After check-in and lunch (not included), we’ll take a tour of the imposing Lençóis Maranhenses National Park. On board the 4×4 (dinghy) we’ll cross the Rio Preguiças by ferry and take the sandy trails for about 40 minutes to the park entrance. We’ll visit the best lagoons of the season and their incredibly clear waters, an irresistible invitation to take a dip.

  • DAY 3 – Barreirinhas

    After breakfast, we will be taken to the port where we will board speedboats down the Preguiças River to Caburé Beach. Along the way, coconut palms and mangroves are home to birds, reptiles and mammals. The first stop will be the village of Vassouras, one of the many points where the dunes of the Pequenos Lençóis meet the Rio Preguiças. Monkeys and parrots delight the tourists who stop to refresh themselves with cold drinks served in the shade of the tents. Next, we’ll take the speedboat to the Mandacaru lighthouse, in the village of the same name, which from the top of its eight floors will reveal the exuberance of the place in 360 degrees.

In the afternoon, transfer to Porto dos Tatus where we will take a speedboat through the majestic maze of islands in the Parnaíba Delta towards Caju Bay and Guarás Island. During the tour you can stop at Morro do Meio for a quick walk through the gigantic dunes of Caju Bay and a dip in the waters of the Parnaíba River. The beautiful guará bird with its bright red plumage can be seen in its hundreds as it lands at sunset in a rare and unforgettable spectacle (the sighting of animals depends on several natural factors combined). We’ll return to Porto de Tatus, where we’ll take a fifteen-minute transfer to the hotel. Overnight in Parnaíba.

    we’ll go on a road tour to visit the beaches on the east coast of Piauí and the famous combed tree. After 35 paved kilometers,
    we will arrive at the charming Barra Grande, a beach with clear waters and a paradise for kitesurfers from all over the world, who come in search of the trade winds that blow there. We’ll settle into the charming inns of Barra Grande.

The 4×4 will continue along the seafront to Tatajuba beach. In Lago Grande, we’ll delight in the fishnets in the water. You can also try the curious “live menu” at Didi’s restaurant. The second ferry crossing will take place at Guriú Beach, with its green water channel and cemetery of mangrove trees (the points visited on this route are subject to natural conditions and tidal variations, and may change as previously informed by our team).
    We’ll continue along the seafront to Jericoacoara in time to enjoy the sunset on the famous dune of the same name, a daily ritual for locals and visitors. The overnight stay in Jericoacoara will give us the chance to enjoy the town’s nightlife, its restaurants, stores and bars.
  • DAY 8 – Jericoacoara
    Destination: Jericoacoara
    After breakfast, we’ll take an off-road tour to Lagoa do Paraíso.
