Now that we’re back home and normality has returned, I wanted to write a note to express our thanks for an incredible journey and thank you for the effort you put into making it so special. One word describes the organisation of our trip. Flawless. The hotels used by LUSH were each beautiful in their own way and staffed by the most amazingly helpful people, our local guides and the transport from place to place was always there. As easy and wonderful as it was for myself and Jeremy, I’m sure that the work and effort you put in behind the scenes to organise everything required enormous amounts of energy. Many other tours I have done in the past have not run as smoothly as this tour. LUSH Pathways is to be congratulated on a tour organised with such precision! Besides your knowledge of tourism in Brazil, it is clear that your relationships with all the people you use in that area, ranging from people in the hotels to the guides and transport people, are relationships in which these people know the company well and have a lot of respect for you. I know how hard it is and how long it takes to cultivate solid relationships. To top it off, the location! Your pictures and descriptions do not do the Northeast of Brazil justice..but then again, I don’t think that would be possible. Each place we went to was phenomenal. Sao Luis was special because it was the first stop on our tour – what a beautiful, simple, relaxed little city. Our favourite stop was Jericoacoara – we wished we could have spent more time there but have plans to return. We have both been converted to LUSH Pathwayism and we shall be spreading the gospel. Thank you so much once again, we shall be telling anyone who cares to listen that they must visit Brazil and that they must use you.

Day 1 Arrival Day in São Luís
São Luís is the only city in Brazil founded by the French. A walk around the Historical Centre is the perfect way to see the beauty of this charming colonial town rich in folkloric traditions. Enjoy dinner, the night life and the live music in the main square!

Day 2 Lençóis Maranhenses National Park
You start early in the morning with a transfer to Barreirinhas. Beautiful remote scenery, oases with crystalline waters and white sand dunes are some of the attractions of this 1550 square kilometer national park. You will visit the area called “Grandes Lençóis”, meaning “Big Bed Sheets” because of the appearance of the sand dunes. This is a stunning part of Brazil that few people have the privilege to visit.

Day 3 Rio Preguiças / Cabure and return to São Luís
A boat journey along the “Rio Preguiças” takes you to Caburé. Stop at Mandacaru Village – go up to the light house for an amazing 360-degree view and stop at Vassouras - part of which is called the “Pequenos Lençóis” or “Small Bed Sheets” – an Environmental Protected Area where you may see some capuchin monkeys! Have lunch (not included) in Cabure, a town between the river and the Atlantic Ocean and return to Barreirinhas. Be transferred back to São Luís and enjoy the last night of this tour.
