I'm looking at traveling to Brazil at the end of August/September. I'm confused (after much research) about how the weather will really be during this timeframe. I'd like to start it off in Rio and make my way North (apparently it gets warmer as you head North). However, I'm curious as to whether or not I'll be able to enjoy the ocean and swim during this time or is it too cold? Will it be raining a lot or just off and on?

Also, random question, anyone know how long it would take to travel by bus from Rio to Montevideo, Uruguay? Any bus line suggestions.

Thanks in advance for you help!

When I was in Rio in August 2006, the weather was just plain miserable. Cold and grey, although nowhere nearly as cold as in the inlands of Sao Paulo state where I came from. Further north it's supposed to be good, though. I didn't go for a swim so couldn't help you with that.

Sorry, is not the best time of year to enjoy the beach. But I believe in the Northeast you will have less problems. Here in Pernambuco this year we have less rain.
If you want to make scuba dive, don’t come.

Can you delay your trip in a month?

This the best time to visit Chapada Diamantina, Bahia. The most beautifull place in the world. Google it.

I hope you can understand my English :)

You should come anyway, my country is just amazing ;)

Best wishes,
