A holiday experience in Natal that cannot be missed... Have a buggy ride after some hustling with the driver... They have to stay within legal limits so no rip off unless you go for initial price.

The views towards the sea and the city is great, unfortunately the rental of buggys and the noise coming with them do not allow to stay there forever

Before going to Disney there are the Dunas!! Its ana amazing ride. A car takes you around like a roller coaster ride. It's thrilling and exciting!!

Fantastic!!! Must see! One can choose a trip with or without "adventure". Beautiful place. Nothing is for free. You pay for the buggy with authorized driver and pay for the entrance at park. This is national park.

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
