Caburé is not even a village in Maranhão. Beautifully situated between the river and the sea, sometimes covered in a fine layer of sand carried in by certain winds. Its proximity to Lençóis Maranhenses could make it a base camp, but there is the river in between. Go for Atins instead.
No scheduled transport.
- The Barreirinhas - Atins boat calls occasionally (and certainly if you request so upon boarding).
- Hoards of daytrippers come in between 10AM and 1PM, -approach their drivers to learn where they are going, seats available and so on. There is always a motor launch idle, but this will prove more expensive unless you are a big grupo, or its heading your way for some different reason.
- Ask at the pousadas if they have a truck for Paulino Neves along the beach. If one is already booked, you can usually hop on paying the corresponding fraction of the full price, which is about R$150.
So small, so small
Each pousada has its restaurant, -all quite expensive (around R$30 a dish). If you approach before or after the daytrippers, you could be able to negotiate a cheaper set lunch.
Four pusadas in a row. Singles ranging from R$40 to 100. Negotiable in low season.
