A must go place! Go for the lagoa bonita, best option in the park. A incredible view, and amazing natural pools in the middle of nowhere.

Truly I have never seen anything similar- the combination of the finest sand dunes with crystal clear pools of sweet water is unique. The vast scale can only be seen from above because all tourists go to the same 5-6 pools, yet there are hundreds!

I visited in early Jan. There was no water in the dunes but it was still beautiful and very quiet.

Sorry, but I cannot answer that. I was at the dunes in March. I suspect it is different every season but always interesting!
