Brazil trip questions

We're travelling to Brazil in late May. Where would you recommend for hotels in Itataia and Paraty? Is a pousada a good option? Plus questions about timing, driving, Salvador de Bahia.

We're a group of 4, going partly for business in Rio. After work is done, we're thinking of renting a car, and spending 1 day in Itataia and 2 days in Paraty.
Do you have suggestions on where to stay in Itataia and Paraty? Should we consider a pousada? I don't know much about them aside from being told to check them out for lodging.
Also, work ends Friday, so we'll be doing this Saturday-Monday, returning to Rio at the end. Is the weekend an ok time to do this, aside from it being probably more crowded? Any traffic-related concerns?
Any other thoughts about driving in this Rio area? We'll have drivers who can do manual, although automatic would be nice, but I'm not sure if many rental cars have automatic given Expedia's offerings.
After we return to Rio, we're heading to Iguazu Falls, then to Salvador de Bahia. If you have general/specific ideas for Salvador, I'd love to hear about them. I believe we have lodgings sorted out, but suggestions are welcome. We'll likely stay 2 days. Thanks.
