Natal, in the Rio Grande do Norte of Brazil is located on the Northeastern Atlantic coast, just below the Caribbean, and known for its beautiful weather, clean air and expansive beaches...

With more than 44 beaches, lagoons, reefs, and natural beauty, 300 plus days of sun a year with slight ocean breezes, miles of white sand, huge dunes, and semi-equatorial weather, it's simply paradise!

I originally visited Natal in June 2003 and have returned multiple times since. It's one of my favorite destinations and an incredible place to explore or just wile away your time on the festive beaches, bars and restaurants that the city has to offer. I have stayed in 5 star hotels and a local pousadas there, visited many different bars, nightclubs, restaurants and shops, and explored the entire area within about 40 miles north, south, and west of the city.

If you visit Natal, you should understand and at least be able to speak some Portuguese as very few if any people speak English.

I've tried to relate as much helpful info. as I can here for my fellow tourists and travelers and I hope you find it useful in planning your trip to Natal.

I know I'll be returning again and again! Enjoy!
