Best time to visit the Lencois National Park is end of May to early June just after the rains have ended and before
the sun and the sea breeze begin to evaporate the smaller lagoons. I got there in early December and took a small...More
I've read about these dunes and the lakes that are created by the rains, but the sheer scale of the national park was wonderful.
Some 4 hours drive from São Luis over some good road and some horrendous roads, punctuated by speed bumps that really...More
Hi all. I'm female and solo traveller. I went to LM on 18/19 Oct 2018.
At this time a lot of the lakes were totally gone and I must say I'm not sure it was worth the hellish journey out of my route to go...More
I am fairly well-traveled, and I have to say that without a doubt, this is one of the top five place I have ever visited. The dunes are breathtaking and the pools are crystal clear. It is new to tourism, so the facilities are simple...More
The Lençóis Maranhenses National Park is a beautiful place to get in touch with the beauty of Mother Nature. It can be accessed from two cities (Barreirinhas and Santo Amaro) and a village (Atins). Access to the Park is closer from Atins or Santo Amaro....More

We just returned from Lençóis, and the lagoons were mostly full to capacity, but some were starting to go go down. I imagine that in another month some of the more shallow ones will have already dried. Still, from what I heard, this was a very heavy rainy season, and locals did expect the lagoons to remain longer.
Hello! Consider Sao Luis is about 3,5-4 hours by car or bus from Barreirinhas, and once there it's a 1,5 hours more by 4WD to reach the dunes: I think it's not feasible as a day trip. Instead of Barreirinhas, you can try... More
Hello! Consider Sao Luis is about 3,5-4 hours by car or bus from Barreirinhas, and once there it's a 1,5 hours more by 4WD to reach the dunes: I think it's not feasible as a day trip. Instead of Barreirinhas, you can try getting the village of Santo Amaro, on the other side of the park, that is just outside the dunes (but the road is poorer, so I don't think it takes lesser to go).
