Impressive and a stunning Place. Worth visiting. Did buy the trip from a agency in Barreirinhas. Ferry across the river is also special for European tourists.

3 very nice day trips: - Bonita, a bit far (40 min), but an amazing view of the dunes, and good quality of lakes; - Azul, closer and a wonderful sunset; - Boat to Caburé.

great view from Bonita Lake, very nice sunset too, but can be crowded. The 4x4 journey in/out is fun too, be prepared for a bumpy ride
