What are the weather and sailing conditions like in Brazil?
Before embarking on your Brazilian boat charter, it is necessary to take into account that the country has a great climatic diversity. While this is one of the things that makes the country such an interesting place to visit, it can also cause some problems if you are not prepared.
To the north, in the Amazon region, the climate is equatorial. This means that it is hot and generally humid. Its average temperature is around 24ºC to 27ºC (75-80.5ºF). This climate is called equatorial because it affects regions that are close to the equator.
Another of Brazil’s climates is tropical
. This is the climate usually found in the center of the country
, a large part of Piauí
and a portion of Bahia, Minas Gerais and Maranhão
. The tropical climate typically has well-defined seasons
, with a hot, humid summer
and a mild, dry winter

of the country has a lower average temperature
compared to the rest.
Regardless of the different climates, Brazil is known for being a country with generally high temperatures, making it the perfect destination for your nautical vacation!
When is the best time for sailing holidays in Brazil?
