With large expanses of sweeping sand dunes, Lencois Maranhenses might appear to be your average desert. But for six months of the year, crystal blue lagoons turn the arid region into a cool summer hot spot. Located in the Brazilian state of Maranhao, the national park is inundated with rainstorms from January to June of every year. The rainwater that collects between the sand dunes paints a stunning landscape covered in thousands of crystal clear lagoons. This Great Big Story was made in partnership with Toyota RAV4. Lagunas entre dunas: un paisaje alucinante en Brasil Con sus grandes extensiones de dunas, Lencois Maranhenses podria aparentar ser un desierto promedio. Pero durante seis meses del ano las lagunas de agua cristalina transforman la region arida en un lugar fresco para veranear. Situado en el estado brasileno de Maranhao, cada ano entre enero y junio el parque nacional se inunda por tormentas. El agua que se acumula entre las dunas dibuja un impresionante paisaje cubierto por miles de lagunas cristalinas. Esta Great Big Historia fue realizada con la colaboracion de Toyota RAV4.
