I agree that the itinerary seems solid. Five days in Rio is plenty, and you could also do a day trip to Niterói or even some beaches near the city.

If you plan to visit the Brazilian side of Iguazu Falls (which I absolutely recommend), check out the bird sanctuary. It's definitely worth a couple of hours.

For BA, since you'll have a pretty long stay there, you might consider taking a day trip to Tigre and the Delta region (or even to Colonia in Uruguay. taking the Buquebús ferry).

Enjoy the trip!
