I am currently in SP and planning to visit Rio on the end of my assignment. I have not much time to visit the websites since I am working most of the time. Kindly help me to arrange my trip.
1) What is the better way exprience time wise to go to Rio, by bus or plane. I will be leaving Brazil by SO, so I need to go back to SP.
2) Is Rio easy to navigate as SP City?
3) Is there many cheap but safe acomodation? How about the cost transport, food etc. I am very budget conscious becase the exchange rate of Real to our currency is quite high. Average food allowance per day.
4) What are the places that I can visit there?
Thank you very much for your reply. You can add tips aside from the question above.

I am travelling for work to Sao Paulo beginning of March. I have a few girlfriends joining me at the tail end of my trip for a lil girls getaway. We will be staying for 5 days and 4 nights and want to travel to Rio as well in that time. I was thinking a vacation rental may be a good idea - so we dont have to lug our bags everywhere.
Anyone have any recommendations on areas/rentals that would be a safe places for us to stay. We would like to be accessible to restaurants and bars...but primarily want to be in a safe neighborhood.
Also - what do you recommend for travel to Rio - plane, bus or train?
Thanks in advance :)

Hello peeps. Which airlines fly from Garulhos to Santos Dumont in Rio and how much do they cost? Would I be better going to Congonhas, how long does it take to get from one to the other?
I have booked to stay at the Praca Da Avore in Sao Paulo for my first couple of nights in Brazil. I fly into Guaralhos and am getting a bit of a headache trying to work out the best way to get to the hostel. On the hostel website it suggests either getting the bus & metro or getting a "hostel transfer" ( that costs R$80 which is a bit pricey for me.) Thing is I get into SP at 5.30am and am a bit worried that all the commuters will be on the metro when I get on.
I thought I saw somewhere that the bus from Guaralhos to Congonhas went near the hostel but now am thinking I imagined it. Any advice is much appreciated.
I'll be connecting through GRU from Buenos Aires up to Canada. IS 2 hours enough to accomplish this (I fly into Term 1 and depart Term 2)? Do I need to go through immigration? I will be transferring airlines as well (Aerolineas Argentinas to Air Canada).
