Weather in Brazil in August
Brazil is a large country but most of it falls under the tropical climate. August is part of the dry season in the northeast, so it’s still warm enough to sunbath but not humid (it can get very hot, though). Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro are warm year-round ; so you can easily get a suntan if you head to Rio de Janeiro, but remember that the sea water can be quite cold in August. The rain forest is also relatively dry in August, so you can plan to explore the area.
