    Unless you are actually in Sao Paulo and have some particular reason for wanting to deal in person, I would suggest that BACC Travel, with offices in Rio, New York, Boston (and others), or Chang Express (Google them both.) consistently offer the cheapest fares to Brazil from the U.S. From Canada, they may have flight connections.

    there is an argentina agency called despegar.com and i think they are called descolar.com in brasil. but if you open their main page you will get a link to their brasilian address. there is also asatej.com.ar in argentina.
    i would imagine you are looking for airfares within the contry or the continent?
    good luck. always include taxes into your consideration since taxes can add up the total. they may say 99 usd for round trip to BA from sao paolo but the taxes alone would be higher than that.

    Note that tickets originating in Brazil are usually substantially higher than for the exact same route originating from the U.S.---taxes perhaps--irregardless of how or through whom the flight is booked.

    One more note for any future fare researchers:
    We were online looking for tickets (US to Brazil) at all discount sites, including the ones the other poster mentioned.
    Brol had the cheapest flights. However, the website wouldn't work to pay for the ticket and the customer service line kept us on hold for an hour without reaching an agent.
    Chang Express, also mentioned above had a fare that was only US$21 more than Brol. They are very responsive on the phone.
    Guess who we chose?
