we did Rio in  24 hours
you can do IGU also in a short time (without going to Argentina although you will be missing out on 1/2 the experience) you can PM me if you'd like. Id' be happy to help you

Dunno, what i do i know is I did get the "runs" from something... an ice cube? the Falls? a Tea? the Bottled Water (doubtful)
I would drink the bottled water again and stay away from the ice cubes

passed one shul, nothing going on then on the way to a mall down the block we passed a shul, was a surreal experience, I was not looking for one, per se and had forgotten momentarily about Mincha but as we walked passed the guard opened the gate and I look up and it’s a shul
(My minimal research did not find much in the way on Mincha/maariv options… I guess godaven doesn’t have it all)
The Copacabana Shul – Kehillat Yaakov on Rua Capalão Alvares Da Silva otherwise now as Rabbi Staubers

So Hashgacha Pratis get us a Mincha Maariv and a shiur in Portuguese. They offer Shabbos meals for anyone interested, just contact the rabbi.
it actually is on GoDaven, my apologies http://godaven.com/detail.asp?Id=3291&Name=Sinagoga%20de%20COPACABANA
