#5 of 11 in Shopping in Natal
Located right on the sands of one of the most popular beaches in town, Centro de Artesanato de Ponta Negra is a sprawling open-air bazaar frequented by both locals and visitors. Set aside a few hours to visit this bustling gathering place where quality, original arts and crafts are sold at low prices. You can choose from handmade rugs, vases, and paintings. Then take a short walk to Morro do Careca, the tallest sand dune in the area and one of the city's most famous landmarks. Finish your day with a meal at one of this neighborhood's trendy restaurants. Or grab a quick snack right at the market; many stalls sell local delicacies and refreshing beverages. As you rest, search the water for "jangadas," multicolored fishing boats unique to this part of the country.

    I went to the craft Center Saturday night and found that in addition to varied souvenirs has a good place to eat. Accompanied by forró pé de serra, with a space to dance. Worth checking out.

Where to stay in Natal

Looking to enjoy the best beaches and soak up the holiday atmosphere, most visitors eschew the city center when it comes to accommodations in Natal. Instead, many look to the southern beachside neighborhood of Ponta Negra, which brims with tourist resorts and the accompanying bars, restaurants, and cafes. If you want to escape the tourist route and experience the city itself, you'll find plenty of options along the beachside boulevard of Av. Presidente Cafe Filho--a stone's throw from the beach and the city center. For something much quieter, surrounded by rolling dunes and clear waters, stay on the seafront next to Parque das Dunas.
