The Pirangi Cashew Tree is amazing and unbelievable for its huge size!! It's a typical tourism place to go and see with your own eyes. There is no photo that could represent its size!

This was worth the stop. Beautiful view from the top!! Can not believe it is all one tree. The beaches are just beautiful there as well.

A true natural wonder - why shouldn't we be amazed about this more than we are? Is it the tourist shopping surrounding the entry, the fee that makes one wonder about the value or the overlook structure that still doesn't do it justice? Whatever the case, it is hard to fathom the size of this tree species and it is... More

One of those attractions in Brazil that don't really gives you a kick ! Been the same all these years Badly managed, boring, a quick 15 mins to go round under this Guiness World Record Tree and see branches and roots every where. The observation tower was better but don't expect to get a postcard view because it sucks! No... More

Very interesting because it is unique: nowhere else you will see a tree like that. You can enjoy a delicius juice and shop for local crafts.

This cashew tree is amazing.We got a private taxi tour to take us to see the cashew tree, the largest in the world, the size of a football pitch. There are tourist shops around as well as restaurants and cafes. Well worth a little trip,but not much else to see.

Incredible how big is the caju tree. Very good touristic information with WiFi available. A handcraft Market complete the visitors wishes.

An interesting tree to admire. The place is well kept and is really nice to walk around the tree. You can also climb some steps and have a good look from the top. Not an expensive morning out. At the exit of the place you can try cashew juice. Not nice!

This was a very worthwhile side trip and worth the minor fee to get in. You must go up the tower to see the full size of this tree. It's amazing, would have enjoyed seeing it during harvest time. The guides provided useful information and enjoyed a taste of the juice.

It's an easy well-marked 20-minute drive from Natal to O Meior Cajueiro do Mundo, the world's largest cashew tree. It is enormous. Do not expect the trunk to be thick like a California sequoia, or tall like redwood. What makes it "world's largest" is that it is a single tree that is the size of a forest. The impressive tree...
