Kosher Food Options
Contact Chabad Parana for updated information regarding any Kosher food there. Otherwise plenty of snacks and fruits.

Hotels with Points
None.

Airport Transfer Options
Cab - They are metered from FLN to where you are going. We stayed in Barra Lagoa and it was R$55.
Executive Bus - Yellow buses go between major destinations to the airport and bus terminal - R$6.
Public Bus - Not from the airport. But from the bus station it's tricky but doable - R$3.

Major Activities
Water-sports and relaxing. During peak-season (Dec-Jan) there is plenty to do, such as scuba diving, gliding, boat tours and more. We were there during winter break (Jul) and the waves were great for surfing, and the dunes at Joaquina were great for sandboarding.

There are beautiful beaches all over the island of Florianopolis. During the winter the north beaches tend to be the warmest as the wind doesn't attack it directly. Center/east beaches are really nice, the best for surfing, but can get cold. Mole and Joaquina are the most popular from those. Didn't trek down south on my trip there, but the beaches are supposedly great as well, though very calm and sleepy kind of towns next to them and people going fishing there.

A small town on the west side of the island, has a boardwalk and bicycle path along the water, nice place to go for sunset. Old historic architecture there, many buildings there hundreds of years old. It's about 10-15 minutes north of downtown FLN.

why not go to campos for the shabbasim and go to Iguazu mid week for a few days. make sure to go the argentine side too. I think Manuas is a pit and not worth it unless youre going on the amazon but with kids thats not a good idea either.  Go to IGU - you wont regret it.
IGU is a must see.

Manaus city is a pit, the only reason why people go to Manaus is for the Amazon only.

I would say it's mostly for that. I enjoyed the city as well, has some cool places, including the port, marketplace etc. MotoTaxi from anywhere to anywhere in the city was R$5.

Online visas are live!  Perfect timing since I was about to run to the consulate today.  Seems to be cheaper too, just $40 plus a service fee.  The system is a PITA though.

Cheaper at $40 but only valid for 2 years, the $160 was for 10 years, so net is more expensive. Though I prefer smaller fee for less time.

I'm planning on a trip to Brazil in late july early August,\

I'd have liked to go in the winter but timing is everything + the weather looks decent for those months.

I'll have 7-10 days to spend & the 3 places I'd like to cover are Rio, Iguazu & Manaus. If I do Manaus ideally I'd route though there on the way in or out.

Do I have enough time to do all three & if yes should I stick with Manaus vs other places in SA like Buenos Aires?

Best routing for such a trip?

FWIW we didn’t get yellow fever shots when we went to MAO, though this was about 4 years ago.

If you appreciate nature then skip Buenos Aires and go to MAO.

Chabad Shliach in Manaus says I don't need it, additionally  there seems to be a nationwide shortage of yellow fever vaccine in the USA (they had to destroy their stock due to a storage issue), almost impossible to find it here

Send regards to the shliach there :)
Might not need it in the city, but check if you need it on any river excursions.

Chabad Shliach in Manaus says I don't need it, additionally  there seems to be a nationwide shortage of yellow fever vaccine in the USA (they had to destroy their stock due to a storage issue), almost impossible to find it here

IIRC shliach told me the same when I was there and we slept in the jungle on a 2 day tour. He recommended us a tour to use, which went great.
