The Iguassu Falls 
The world's most spectacular waterfalls are situated along the border between Brazil and Argentina.

Fun and Nightlife in Brazil

For entertainment and nightlife, Rio de Janeiro is the number one choice.

But Bahia (Salvador), with its exoticism and unique musical traditions, or even Sao Paulo (a big metropolis of over 15 million people, with lots of restaurants, clubs, bars and night clubs and discos), are also places to consider.

Best time to go to Brazil

Brazil is a large country with several climate zones. It's usually helpful to consider a two-season pattern for the North and the Northeast coast, or for te Amazon, that is, a rain and dry season.

But that's not the case in Sao Paulo, or further south. Here we should consider a four season weather pattern (though cold weather spells are uncommon, and restricted).

These and other factors, should be considered when visiting Brazil. The most popular times are not necessarily the best time to go. An example: the best time to visit the Amazon Is the the driest months (June to September, in Manaus) though most people visit the Amazon during the hotter and rainiest time: January, February and March.
