  • The walk is very nice, I recommend the excursions that you spend to find buggy, for the hotel. There begins the amazing experience, seems to be one in a desert with dunes and next to the sea. The activity lasts all day. Wear plenty of sunscreen. We also got a ride on a camel. Picturesque

  • I've been in Genipabu earlier with a group of friends, the beach has one of the postal cards that had the privilege to see. However we had the displeasure of sitting on Maria's tent. Bad quality food, beans green only with salt, not to mention the absurd price charged. We have no shame to spend on food, since it has quality, and be fulfilled. To have an idea, a lot of 100gramas rice seasoned salt only cost 15.00, R$ a imcompativel price with the quantity and especially the bad quality. I'm sorry because we work with travel groups, this caused a bad impression. I don't recommend.

  • Did the buggy ride to meet the coastline north and South. I loved the Genipapu Beach, whose waters are clear, warm, the place is beautiful. I hired the company Marazul Receptive and recommend.
