Exciting. You have to experience the adventure of crossing the Dunes in a Buggy. You feel part of the nature and sometimes like in a middle of a desert. Simply exciting

We went through Vicky at Fly Brazil....Phone +55 84 8161 7188 (e-mail hostess@outlook.com) and we had an incredible day. They were actually early to our house, they pick you up and take you out to the dunes. Simply riding around in the buggies through the streets was even fun, and the buggies made it that much better. They let you... More

When we were in Natal we were booked to do the buggy tour but it rained the whole day and so we were unable to go. A few people from our hotel said how much fun it was so I am reiterating that here. I just wanted to make note that we booked our tour via Marazul before we went... More

The dunes are beautiful and worth a buggy ride. I wish we'd gotten to spend more time zooming up/down the dunes and less time stopping for photo-ops (where locals would try to talk us into donkey rides or camel rides or silly photos for a "tip"). We also spent too much time on a flat beach rather than the dunes.... More

We wanted to see about a dune buggy ride down at Genipabu. We had our own car so commuted out there on our way north out of Natal. Genipabu is out in the sticks down some really rural roads. As you get to the small town boogie vendors will leap in front of your car to try and entice you... More

Genipabu beach is not exceptionally beautiful, but even before you arrive the beach, you will be wowed by the bridge, the dunes in the distance, and the tranquil paths leading up to it. The dune buggying. I dont recommend you take the dromadaire, nor any camel ride, because their lopey gate is hardly exciting and can leave you with serious... More

Took a dune buggie ride. It is impossible to not have fun. Our driver was easy to communicate with and really had a good time with us! The views of the city and the ocean were beautiful. Highly recommended!

That's the best part of Natal. Amazing landscape. Make sure you find a good company to hire the buggy ride. Most of the times, the hotel indicates a good one. Buggy ride is really exciting and goes to different points in dunes. I really recommend this.

This was so much fun it was hard to stop smiling. Make sure to stop and take it all in. Bring cash for all the extra activities along the way. Yes I slid down a dune into a river - twice! Buggy rides for all!!!
