14 days in Brazil mid-december through New Year's Eve- help please

Jump to last reply

With work changes, we've needed to change the location and timing of our honeymoon. We'll be heading to Brazil for 14 days (probably Dec. 18 through January 1). The last 4 days or so of the trip (including new year's eve) will be in Rio with some friends (including a Brazilian friend) at a rented house.

It'd be great if anybody could help us out with advice on a few things:

1) Where should we go to honeymoon by ourselves for the first 8-10 days of the trip? We are interested in beaches, beautiful sites, food, culture (more so experiences or interactions and less so museums). Olinda? Fernando de Noronha? Bahia? Canoa Quebrada?

2) About how much does it cost and what are recommended/available ways to get to/from Fernando de Noronha? (we're trying to figure out if going there is cost prohibitive)

3) Since we will be in Brazil over Christmas and some areas might shut down- do you have any advice for us on that or where we might want to be then?

4) Any suggestions regarding getting Brazil airpasses?

5) We likely don't have time to visit the Amazon on this trip if we definitely want some beach time too, right?

Thanks in advance for any thoughts.
