You'll ultimately decide for yourself, but I would hope you avoid driving in Sao Paulo or Rio. The airports of both are located outside of the city, but the one if Rio is across a highway from a 5 mile long shantytown. The airport in Sao Paulo is also near a highway, but no shantytowns. I would say that it would be pretty easy to drive from one airport to the other, the real problem though is if you want to get near the cities. Remember, the signs are in Portuguese and traffic is mad, much like Boston, except they don't always respect lane lines. Most Brazilian men grow up thinking the will be the next Aryton Senna, but don't drive performance cars or have even 10% of his ability, but they still try.
