Day 1 – After having breakfast at our hotel in Sao Luis, we will take a short flight from the city into the National Park of Lencois Maranheses. This is unique experience that doesn’t exists anywhere in the world, flying above a sand desert with blue-green colored small lakes between each sand dune as far as one can see. After landing at the park’s entrance town, Barreirinhas, we do check-in at a guest house. Then we will return to the park, this time by Jeep. Now we will visit some of the lakes; Lagoa Azul & Lagoa Bonita, considered to be some of the most beautiful in the park. Here we will have time to walk around and take a swim in the clear warm water.

The national park of Lenóis Maranhenses is a unique phenomenon in the nature, the only desert in the world with thousands of small lakes. It is located in the North of Brazil, in the state of Maranhão, with São Luis as transfer city. The park has an extension of more than 100 km and is 50 km wide. The dunes seem to not have an end, and between each dune of white sand, there are sweet water lakes of different sizes. The crystal clear water has various colors that vary from clear green to more dark blue - just amazing.

There are two ways of discovering the park, by air and by jeep, and it's recommended to do both. It is just great to walk in the park, from one dune to another and take a fresh bath in some of the lakes, listen to the silence and enjoy the contrasts of colors. This is a unique experience, to see a landscape with no comparison in the world. It is possible to visit the park the whole year. The rain season starts in January and fill up the "dry" lakes, and around May ends the rains. June to September is the best period to visit, when the summer starts and the lakes are full of water and it's sunny with a warm breeze from the sea. It is quite a lot of water already in April whereof you can visit the region, but it might not be so sunny. By the end of the year (end of October & November) it comes a bit windier and the lakes start to be dry again.
