern part of Brazil where summers (most of the time) are very hot, and the winters (some of the time) very rainy. Note that summer vacations for Brazilians occur December through February, and beach areas are crowded and expensive.
