  • We took a boat trip on the river Preguiças, which left us in Atins, our second destination to meet the sheets. The boats for this tour, usually leaving the River. But our hostel was a particular corner of the river and so boarded right there. We boarded our backpacks, navigating the river Preguiças observing local flora Aguilar's boat. The first stop was on broomsticks, where the small bed, very nice, but very little compared with the extent of the Beautiful Blue Lagoon, which make up the Large sheets. There's also local crafts for sale and a large family of Monkeys that coexist well with nails, humans and are crazy about food. The second stop was in Mandacarú. A village where the Charter sloths, the major attraction of the parade. Just outside of where the boat docks have a personal selling fried fish and spiced rum. There are also house selling ice cream with local fruits, as buriti and mandacarú, bakuri. Visit the lighthouse begins with the rise of more than 100 steps and upstairs you can see the whole village. It's really nice. The third stop is Buff. There we find the first beach of the tour. As was very windy, the beach was really weird and with waves, so I was afraid to get in the water. This is the biggest parade, the parade with restaurant. We ate at the restaurant Zezão, a portion of fried shrimp with mush. We also ATV on the beach. My boyfriend was driven mad with the amount of quadricycles in Barreirinhas and wanted to walk. We pay 40 reais for half an hour. We left there and we stopped in the port of Atins, where two boys, probably younger than, were waiting for us in your quads, a species of quadritaxi. We pay 70 reais per person in this tour of the Preguiças River.

  • The river Preguiças lard practically the whole town of Barreirinhas. There are houses that have the River as backyard. Depending on the location the river can have 1 to 10 metres or more deep, and in some places it is freshwater, brackish or salt water.

  • The boat ride to the sea is interesting. It passes through the mangrove vegetation. The river is in full flood and the look is nice, but it's a reasonable course for anyone who has children. The beach is the high point (despite the abusive prices of restaurants at the mouth of the river and the poor food).
