Should I visit Rio?

Brazil Filter: I'll be in Sao Paolo for a week in early February and would appreciate some hive-mind input on the trip. Details within.

The trip is (very) preliminary research for a new book. My goal is to get some first-hand experience with the country, culture and business environment.
I'm arranging meetings now, and expect there will be holes in my schedule.
Here's my question: Is Rio sufficiently different from Sao Paolo that it would make sense for me to spend a couple of days there? And are there enough things to do that I could fill those scheduling gaps productively if I spent the week in Sao Paolo?
By way of background, I live in Asia, it's my first trip to South America, I'm traveling solo, don't speak Portuguese and money isn't an issue.
Thanks in advance.
