Best time to visit:

In Rio’s summer (December to February), temperatures can reach 40ºC (104ºF) or more. When the heat is on, tourists should follow the Brazilian example and hit the beach rather than rush around. These months are also peak season – not only are international flights more expensive, but domestic travel and hotels are charged at a premium and get booked up quickly.

Rio’s winter (June to August) is never that cold, with temperatures rarely going below 17°C (63°F). On cooler evening and during its winter months, June to August, bring a light sweater or jacket. Rainfall is at its lowest in winter, especially in July and August, when you might only expect half a dozen days with rain over the month.
