I enjoyed the buggy ride, but also I think it is the best way to visit the surroundings of Porto de Galinhas, as public transportation may be difficult. Additionally, a buggy ride is quite fun.

It costs 20 reals. It's a tour on the beach. I don't see what's the point but you can try it once for the sake of it.

If you´re looking for the same experience than in Natal, forget about it. The buggy ride is ok as you´re travelling by the coast from beach to beach

We took a very kind driver and it was great! He showed us many beaches, took us to Porto de Galinhas and the Natural Pools and to a lagoon to see the seahorses! Our kids just loved the trip!

I rented the vehicle amd had it during all my stay in the island, I believe it´s a little expensive but worth because you can do whatever you want, whenever you want as there are not much options. Bike is an option, but you know, you are on vacation and the island has a lot of ups and downs :)

My buggy kept breaking down, and the driver got lost when separated from the rest of the buggies. The route takes you mainly over roads and well worn paths. It made for funny stories, at least. The one bright spot was getting to see some additional reefs around the area. I imagine it would be better to take a buggy... More

Nothing when compared to buggy rides in Natal, Pipa, or at Jericoacoara. They just drive you up and down from Maracaipe to Muro Alto, mainly on the paved streets and costing 120 R$ - better take a cab to where you want to go.
