I am currently in Montanita, Ecuador, traveling solo. I'll be here for another week, then possibly on to the Galapagos, but not sure. If anyone is around and wants me to meet up, send me a message.

All depends on which part of Brazil. Taken from CDC website:

"Currently, Brazil recommends yellow fever vaccination for travelers to the following states:

•All areas of Acre, Amapá, Amazonas, Distrito Federal (including the capital city of Brasília), Goiás, Maranhão, Mato Grosso, Mato Grosso do Sul, Minas Gerais, Pará, Rondônia, Roraima, and Tocantins.
•Other designated areas of the following states: Bahia, Paraná, Piauí, Rio Grande do Sul, Santa Catarina, and São Paulo. (Refer to the Updated CDC Yellow Fever Map for Brazil to see areas of these states with risk for yellow fever transmission.) Vaccination is also recommended for travelers visiting Iguassu Falls.
•Vaccination is NOT recommended for travel to the following coastal cities: Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo, Salvador, Recife, and Fortaleza.

Brazil currently does not require yellow fever vaccination for entrance into the country. However, travelers are strongly urged to get the yellow fever vaccine before traveling to an area of Brazil with risk of yellow fever transmission."
