text size A A A

Summer is in full swing and there has never been a better time to get out of the house and explore the world. Gas prices remain at minimum levels and this makes traveling at this point in time an even smarter choice. Of course, consumers will need to find a worthwhile location, which is beautiful, full of excitement, and budget friendly. This is why everyone should consider taking a trip to Brazil. Although the Zika Virus will undoubtedly keep some people at bay, others shouldn’t be bothered in the least. What makes now a better time than ever to travel to Brazil?

Well, if you’re going to be traveling within the upcoming weeks, you may very well get the opportunity to be a part of the Rio Olympics. The media has created a lot of controversy regarding the 2016 Summer Olympics, but this is simply an excuse to grab television ratings. The event will bring together athletes from over 206 nations, with the opening ceremony being held on August the 5th and the closing ceremony taking place on August the 21st. The Olympic Games always manage to spark tourism within the host country and Brazil will be no different. For a once in a lifetime experience, be sure to leave for Brazil as soon as possible. The event is taking place in Rio de Janeiro, so be sure to schedule your trip accordingly.

Another great reason for traveling to Brazil is the Zika Virus itself. Despite the uproar regarding the spread of Zika, it is still unlikely to become a major problem. Yet, the scare has managed to keep travelers at bay. According to HolidayMe, the interest in tourism to Brazil has decreased greatly over the past few minutes, since Zika has become a staple of the mainstream media. This is ultimately a good thing for those that wish to travel to the country. Zika is primarily only dangerous to pregnant women and their toddlers. If you’re not planning on having a child anytime soon, now is an excellent time to visit Brazil. The streets will be dense and the attractions will less crowded. This will make for a more pleasant trip and you won’t have a problem finding lodging.

If you’re willing to wait a little bit longer to travel, you should consider waiting until September. Once September rolls around, the excitement over the Olympics will begin to wind down and fewer people will travel to the Brazilian country. This is great for those that like to visit uncrowded locations. Of course, there is a major Brazilian festival in September and you’ll definitely want to partake in the fun. Brazil gained its Independence on September the 7th. And, the country has a major parade each and every year on this day.

So, if you want to experience the culture and mingle with the Brazilian people, be sure to book your trip at the beginning of September. Just remember that would-be mothers and pregnant women should consider staying away from the country for the time being.
