Perfect for some adventure and beautiful photos.

Great adventure. Great photos. If ridding with kids, best to keep them on the back seat. Don't forget your shades and a good tight hat.

Our buggy drivers dropped as at the base of the dune so it was, literally, breathtaking! :D Genipabu was beautiful and offered a wonderdul view of the ocean and the city. And while the climb up was a challenge, there's cold coconut water ready to quench your thirst at the top.

A very nice experience. Beautiful place, breath taking. Worth the trip. There are lots of sand dunes in Rio Grande do Norte and Genipabu is one of the sport's best-known descents. Great fun.

Can't miss attraction in Natal, fantastic dunes offering amazing views of the city and the oasis surrounding the city. Amazing scenery, perfect for lots of pictures.

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.
