Best time of the year to visit Porto Seguro, Arraial da Ajuda and Trancoso

Porto Seguro, Arraial da Ajuda e Trancoso are tropical year round destinations, but you should avoid the April to June period. It rains significantly more, and the humidity levels are higher.

The period between mid-December and March is the high season in the region and the best time to visit the region - at least for those who are looking for entertainment, music and nightlife, or who want to visit the area (Salvador, Recife…). Temperatures will be high in these months, but precipitation levels are low. Obviously that’s a busy time, involving higher hotel prices.

If you want to consider other quieter months, October and November can be a good option. They are in the low-season, but they have very pleasant air and water sea temperatures (80ºF/26ºC).
