Natal & Around, Brazil

The region between Olinda and the city of Natal is enchanting and well worth exploring by road.

Travelling in this manner allows you to explore the Atlantic rainforest and the inland area of Cariri, where you can stay on a ranch amongst lakes and granite hills. You then continue along the fine coast, where dolphins frolic in the many sandy coves en route.

Praia da Pipa

There are sophisticated resorts and simple pousadas scattered between the coastal fishing villages, and we particularly like the lovely Toca da Coruja and the Ponta do Madeiro in the Praia da Pipa.


Alternatively you can fly to Natal, which is a good base from which to explore the main attraction of this area - the beaches and sand dunes which are a massive adventure playground for fun-loving individuals.

For accommodation in Natal we like the Manary Praia Hotel.
