Best time to Visit

Good time to visit

Average time to visit

April to October is the dry season in the Pantanal and the best time to visit for wildlife observation. To combine the Pantanal with good beach weather further south or in Trancoso, consider traveling in August to October. Temperatures in Bahia are steady throughout the year but April to July is usually the wettest season.
