Can two non Brazilian get married in Brazil ?

Can a US citizen go to Brazil and marry a man there who is a citizen of Nigeria only in Brazil on some sort of temporary Visa?  In other words, can two non-Brazilian citizens get married in Brazil?

Thank you.

As far as I know you would be able to.  But it would be a race against the clock to get all your documents in order before your tourist visas expire.  If you arrived with all documents in order, got them translated and went direct to the cartorio you should be able to do it.  No laws against it.  Let us know if you do it.
