It's Not A Mirage: National Park In Brazil Is A Desert Filled With Water
It's like something out of a daydream.
No, seriously. When was the last time you saw a desert-like oasis accompanied by crystal-clear, incredibly blue bodies of water? If you ever happen to be in Brazil and you're looking to experience something you've never experienced before, visit the Lençóis Maranhenses National Park!
The white sand dunes scattering the terrain will amaze you; it looks way too much like the desert. And if you know anything about the desert, you know these dry barrens of land never feature water -- let alone crystal-clear lagoons!
The coolest part about this entire thing? According to Huffington Post, these refreshing lagoons are swimmable during certain times of the year when the 10-foot waters reach close to 87 degrees Fahrenheit. That's pretty impressive for a national park!
There's nothing like close to 380,000 acres of open dreamland space. However, the park recommends visitors stick with a buddy and a tour guide.
Despite the fact that there are lagoons scattered throughout Brazil's Lençóis Maranhenses National Park, you can still feel like you're stranded in the desert if you get lost!
