The climate of Brazil comprises a wide range of weather conditions across a large area and varied topography, but most of the country is tropical. Brazil hosts five major climatic subtypes: equatorial, tropical, semiarid, highland tropical, temperate, and subtropical. The different climatic conditions produce environments ranging from equatorial rainforests in the north and semiarid deserts in the northeast, to temperate coniferous forests in the south and tropical savannas in central Brazil. Many regions have starkly different microclimates.
An equatorial climate characterizes much of northern Brazil. There is no real dry season, but there are some variations in the period of the year when most rain falls. Temperatures average 25 °C (77 °F), with more significant temperature variation between night and day than between seasons.
Over central Brazil rainfall is more seasonal, characteristic of a savanna climate. This region is as extensive as the Amazon basin but has a very different climate as it lies farther south at a higher altitude. In the interior northeast, seasonal rainfall is even more extreme. The semiarid climatic region generally receives less than 800 millimetres (31.5 in) of rain, most of which generally falls in a period of three to five months of the year and occasionally less than this, creating long periods of drought.
South of Bahia, near the coasts, and more southerly most of the state of São Paulo, the distribution of rainfall changes, with rain falling throughout the year. The south enjoys temperate conditions, with cool winters and average annual temperatures not exceeding 18 °C (64.4 °F); winter frosts are quite common, with occasional snowfall in the higher areas. Other kinds of solid precipitation happen in a wider area, including cities as Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo.
The currency in Brazil is the Real (R$). You can change Dollars at exchange shops or hotels front desk. However other currencies are not wildly available, so you are advised to bring U$ Dollars or travelers checks. Foreign currencies and travelers checks can be exchanged at hotels, banks and tourist agencies. Most international credit cards are accepted.
Most offices and stores are open from 9:00 am to 6:00 pm, Monday through Friday. Stores are also open on Saturday from 9am to 1pm while most of the large shopping centers open Monday to Saturday from 10:00am to 10:00pm. Banks are open from Monday to Friday.
What to wear
Brazilians, even in the major cities, dress casually outside the office. None of the country's top restaurants insist on collar and tie although the occasional club does. Collar and tie still predominate in formal office and business surroundings in São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro and most working women wear dresses or skirts. Ladies should remember to pack a jacket or shawl when coming to Brazil as some of the buildings and restaurants can be a little over enthusiastic with the air conditioning.
The official language of Brazil is Portuguese.
The gigantic power of its massive water falls constantly roaring in a huge moisting cloud and painting the horizon with mellow rainbows is one of the most magnificent natural spectacle on earth, which makes us realize how tiny we are in front of its force. For those seeking for adventure, a concrete platform allows breathtaking views from inside the falls.
The Itaipú Dam
There is no technical project in the world to be compared to the "Hydroelectric Power Plant of Itaipú", a gigantic dam that is 196m height and 8km long, with 18 immense turbines producing a total of 12, 6 MW - per year 76 billion KW/h - enough energy to supply 6 Brazilian states besides the whole country of Paraguay. Visitors with technical interest surely will appreciate this trip guided partly by Itaipú technicians. Technical visits to the interior of the turbines and administration bureau can be arranged upon request.
Christ the Redeemer
A modern Swiss-made cogwheel rail climbs through Tijuca Rain Forest up to the top of Corcovado mountain (710 m). It takes about 17 min at a maximum speed of 15km/h on the way up, and 22 min at 12km/h, on the way down. The trip ensures breathtaking views of Rio, such as the Rodrigo de Freitas lagoon. At the very top of the mountain, and yet after climbing a steep flight of steps, there stands the statue of Christ, the Redeemer, carved in soapstone mosaic in the finest art nouveau style. Its 38m high and the outstretched arms blessing the city have become Rio's most famous postcard.
Ride through Rio's beautiful architectonic monuments, visit the Metropolitan Cathedral and ascend the twin peaks by a series of venturing cable car rides. On the first hill, called "Urca", walk around the flowered passways and enjoy the magnificent views. The goes up to the Sugar Loaf itself. Visitors will admire the unique beauty of Guanabara Bay, Niterói, Copacabana and Santa Cruz Fortress, a landmark of Rio's history and will certainly be amazed by the awesome views.

New Year´s Eve in Rio de Janeiro
New Year's Eve is one of Rio de Janeiro's most important celebrations, second only to Carnival in popularity. It attracts people from all over the world, and Brazilians from all states.
The festivities are concentrated in Copacabana, with 2 million people every year. There are four stages along the beach with live music shows starting at 8 p.m. featuring everything from traditional Carnival songs to rock and dance. The fireworks festival starts at midnight, with the turning of the year. The fireworks stations are located in boats anchored in a safe distance from the beach. It lasts about 15-20 minutes, and two highlights are the fireworks cascades at Forte de Copacabana. If you are coming for New Year's Eve you must learn some of the traditions. The first one is that people wear white for the party. You may add accessories in your favorite colors: red is good to attract romance, yellow is for prosperity, green for good health, and so on. Black is not the right color to wear, no matter how fashionable it may be. A lot of people bring flowers, and you should throw them in the sea before midnight. They are an offering to Yemanja, the deity of the seas. Bring a bottle of champagne to pop and drink at midnight. If you are on the beach and you decide to shake the bottle and spray around, nobody will complain - it's considered good luck. You may also be blessed by a Candomble priestess, and enjoy the traditional African dances and costumes. This is a party where everybody is welcome. Walk along the beach and you will run into socialies, working class people, transvestites, children, seniors, couples, teenagers, it seems that all tribes mingle in peace to welcome the new year. Plan your trip ahead, as it is not that easy to find an air ticket in the last minute. Hotels in Rio raise their rates for New Year's, and offer their rooms in prepayable packages including a predetermined number of mandatory nights.
