Full description
Discover the Lençóis Maranhenses National Park — a stunning region formed by the contrast between dunes and natural lagoons created by rainwater during the rainy season — with 2 incredible days of activities. Marvel at the wild scenery of the desert and the scenic beauty of the lagoons in this unique landscape. Day 1 Depart from your hotel in São Luis or the SLZ-Marechal Cunha Machado International Airport for flights arriving before 6:30 AM. Arrive in Barreirinhas, and set out at around 2 PM in a 4x4 vehicle to cross on the ferry. Then, follow a trail to get to the Lençois Maranhenses National Park, admire the dunes, and take a refreshing dip in the clean, blue lagoons. After watching the spectacular sunset at the top of the dune, return to Barreirinhas. Day 2 Depart around 8 AM on a speedboat tour of Preguiças River, a calm river with lots of different typical trees and palms on its margins. The first stop will be in Vassouras village, at the limit of the dunes. Interact with the monkeys, refresh with some coconut water, and peruse the local art. Next, head to the village of Mandacaru where it's possible to see and climb a lighthouse. Soak up a panoramic view of the region, the park, the river, and the sea. Make your last stop in Caburé village, an arm of sand with the river on one side, and the sea on the other. Spend some free time having lunch and swimming in the river or the sea. Finally, transfer back to your hotel in São Luis or the SLZ-Marechal Cunha Machado International Airport for flights departing after 11 PM.

Superb experience! The tour was perfectly organized from start to finish. The 4x4 was just great, thrills because you have to hang on. The view of the dunes is more magical, no complaints, we really have time to enjoy it. The boat super, the stopovers are long and we had time to discover and swim. At the top, I recommend 100% it's to be done! PS: Do not take a guide, it is not at all necessary.

the driver and the guide picked us up at the airport at around 8 am and from there we went directly to our hotel in Barreirinhas which we had booked. We make a meal stop etc because the journey takes around 4 hours. then around 1:30 p.m. we are split up to do the activity. already going there is an adventure in itself: with our car in safari mode we cross the river then 1 hour of route to access Lencois. the road is difficult it is like progressing in the desert in 4 × 4. if back problems or motion sickness to avoid absolutely but we, we loved it! then 2 possible paths. and we choose according to our physical condition. the spectacle is magnificent arrived on the spot. and André our guide always takes us further to discover and find ourselves alone otherwise we can also stay swimming .. the 2nd day crossing the river is magnificent. mangrove dunes. Andre stays with us until we return and explains everything. awesome guide
