Good place to visit, but there is no enough infrastructure for visitors. Most of vehicles used for tourists transportation are completely unsafe. The beaches are beautiful.

Must do! Hire a buggy for the day, make sure you bring your bathing suit and enjoy! Ask the driver for 'Emocao' If your stomach can handle it, dive face down on a boogie board down the dune into the lake.

We went on a buggy ride to Genipabu which left from our hotel and drove through a few beaches, crossed the river on a old-fashioned "ferry", stopped at a beautiful lake before reaching the dunes. The landscape was breathtaking and it was a lot of fun to drive up and down the dunes. On the way back we also stopped... More

Incredible Sand Dunes are great for dune buggies !! Dunes overlook the ocean and you can see much for a long distance.

Natal's Amusement Park! So much to see and do!!! Try to arrange this outing at your hotel as all the drivers must be registered and they should provide a good service. Our driver was Guilherme Guerreiro, awesome guy and very well-known by everybody around! We told him he should become a politician as he knows so many people around and... More

The Rio Grande do Norte’s capital is a bright, high skylined but rather bland city that has swelled in popularity for native Brazilians as a place to holiday. Think Ft. Lauderdale or perhaps Daytona Beach when you were young – when Mom and Dad would throw you in the car and say “we’re going to Florida!” When it wasn’t Disney,... More

It was raining in Natal at 9am by the time we were picked up at our hotel but when we got closer Genipabu the sky cleared up and it was amazing. You cannot leave Natal without visiting the dunes. Great experience for kids of all ages (3-100)
