Pousadas in Lençóis Maranhenses
The place: Atins is a very small fishing village situated at the mouth of the River Preguiças where it meets the Atlantic Ocean. It acts as the eastern gateway to the Lençois Maranheneses for those coming overland by 4x4 from Jericoacoara in Ceará or the Delta de Parnaiba and Barra Grande in Piauí. Most of the actual tourist agencies which offer tours around the area are based in Barreirinhas, but all pousadas in Atins can organise private guides and tours and visits to the Lagoa Verde (Green Lagoon) and Lagoa do Mario (Mario's Lagoon) are a must. The village itself has a very gentle pace of life. Your phone won't work and wi-fi (where available) is likely to be intermittent. A great place to base yourself if you appreciate silence and want to stay right in the dunes.
Special tips: On excursions through the dunes go wearing your swimming gear and take a towel so you can have a refreshing dip in the lakes. And don't forget sunscreen, hat and mosquito spray!
