By far the best way to see all of the dunas is from a buggy. I recommend to sign for a buggy tour and go on a fast, adrenaline rich, blood curling ride of a lifetime. My tour started with an early pick up, then a drive through the city, then to the dunas, we went through multiple ups and... More

I went twice, in different trips. I went first with friends, then with my family. I didn't like none of the rides to the Dunas. But you do that to friends and family. Why I didn't like it? First, you can rent a car that takes you around to the ups and downs of the Dunas, running like a crazy.... More

Great to go with family and spend a few hours. There is a walking guided tour around the dunnes, but it requires physical preparation and a few hours walking.

It's a must do sightseeing while you visit Natal. Ride the buggy, take many pictures, and if you like, buy some souvenirs during the ride.

Getting away from the main trail will give you a special view of the raw nature Brazil is so famous for mixed with a traditional view of the Nordeste.

I think this is one of the most interesting tours, considered a Natal trademark. The "dunas" are very different than any place I've every seen before. You can enjoy beautiful landscapes and also have fun riding the buggy. It can be a thrill ride if you ask the driver so. You can also try "skibunda" and "aerobunda", which are fun... More
