Is Brazil right for me?

I want to take a one-month vacation outside Europe sometime before the end of the year. Brazil is one of the destinations I'm considering. I enjoy hiking, scenery, wildlife, discovering new cities/cultures/food. I also wouldn't mind spending up to 5 days on the beach and doing some snorkelling. Brazil seems to tick most of these boxes, however there are some things which are making me hesitant to choose it. The first is Iguazu, which is meant to be one of the country's main attractions - I went there last year. I've also been to the Amazon (twice) and was also in the rainforest in Borneo just two years ago. While I wouldn't mind visiting the Amazon again, I can't say I'm too keen. I'd like to check out the Pantanal, but I am finding it hard to justify the hassle of flying there via Sao Paolo for the maximum of 4 nights that my budget allows, and I'm not interested in spending any time in Sao Paolo itself. Apart from that, my preferred (although flexible) travel period would be mid-Nov to mid-Dec which, apparently isn't ideal for the Pantanal.

Is it worth visiting Brazil if I skip Iguazu, Amazon, and the Pantanal, or would it make more sense to go elsewhere? The other option I'm looking at is visiting three of the following: Guatemala, Belize, El Salvador, and Nicaragua.
