The Northeast Sights




Maracajaú Review

The principal draw at Maracajaú is the large coral reef 6 km (4 miles) off the coast. Teeming with marine life, the sizable reef offers the best snorkeling in the Natal area, and the natural pools are some of Brazil's most beautiful. Visitors can catch a van from Natal, followed by a small boat or catamaran across to the reefs. A round-trip with Natal Vans costs R$110 per person.

Ma-noa Parque Aquático. This water park has all that day-trippers require: a restaurant, water rides, a huge pool, boat trips to the reef with snorkeling equipment provided, and even transport to and from Natal hotels. 084/3211–2140.
