  • Description


    My name is Gabi and i moved to Atins 6 years ago, i live here with my 2 babies, Giovane 2 years and a half and Joao Gabriel, 10 months. i have worked in many pousadas here.. But now i have a family ❤ and I really need to grow professionally!! Suddenly i had the opportunity to have my own hostel and I'm very happy!
    Now i have a lot of work to do and with those 2 i don't have much time left..
    Is the begging of a business on a remote village, hard work for me and my little family! I definitely could use some voluntary help out here.

    My hostel is a cozy place for tourists, with a beautiful private beach on the backyard! We are located 1 hour (walking), 25 minutes (4x4) from the National Park of the lencois maranhenses, the most incredible place i have ever seen! White dunes and natural pools... Something unique!!

    Atins is a small fisherman village with very nice local people, sand streets and great food. Very relaxing to be here! Many places to check out, the beach, the river (rio preguica), the dunes and a lovely igarape (small river that crosses the village.

    I could be hours writing about this amazing place that you can for sure connect yourself with the most pure and charming nature, but now you have the opportunity to be here!!
