    • Buggy Tour

      by LeonardHissett Online Now Jul 18, 2016 at 5:59 PM

      My partner and I would like to take a 2 day buggy tour from Natal to Maracajau (to snorkle) on February 3, 2017, returning to Natal by way of a tour to Genipabu on the second day. We are Canadian and speak English, if possible it would be good to have an english speaking buggy driver/tour guide. Or, I would be interested in renting a buggy and driving myself.Either way, Is this a possibility and how much money would this sort of tour/rental cost? Would it be possible to get a list of companies/people to get in touch with regarding a tour like this? Thank you, Leonard

    • Travel to Fortaleza from Natal

      by Ricardo37 Online Now Jun 8, 2014 at 10:31 AM


      Me and 2 friends want to go to
      Fortaleza to the FIFA Fan Fest from Natal.

      Would you recommend going because of the safety situation??

      If so, which would be the safest and cheapest??
      It would be just for 1 day to watch the Opening game of Croatia v Brazil.

      Then come back to Natal.

    • Place to stay / things to do

      by kovatchev Online Now Jul 12, 2007 at 6:02 PM


      I'm planning to go to Natal with my fiancee, and am looking for an economical but nice accommodation? Does anyone have any recommendations. I'm hoping to pay in the 35 to 60 USD range, but prefer small and quaint over any massive hotel chain. Proximity to beaches is also important to us.

      I know this is an open ended question, but what highlights do Natal and the surrounding area have to offer. My fiancee and I are planning our trip and our current itinerary seems to have us sticking close to the coast and beaches. I'm somewhat concerned that as great as beach life is, it might start to all blend together by the end. Is there anything that you could recommend around Natal that could take us away from the beach?

Gostaria que alguém local me informasse se estas são apenas chuvas passageiras em dias de sol ou se, pelo contrário, tem estado sempre a chover e o sol só espreita de vez em quando. E como será que vai estar o tempo na semama que vem? Alguém faz ideia?
