Facundo E. Menossi
Facundo arrived in the Lençóis Maranhenses on a trip with friends in 2013 and never left. He was enchanted by the infinitely pure nature of this place, healthy lifestyle, and open-minded friendships, and decided to stay for a while. After almost a year of contemplation and exploration, his walk in the Atins region, motivated also by the work of some friends, led him to start guiding small groups on walks. He created the name "Sempre Atins" on social media to promote his work. Already decided to settle in Atins, he acquired the first horses and rented others for riding. It was a difficult path, but perseverance, passion for animals and nature helped to make the project a reality. Year after year, exhaustively exploring the dunes and lagoons of the desert, understanding the changes in geography and the exuberant and distinctive natural forms of the Lençóis Maranhenses, he draws the best routes to visit this special place at any time of the year.
