Had a great time with the family when on the dunes. The buggy will go very fast and I'm not sure what the safety standards are but we walked away in tact. I guess it was all good. Don't be afraid to negotiate price

I went on a buggy ride with Nego the buggy driver trough agency Marazul and it was one of the best experiences in my life. Nego is a funny guy and makes it enjoyable to have a ride with him, he owns a care repair shop and is a very good drive. We did some crazy things on that dunes.... More

Nothing comparable to this place in the world. Just fantastic how nature is! To go through it in a "buggy" is amazing! Choose a nice driver as we had "TATÁ" I just love to go to the Dunas of Genipabu. You can't miss this incredible place.

We went with a buggy tour, we were two people but we find another couple so we could share the expenses of the buggy, the buggy has a fixed price, is good if you are 4 people!!! You spend all day riding the buggy with some nice stops!

You have to do the Camel ride, it's incredible!! (unless you already ride a camel, obviously!!) you can also do the buggy ride in the same place to go to the Camels site.

Its a wonderful ride to enjoy Genipabu drive. Amazing view from Natal and the dunes allows very nice and exciting ride. Choose afternoon to also enjoy the sunset from the dunes point of view which is a spetacular moment.

Great landscape to visit in Natal. It is an all day long trip. Hire a buggy for the day, the buggy trip is wonderful and highly recommend. A Must Do! Every moment was nice and we had the opportunity to visit a lot of fun places. There are good restaurants around there and hotels as well. I recommend to visit... More

When you go to Genipabu beach, you should to hire a ride by buggy. But, don't forget to take a dip in the warm waters of genipabu and climb the dunes.
