The best time for you to visit Brazil will be mainly dependent on what type of climate you prefer and you want to experience in the country. This is especially true since these different parts all enjoy a different nature in terms of weather and habitat.
If you will be visiting the Pantanal, the Amazon rainforest & the Amazon Rivers your best bet would be during the dry season, from April to September. visiting during this time will avoid you the humid weather and allow you to enjoy these wonderful places. If your visiting either Rio de Janeiro, Buzios, São Paulo, and Salvador then from October to April would be the best time to visit. Last but not least the Iguazu Falls have a relatively unchanging climate throughout the year.
The official currency of Brazil is the Brazilian real, represented as BRL, the exchange rate is as follows:

Generally speaking, Brazil is relatively safe for visitors & tourists alike. The extreme or violent scenarios we often hear about are not usually encountered by tourists. It is important however to keep your guard up, keep your possessions safe and close at hand and generally exercise caution, especially when moving through Brazil's urban areas such as Salvador, Recife, and Rio de Janeiro.
Officially the country is Called Brasil and is also written as so in the Portuguese language. In the English language, however, it's written with a Z, aka Brazil.
You will not need a visa if you will be travelling, as a tourist of course, from Canada or the United States of America for a stay up to 90 days.
There are no special vaccination you would need to take before going to Brazil other than the ones recommended by the CDC and WHO, which are as follows: hepatitis A, hepatitis B, typhoid, yellow fever, rabies, meningitis, polio, measles, mumps and rubella (MMR), Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria and pertussis), chickenpox, shingles, pneumonia and influenza. Additionally, its highly advised that you follow the preventive practices for the Coronavirus, maintain the required distance & always have a pair of gloves handy, some sanitizer, a face mask on when you're outside & wash regularly.
IN brazil there are many means of transportation to get you safely from point A to point B. The large main cities of Brazil have modern metro networks, buses, cities and minivans.
How you're gonna pack and what types of clothes you're gonna pack will highly depend, believe it or not, on where you're gonna spend your time in the country. IN general comfortable and casual is the way to go but pack some more conservative attire for your time in Sao Paulo, Brazil's own NYC. Other than that, light dresses, shorts, colourful dresses, some high heels, t-shirts & tunics are all fair game. And don't worry about being judged, Brazilians are proud of their body and don't shy away from showing some skin.
Most of what you need is available in Brazil but these are some items you might like to pack with you just in case:
Hiking boots with ankle support
Flip flops or other
Hiking socks made of Smartwool
Sweat wick shirts
Activewear pants or leggings
The most famous city in Brazil is also the same city that many mistakes as the capital of the tropical country. Rio de Janeiro. The city is a carnival of attractions, good times, and fun lively locals, the capital, however, is Brasilia.
