Here is a repost from my other website Learn Moor About Bahia 
Disclaimer:  Before I list the seasons and different regions in Brazil it should be noted that the Equator runs through the Northern region of the country.  Most areas are very nice ALL YEAR including the Northeast (which includes Bahia), the Amazon, even Rio de Janeiro to the South.  Typical four season models do not apply.

Brazil Travel: main destinations

Amazon (the rainforest)
Pantanal (for bird and animal life watching)
Iguassu Falls (the world largest waterfalls)
Rio de Janeiro (the capital of fun and beach life)
Salvador da Bahia (musical and beach life in an afro-american style)
Bahia, Fortaleza, Recife: hubs for TOP WORL tropical beaches
Sao Paulo (the business and industrial heart of Brazil)
Brazil's South (Florianopolis, Santa Catarina and other south destinations)

Best time to go and visit Brazil
Weather big picture

Brazil is basically an all-year round destination. But you should consider some weather particularities and conditionings, namely if you intend to travel to the Pantanal or the Amazon. You shouldn’t forget that Brazil is a very wide country, covering half of South America and different climate zones.

Seasons in Brazil are the reverse of North hemisphere states: 

Spring: 22nd September - 21st December
Summer: 22nd December - 21st March
Autumn: 22nd March - 21st June
Winter: 22nd June - 21st September
But we shouldn’t deduce too much from this division. Truly, this four season pattern is only applicable to southern Brazil. Most of Brazil territory shares a two-season pattern: a rainy season (the winter) and a non-rainy one (the summer).
And it is the rain – not the cold – that you should equate if your destination is the Northeast, the Amazon, or even Rio de Janeiro and surroundings. Though most showers usually last no more than one hour or two, with subsequent sun reappearing, there are more persistent rainfalls, namely at regions with pronounced rainy seasons as the Amazon and the Pantanal

Best Brazilian Tropical Beaches: Bahia
Best time to go

Salvador da Bahia has 50 km of brazilian top resorts with hundreds of natural swimming pools, surrounded by coconut groves: Barra, at the very city, Ondina, Rio Vermelho, Amaralina, Pituba, Armação, Corsário, Jaguaribe, Piatã, Itapoã, Stella Maris, Flamengo, Aleluia…
But Salvador da Bahia, as Rio de Janeiro, is much more than just good beaches. There is always music at the enormous straw sunshades that look over the beaches, especially in the more central beach, the Barra.
Salvador da Bahia is the heart of an amazing culture, blending a strong African culture with a European one. Something that is visible in the every day life: in the musical spirit, in the exoticism of the place, in the odd cuisine of the region.

Bahia (and Salvador) is anyway just a travel option. Near Salvador, or near northeastern hubs as Recife and Fortaleza, there are many other dozens (or hundreds and thousands, to be more literally) of world top beaches deserving your visit.

Best time to travel to Bahia and other Brazilian tropical beaches

What's the best time to go to Salvador da Bahia, Fortaleza, Recife or other resorts near these towns (Praia do Forte, Porto Galinhas, Natal, etc.)? They all have agreeable temperatures all year round. Temperatures rarely dip below 25ºC (77ºF) or rise beyond 32 or 33ºC (90ºF). Winter temperatures are just 3-4ºC degrees below the «summer» temperatures.

The factor you may equate to your travel, is the rain and the ambiance. In Salvador and Recife regions the rainy season begins around the beginning of April, and lasts three months, more or less. At Fortaleza the rain begins a little later (advanced April or May) and lasts also three months.

The rainy season is less popular and festive. In Bahia there is an interruption of the many daily musical and popular events. In this sense, the rainy season is the worse season to go and visit the Brazilian Northeast cost places. Anyhow, those are all year round beach places, and showers rarely last enough to spoil your travel.

Hotel prices and best time to visit Brazil

Brazilian hotels – and the daily cost of life – are very affordable for European or North-American patterns. And the availability is not a problem either.
But you should have into account some exceptions in your travel to Brazil:

- the availability and prices of brazilian hotels are higher in Brazilian summer time (22nd December - 21st March), during which most south-americans have their holidays.

- in Rio de Janeiro and Salvador da Bahia hotels are scarce and more expensive in the Carnival period.
