We are in currently planning our honeymoon to SA for the first 18 days of May 2013. We have never been to SA we would really appreciate any help we can get!!
At the moment we are considering the following itinerary:
Fly Ireland - Rio - Transfer to Buzios for 3 nights to relax, Transfer to Rio for 5 nights. Fly Rio to BA - 5 nights in BA, Train to El Tigre for 3 nights and return to BA for flight home.
As we are typical pale skinned Irish we do not really have any interest sun lounging or lying out on a beach for a day. We would ideally love to experience some of the 'real' SA. Are we wasting too much time by taking in Buzios and Rio for a total of 8 nights? If so we are considering flying down to El Calafete for 3 nights and shorten our trips to Rio.
Any comments or recommendations would be great. Open to any ideas, struggling with itinerary and don't want to ruin the trip by taking in too much either.
