Average time to visit

Go in low season (March-June and October-December) to avoid the crowds and the heat. It can be quite cool from July to August (usually in the low 20°C). The hottest time is from December to February, when temperatures often reach 30°C and it can be humid with frequent short bursts of rain. This is also the busiest time of year (New Year is one big party).

Mark Beken (Staff)

Right next door to Casas Brancas, this lovely boutique hotel offers in my view the most attractive hotel option, along with Insolito, in Buzios. The service is extremely friendly, and the rooms airy and light, and you have the same advantages of spectacular sundowner views and access to the action in Buzios town.
