Brazil: Best time to visit?

I am thinking about taking a trip to Brazil in October. Is October a good time to visit Brazil? Is early October preferable to late October?

Many thanks in advance.

I'm still in the initial stages of planning, but at this point I'd say I'm leaning towards Rio/Buzios and Salvador. Thanks.

October is a good time to go to Rio and Buzios as it is before the high season and high temperatures plus proces and crowds should be lower. Expect weather to be about 8- - 85 degrees if it is not raining. On the other hand if you like it hot and crowded with plenty of beach and street action then January and February is the best timeframe.

What will the weather be like for the month of December in the following regions:

Sao Paulo/Rio, Salvador, Pantanal, Foz & Porto Alegre?

I know this is considered 'high season' but I heard the bulk of the tourist don't come until Jan/Feb.

I have been in Rio in December where it was 110 degrees but for the most part it should be in the 90's. January and February will see most days about 100 some in the 90's and some over 100.

You should also consider that Oct 12th is a national holiday and people tend to head to the beaches. Also, hotels charge higher. So if you wanna avoid crowds and higher prices take this tip into consideration.

Enjoy!

Porto Alegre can be fairly chilling in Oct. though it is ideal for Rio, Salvador. Skip Brazilia, it is just a city with little to see or do, in my opinion. The Amazon is hot and very humid most of the year. So if you took a cruise from Belem to Maneus on a nice small cruise boat with A/C (most have) the shore stops almost all involve interesting hikes and in 15 minutes or less you are very...very...wilted, though it is quite interesting.
In Salvador do NOT eat the foods from street vendors. They cook with dende (spelling) oil and I was not the only one who became very ill for 36 hours of a 3 day visit.I was not that impressed nor most of my group, even though they did not become ill, with salvador for more than 2 days.
