  • I loved this activity, is a little expensive for lunch, and they charge you the show unannounced (a guy with a guitar) but the tour itself is worth, it is wonderful

  • The Waterpark has acceptable facilities: clean toilets, slides of different height and pools, restaurant with conventional menu and standard prices. The beach is beautiful, very wild and invites to hiking Moving to the platform, which is in the midst of the reefs can make catamaran or speedboat. The platform has bar, lockers and snorkel rental and you can buy a cd with photos and underwater filming. Diving is also possible. The only downside is that many people are concentrated and will hinder movements at sea.

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.
