Book your flights to Palmas Airport and take in the beautiful, unspoiled nature of this Brazilian gem.
Palmas has a tropical savannah climate, with two distinct seasons – rainy season and dry season. The dry season from May to September is hot hot hot – the perfect time to kick back and enjoy the local beaches or to plunge into the clear waters under a stunning waterfall. On the other hand, during the rainy season of October to April, the heavy rain and overcast skies make for more manageable midday temperatures. The best time to book cheap flights to Palmas is from February to May.
