An edit of my trip to the PARQUE NACIONAL DOS LENCOIS MARANHENSES with my sister Rebecca. Shot it with my SONY HD camcorder. We spent three days in Northeastern Brazil in March, 2011. One of our tour guides told us we were the first Americans to visit the park in his ten years of giving tours. It's absolutely critical that we visit these places as responsible eco-tourists or they will be exploited for other commercial gains in the future. This vast area is in Northeastern Brazil where the winds create sand dunes and lagoons that fill with rainwater during the rainy season. The park is only accessible by specially certified tour guides who operate specially outfitted four wheel drive vehicles capable of navigating the shifting sands and rutted roads. The lagoons are perfect swimming holes. Because of the strong winds coming from the Atlantic Ocean, there are surprisingly no mosquitos.
