Take time to put your bags down and rest! Don’t rush your stay here, distances and travel times are long in Brazil.



From São Luis airport (SLZ) you will need about 3–3.5 hours to reach the little harbor of Barreirinhas and another 1h15m by boat down the river to Atins.

We can recommend good private drivers from São Luis and boat drivers from Barreirinhas.

We recommend to stay a minimum of 3 to 4 days in Atins.

You should prepare money in advance as you will have to pay almost all expenses in cash. There are no cash machines in Atins!
