The giant state of Brazil is the largest in both South America and Latin America, and is one of the most multicultural countries in the world due to a century of large-scale immigration from across the world. It is restricted by the Atlantic Ocean to the east, while sharing its border to the north with Venezuela, Guyana, Suriname and French Guiana, to the west with Peru and Bolivia, and to the south with Paraguay, Argentina and Uruguay. In fact, covering almost half of South America, the only counties it doesn’t border are Ecuador and Chile.
The vast geography of Brazil means that it displays a wide climactic range, with the majority of the country being tropical. Yet it also features desert, equatorial, semiarid and oceanic weather patterns. Winter is characterised by cool and dry conditions.
Visit in the cooler and drier winter months of May to September for ideal climbing conditions.
