Location: Vila Guará Hotel is located at the beachfront in the remote village of Atins, in the state of Maranhao, Brazil. The village is right at the entrance of the Lençóis Maranhenses National Park, bordered by dunes and clear freshwater lagoons which are less than 1 km away.
How to get here: There are two options:
Fly to Sao Luis (SLZ). Here you have to take a land transfer till Barreirinhas, and then a boat transfer on Rio Preguicas till Cabure, followed by another boat crossing to Atins. Distances are long and an overnight in Barreirinhas would be needed to break the journey.
Fly to Jijoca (JJD) or to Fortaleza (FOR). Coming from the other side takes a longer time and also requires at least one overnight in Parnaiba or Barra Grande, to break the journey. Then you would continue by road to Tutoia and Cabure, followed by a boat crossing to Atins.
