Cheap Holidays to Brazil
As a holiday destination Brazil offers a multitude of experiences from sipping a caipirinha on the white sand beaches to visiting historic colonial towns; soaking up the atmosphere in colourful cities alive with the rhythm of the samba or exploring the Amazonian rainforests.
A country of year round warm weather, world famous beaches and tourist attractions and, not least, the magnificent Carnivals.
Brazil is a vast country with around 90% in the tropical zone; though it's worth remembering that its location in the Southern Hemisphere makes its seasons the opposite of our own. Winter in Brazil lasts from June to August, and summer lasts from December to February. The hottest and driest area is in the Northeast where rainfall is scarce from May to November and temperatures can reach over 100 deg F.
