The South East Brazil region
The South East region of Brasil is the most developed and attracts people from all over the world, germinating an evolved Brazilian culture with bright and brave, compassionate and passionate, friendly and receptive people.
Nelson Rodrigues, a famous brazilian dramaturg from Rio wisely said once: "The Brazilian is a holiday", resuming pretty well our beautiful and exotic culture and people.
The climate is tropical, with average temperatures in between 20ºC and 30ºC and the best time to come is in May and June, because it doesn't rain much. But you can expect an average humidity from 70% to 90% all year round.
The beautiful vegetation is the lush Atlantic Rainforest and this region is where you can find the biggest part of it. There is only 6.5% of its original remaining in Brasil.
