Climate Campos do Jordão features a subtropical highland climate under the Köppen climate classification abbreviated ''Cfb Cwb''. Despite its location within the tropics, due to the high elevation, temperatures here are cooler than one might expect. The resort town features “spring-like” temperatures throughout the year, with mild summers and cool winters. However, by Brazilian standards, the town is downright cold. In summer, maximum temperatures average 24°C 75°F and minimum temperatures average 13°C 55°F. In winter, maximum temperatures average 18°C 64°F and minimum temperatures average 4°C 39°F. Temperatures drop below zero sometimes in winter (lowest ever recorded: -7.3°C 19°F), but snow is very rare. Similar to many other places with this climate, Campos do Jordão sees a noticeable drying trend during its “low-sun” season. The city sees on average 1800 mm of precipitation, most of which falls from September through March. The city, due to its elevation, is relatively cold for Brazilian standards. The winter is normally the dry season and the colder weather allows for warm fireplaces and winter foods such as fondue, soups and hot chocolate. In spring and summer, one can see ''Hydrangea macrophylla'' blossoming all over the town.

They provide charcoal and pasture for cattle; on the lower slopes there are several health and tourist resorts, such as Campos do Jordão, Brazil's highest city. The name ''Mantiqueira'' derives from a Tupi (Tupi language) word meaning "mountains that cry", denoting the large number of springs

(arborismo), horseback riding, ATV riding, and motorbike riding. The mountain ranges provide unique panoramic views and much of the area is still undeveloped. Also, in order to cater to the large number of visitors, several bars, lounges, discos and clubs will open up during the winter months. *
