Atins is a great starting point to visit the Lençóis Maranhenses and the Rancho do Buna is the perfect spot. It feels like the middle of nowhere, it has basic rooms but the service is amazing. Monica speaks a very good English (uncommon in Northeast Brazil even in tourist areas) and is always ready to help you with reservation or simply to organise your tour to the Lençóis Maranhenses. They have free animals (chickens, turkeys, etc...) wandering around the lovely courtyard (with swimming pool) which gives a very countryside feeling. Dinner is served in the Pousada as well.
Moreover, seeing the Lençóis Maranhenses from Atins will let you explore the lagoons with 5-15 people around you. Something that won't happen in Barreirinhas, being a more touristy place.
Definitely extremely recommended! If you go to the Nordeste and to Lençóis Maranhenses you cannot miss this place.More
