The climate of Maceió is tropical, meaning hot, dry and humid during most of the year, with an average temperature of 25 degrees Celsius. Summer is from December to March, and temperatures then can be very hot. May to September are more mild, but this is when the rain may come.

Tourists should be aware that Maceió is reputed to be one of the most violent cities in Brazil, together with Recife and Vitória, but common sense about where to go and how to behave are always the best defences.
