My husband and I did a buggy trip while in Natal. I have been to many carribbean islands and have done your typical boat trip, snorkel trip, jet ski ect. But this trip was something different. Completely unique. The buggy picks you up at the hotel. It's nice because they fit 4 guests only. You can rent a buggy just... More

This open air ride is a must in you visit to Natal. Choose between all day excursions, or an afternoon ride of 2-3 hours. The views on the way from the hotel zone to the dunes are spectacular. There are several options, all which can be explained by tour operator sales people back at the Ponta Negra Beach walkway.

great ride and site seeing. good idea to find a buggy with seat belts in the back. That way you can ask the driver to tear it up without getting tossed out.

One of the highlights of my Brazilian adventure. Do not miss out on this fantastic adventure. It takes a day, so its best to start early and plan accordingly. There are a few different stops on the adventure that include ziplining and water slide ("kamakzie") along with several photo ops. There is also a place to swim and have lunch.... More

after 20 years the place has changed because the tourism, the sand is going down and the hills are getting lower, thats the reazon the tours should be less than a hour. But the view is amazing, the guides are nice and helpful.

Try the beach buggy tour. Usually takes all day and includes river crossings on rafts, zip line rides, swimming in fresh water lakes and lunch break.

This was the first time I had been to Brazil. This trip was amazing the views that you can get while on the dunes are hard to explain. Take a buggy trip as it gives you a chance to explore the dunes. It can get very hot there.

Awesome trip. The dunes are incredible to see and experience. I took a full day dune buggy tour. I was worried about spending so much time in the sun but you have many stops with shade to put on more sunscreen. You go from dune to lagoon and other sights for a few hours then go to a lagoon to...

The park is a good place to go. Locals usually go to exercise in contact with nature and lots of children have fun while playing on the playground, skating or riding bikes. There you can go tracking and see animals, plants and beautiful dunes. The park also offers health care assistance. It's a good place to relax or to do... More
