Lençóis Maranhenses National Park
The Lençóis Maranhenses National Park (Parque Nacional dos Lençóis Maranhenses) is located in northeastern Brazil. Although made up of large sweeping sand dunes, it is not a desert. Due to lying just outside the Amazon Basin, the region is subject to a regular rain season during the beginning of the year. When fresh water collects in the valleys between sand dunes, the desert is spotted with blue and green lagoons.
The area is also surprisingly home to a variety of fish which, despite the almost complete disappearance of the lagoons during the dry season, have their eggs brought from the sea by birds.
