  • Did the Buggy Ride with Helga Marius (84) 99961-1094 and super indico. He picked us up at the hotel in praia dos artistas beach at 8:30 and just back at 4:30 pm. A buggy drivers excited and very good people. We did the tour with excitement!

  • The walk to the dunes is more than required. Very nice ride through spectacular scenery that involve lots of sand, sky and sea. The tour can be done with or "emotionless" in dune buggies. The most important thing is to hire an experienced and responsible bugreiro. Nominate Mr. MOACIR DAN 84999943831. No doubt a person super attentive, polite with 23 years of experience, helpful with pictures and other, and that there is no shortage of praise. Super indico!

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.
