Full description
Get picked up in the morning from your hotel in Natal, then set off on a 1-hour drive in an air-conditioned vehicle to the Parrachos de Maracajaú. Maracajaú Beach is known as the “Caribbean” of the Rio Grande do Norte state.  Choose between a catamaran or speedboat transfer out to sea. When you arrive at Maracajaú Beach, board your boat of choice and set off into the crystal-clear waters. Get kitted out with a snorkel mask and all necessary equipment and dive into the sea. Explore the region's famous Parrachos, which is a coral formation, and is part of the Environmental Protection Area. At low tide, you can dive into warm waters among many species of colorful fish. At the end of your snorkeling experience, return to shore and soak up the incredible views. Admire the beautiful scenery the area is known for including dunes, lagoons and a panoramic view from the beach to the Tereza Panza Lighthouse. If you choose the catamaran option, enjoy access to a beach restaurant serving typical food in simplicity and comfort. For the speedboat option, receive access to Manoa Water Park which includes a restaurant, seaside tables, swimming pool, and wet bar.
