The climate of Rio de Janeiro (Brazil)
Rio de Janeiro is the capital of the state of Rio de Janeiro and is located on the coast of Brazil. Rio de Janeiro is known for its carnival, the immense statue of Jesus Christ looking out over the city and its beaches with famous names such as Ipanema and Copacabana. Rio de Janeiro is situated where a tropical savannah climate and a moderate savannah climate meet. Temperatures are high enough all year round to enjoy the beaches, tropical drinks, beach soccer and beautiful women in miniscule bikinis. During the summer a rainy day may spoil your day on the beach. During the winter it is most pleasant in Rio de Janeiro, or Rio for short. The (local) winter is the best time to visit Rio; also because the Brazilians do not have holiday then so hotel prices are much lower than during the local summer.
