Pousada Buriti

Comfortable and practical base for trips into the spectacular dune landscapes of the Lençois Maranhenses.

Pousada Buriti is a comfortable and practical base for trips into the spectacular dune landscapes of the Lençois Maranhenses. Situated in the centre of Barreirinhas – the gateway town for the national park – the hotel is modestly appointed with a few splashes of colour, huge bathrooms and a hammock outside each of the chalet-style rooms. There is a swimming pool with an adjacent bar and a restaurant serving dishes typical of the region.
