Second Try for First Time to Argentina & Brazil

Jump to last reply

My husband (73) and I (66) had a wonderful trip planned for this past December. ...until he fell and broke his leg on Thanksgiving night. Trip off. I am now (after sufficient time to pout) going to rebook it but thought I would run through my proposed itinerary to get comments and see if I should amend any segment, length of time or lodging from previous itinerary. We are experienced travelers with interests in the local culture. Meandering is a favorite activity in a new city, besides the "must see" places.
5 days Buenos Aires -Duque Boutique Hotel in/near Palermo Soho
am flight , Lan, to Iguazu Falls, Ar - arrive noonish, 2 nts Hotel das Cataratas
pm flight, Tam, to Salvador de Bahia, 4 or 5 day? Casa do Amarelindo
Tam flt, Salvador to Rio, 3, 4, or 5 days including New Year's Eve, day
love to stay at Ipanema Beach but prices outrageous at this time - (don't want to pay
more than $400/nt
previous booking was at O Veleiero B & B up in the hills.
Also, any thoughts on discount airlines or booking engines?
