16 day Brazil itinerary - comments please

Jump to last reply

I've been struggling to finalize an itinerary to take advantage of either a GOL or TAM airpass - following is available right now (tick tock, I know!)

January 18th, 2012 - Arrival Sao Paolo - transfer to Rio (is 90 minutes enough time for the connection from an international arrival?) 5 nights in Rio at an apartment in Arpoador

Rio to Natal - transfer to Pipa - 4 nights in a beach front villa

Natal to Salvador - 2 nights (no hotel yet)

Salvador to Manaus - Tropical Manaus for one night then Uakari Lodge for 4 nights

Manaus to Sao Paolo - then onto BsAs for a month in an apartment.

Note - we will visit Iguazu Falls in March on our return to Sao Paolo to fly home to Canada - also might spend time in Sao Paolo at that time.

I spent a lot of time trying to get to Fernando de Noronha but the flights are really expensive as is accommodation so I substituted Pipa. (also have been considering a beach/villa north of Natal instead but it's pretty undeveloped - Maracajau - although we could scuba dive there - comments?)

Any comments would be appreciated. I've done so many itinerary iterations my head is spinning.
