The buggy ride was amazing! I strongly suggest that you do this and the dunes water slides. The kids would love it! Make sure to bring a camera there are lots of opportunities to take pictures. Water shorts are the best option. Chance for swimming at the beach.

Gotta go by buggy. There's no way to go to Natal and not doing this activity. Although it seems a little bit dangeours, it's good to know that the drivers have to do a course of 4 months and to pass the test to get the license.

Fantastic ~6 hour tour for two people. I paid R$400 for one buggy with tour guide\driver and no other guests. I highly recommend it as the best thing we did during our trip in Natal.

Amazing! The sand buggy whizzes you over the dunes at a pace that most countries would deem unsafe! However, we had a wonderful time riding over the dunes! Never seen so much sand outside the Sahara! There were stops for various activies and refreshments, also plenty of photo stops. Altogether a MUST for anyone going to Natal - I highly... More

The buggy ride was good, with some pieces os emotion while clibing the Dunes. The place is very hot with nothing to do, just take pictures and in 10 minutes you are good to go. I was expecting more from it.

If you go to Natal and skip Dunes of Genipabu, your trip won't be complete. Amazing place, really beautiful, buggy ride is really nice through those dunes. Ask the driver to have more fun and he will drive faster. It's safe and much better. That was the best place that I visited in Natal.

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
