Brazil: location. Brazil is located on the east coast of South America, sharing land borders with Uruguay to the south; Argentina and Paraguay to the southwest; Bolivia and Peru in the west; Columbia to the northwest; and Venezuela, Guyana, Suriname and the French Overseas Authority of French Guiana in the north.
Brazil: capital. The capital of Brazil is Brasilia, located on the Brazilian plateau.
Brazil: language. Portuguese is the first language of the vast majority of Brazilians. The indigenous peoples of Brazil speak dozens of separate languages, and the greatest divergence of the Brazilian language from Portuguese can be attributed to the initial contact with the Indians.
Brazil: religion. About two-thirds of the Brazilian people adhere to Roman Catholicism. Much of the rest of the population is Protestant, including fundamentalist and Pentecostal groups.
Brazil: currency. The currency of Brazil is the Brazilian Real (BRL).
Brazil: climate. Brazil has a humid tropical and subtropical climate, except for a drier region in the northeast, sometimes referred to as the drought polygon or quadrangle, which extends from northern Bahia to the coast between Natal and San Luis.
In winter (May to October), the Brazilian highlands are usually dry, with snow falling in only a few southern states. Regular frosts accompany winter air currents from the south, and temperatures close to frost can reach as far as Sao Paulo.
Brazil: when to go. Brazil is a year-round destination made up of several climate extremes, none of which are severe enough to avoid travel to any part of the country. Throughout Brazil, the warmest months are from November to March: summer in the southern hemisphere. The driest months in the Pantanal are from April to October, but like the Amazon, its wetter months offer excellent wildlife viewing opportunities and opportunities.
Sitis Travel highly recommends traveling to Brazil in February to celebrate the Rio Carnival and take part in the biggest party in the world.
