Once in the area of Natal, a visit to Genipabu is recommended. Especially join a buggy tour as you will be going on the beaches, most of the times at least. Make sure it is low tide when taking the ride.

Yes, it is a tourist trap, but you just have to do it anyway. Most drivers nowadays are licensed, experienced and friendly but I recommend getting a contact from a trusted source, like a hotel. They always stop at a decent restaurant for a seafood...More

Becareful when selecting you driver, don't go by cheapest price, you may ending up missing the real Flavor, I recommend Jarci Neto, look for him in Facebook. Very professional and can organize a great group if needed

Amazing attraction, full of beautiful landscapes. The whole attraction takes about 7 hours, leaving from and returning to Ponta Negra. You will have the opportunity to stop in some beaches, lagoons, dunas and other touristic places. We have lunch in a small fisher's village -...More

You must visit this place! But the visit is made in a group of 4 people. Try to go with people you already known because some decisions (time to stay in each place, restaurant to have lunch, etc) are taken jointly

This is a must do attraction. There are 2 types of dunes, fixed and mobile. Make sure that your Buggueiro (Buggy driver) takes you to both. It is an incredible experience where you going to have a very beautiful view of the dunes and the...More

We will be arriving at Natal cruise port in early March. We will be in port from 08:00 - 6:00 pm. We are keen on doing a buggy tour but are finding it difficult to find tour operators that will pick up from the cruise port. How long will a buggy tour take? Is there anything else you would recommend seeing in Natal for our day there? Many thanks Sue, New Zealand
