Thinking about taking a trip to Brazil? Consider Lençóis Maranhenses for your next travel destination. Located in Maranhão, a state in Northeastern Brazil, lies over 350 acres of white sand dunes and sparkling lagoons. The nearby towns of Santo Amaro and Barreirinhas provide gateways to the Parque Nacional dos Lençóis Maranhenses. The park is also accessible from Humberto de Campos and Primeira Cruz.

There is not a lot of available information online in English on how to arrive at the Lençóis Maranhenses. I decided to make this post not only to share with you one of the most beautiful places to visit in the world, but also to provide information for foreigners that are not familiar with the travel and accommodation options.
