Brazil : Itinerary help required

Jump to last reply

We are in the early stages of planning a Brazil trip in November 2011, for about 16-17 days. We are in our mid-50's, avid independent travelers, going to South America for the first time. Not very interested in wildlife viewing (we had our fill in Africa recently), nor very keen on going to the Amazon.

We are potentially looking at Rio, Iguazu Falls (both of these a MUST), plus possibly Salvador and Fernando de Noronha. The latter two destinations are open to change, and are willing to add other destinations. Our interest is culture, architecture, and to generally soak up the atmosphere of a country. Have no idea if the above combination of destinations is doable in one trip, or what modifications we should make.

Also, is November a good time to go to Brazil ? All suggestions are welcome.
