Best time to visit Brasília

Every year in Brasília is dominated by the dry season (May – September) and the wet season (October – April). The dry season is actually a good time to visit, as you can enjoy low rainfall (49mm in September) and warm temperatures (as high as 28°C). While the weather is still warm from December to February, rainfall is at its highest (284mm) and this is the summer season, when most of the locals are on vacation. It would be best to avoid the summer then.

Health & Safety

Before you leave for Brazil, make sure you’re up to date on all the routine vaccinations. Additionally, you will need to guard against diseases such as hepatitis A, hepatitis B, typhoid, malaria, zika and yellow fever. Hepatitis A and typhoid are transmittable through contaminated food and water (typhoid is additionally transmittable via close contact). Hepatitis B is spread through sexual contact, contaminated needles and blood products. Guard against mosquito bites to prevent getting malaria, zika and yellow fever, and avoid contact with animals outside to reduce the risk of rabies.

Avoid walking around at night, especially around the central bus station. Make sure to walk in the company of others, and avoid deserted places with bad illumination. In general, stay alert and you will be fine.
