How many times have you tried to get hotel reservations in Brazil, tried to go to vacation in Brazil, or rent a car in Brazil, and when you go to call you realize that no one is there because of the time difference?
The exact time in Brazil is based on the time zones for Brazil. We will always try to give you the exact time for Brazil. There might be slight differences, since the time zones for Brazil might change due to daylight savings time (DST).
Time changes in Brazil are usually done to adapt citizen and tourist activity to the solar cycle. This allows for greater usage of daylight, reducing dependency on electricity. That is why the time is sent ahead one hour in the spring for Brazil, and falls back one hour in the fall for Brazil. Adding an extra hour of daylight helps Brazil improve its tourism and depend less on Brazil's electricity supplies.
