Flyboat ride from Barreirinhas to Caburé

The classic tour from Barreirinhas by motorboat along the Preguiças River lasts a whole day. The route is to visit the villages of Vassouras, Mandacaru and Caburé, which belongs to the municipality of Barreirinhas.

The region is very rustic, full of little houses with buriti straw roofs. Those coming from Barreirinhas need to take a boat at the pier on Avenida Beira Rio. The route goes for about 40 km on the Preguiças River.

Caburé is the final destination of the meeting of the River with the Atlantic Ocean. This route is about 40 kilometers along the river.

The Preguiças River got its name because it has almost no current, due to its charming curves. Another curiosity is that the waters of Preguiça have no routine, in one period of the day they go to the river and in another to the sea and in some stretches the tide dries providing another wonder to the eyes of travelers.

The Circuito Caburé, from Lençóis Maranhenses, is done by speedboat on the Preguiça River and lasts almost a whole day. The first stop is in Vassouras with the dunes and lagoons of the Little Lençois. Detail for the clever little monkeys that appear in the tents of the place to interact (and if you are not careful take something) with tourists.

Then the destination is the village of Mandacaru which has as its main attraction a 35-meter-high lighthouse and offers a beautiful panoramic view. The third and last stop is in the early afternoon at Caburé Beach, where the strip of sand divides the river from the sea.

Atins and Caburé, obligatory stops on boat trips along the Preguiças River, to the east of the park, and Santo Amaro do Maranhão, to the west. The latter is one of the least explored places, with even more impressive dunes and crystal clear lagoons that are not yet visited by large groups of tourists.
