Please help with 15 day Brazil itinerary

Jump to last reply

We are a couple in our early 50's, and avid travelers. We like architecture, culture, foreign cuisines, nature walks etc. This will be our first trip to South America, being planned for Dec 2011/Jan 2012. We are planning a 15-day trip to Brazil (not counting the flight time in reaching Brazil and back). Our first cut proposed itinerary is :

1. Land at Rio ; spend 4 days (with possible side trips)
2. Go to Manaus; spend 3 days
3. Go to Salvador (Bahia); spend 4 days
4. Go to Iguazu Falls; spend 2 days
5. Go to Sao Paulo; spend 2 days and fly out.

Is the above itinerary doable ? Would you recommend anything different ? We have deliberately left out Pantanal, as we were very recently on a wildlife safari trip to East Africa, and have had our fill of wildlife viewing for a few years ! We are hoping to see some of the Amazon rainforests when we visit Manaus. I don't know if it is a good idea. Rio, Salvador and Iguazu are an absolute must.

Would appreciate as much advice as you can give, including logistics of traveling around to the above destinations (I presume we have to fly from one place to another ?). What is the best and cheapest way to move from one destination to another in Brazil ?
