- pick up at the hotel in Natal

Notice that some operators in Natal do not include in this tour the visit to the mobile dunes of Jenipabu; if you want to take the famous "with or without emotion" tour, visit the Jenipabu tours section.

Near Maracaja˙

Maracaja˙, the last stop of the tour, is about 65 km north of Natal; notice, however, that the several detours taken to visit attractions (for example, aerobunda in JacumŃ) and to access better points of viewing easily stretch the total distance to more than 100 km. Duration of tour depends on how much time is spent on each place. A typical tour takes from 9am to 3pm.

It┤s possible to extend the trip as far as Touros, further to the north. It┤s also possible to continue the trip all the way until Fortaleza, in Cearß; this service, however, is offered by fewer operators, and usually involves driving a Land Rover or similar vehicle.
It is also possible to combine this trip with a dive at the Parrachos de Maracaja˙; however, diving is only possible during the low tides, so a careful timing is required.
