Check out the 2019 national holidays and plan that special trip now

The new year is coming and every Brazilian traveler is already keeping an eye on the calendar to find out what the perfect holidays to travel in Brazil in 2019. Well, next year will not have as many holidays as 2018, not as many possibilities to extend the days off, but programming correctly will give you the opportunity to hit the road and enjoy a lot.

In 2019, Brazilians will be able to count on five national holidays, as many dates fall on Saturday or Sunday. The best ones to plan a trip will be the Carnival, which will be on March 5th, a Tuesday, and Corpus Christi, which falls on a Thursday and, despite being an optional point, counts as a holiday in many cities in Brazil.

The scenario is more optimistic for those who live in Sao Paulo since the city's birthday, celebrated on January 25th, falls on a Friday and the state holiday of the Constitutionalist Revolution of 1932, celebrated on July 9th, will be on a Tuesday.
