Mandacaru

Mandacaru is a village in Maranhão, on the outskirts of Lençóis Maranhenses Mostly serving as a quick stop for daytrippers from Barreirinhas, there is now a small inn in the building.

See

Climb the 163 steps of the lighthouse to get quite a few.

Eat

No real restaurants, but any of the bars should be able to serve you a cheap set dish around lunch.

Sleep

Ask for a private rom or a hammock.

Go next

Just a few hundred metres away is the village of Bar da Hora, perhaps unique on the planet in being named after a bar (now closed).
