Average time to visit

There are two well-defined seasons in the Pantanal: one dry (May to September) and one rainy (December to March). Wildlife is generally better seen in the Pantanal and Amazon in the dry season, which is a more pleasant time to travel, and when bugs are minimal. Rio canbe visited year-round but is slightly cooler from May to September.
