In case of any doubt get in
Inns: comfort and tranquility for you
A nice suggestion for those who look for tranquility is to host in any of our inns
They offer to the visitor a closing and comfortable environment, where the guest enjoys a whole structure entirely dedicated to his satisfaction.
Most of the inns are located next to beaches, making it easier for the tourist to enjoy the pleasures of the littoral of Rio Grande do Norte.
The night was made to sleep
Besides resting your mind and body for another driving day, a break on the trip to sleep keeps you away from the night dangers of the road.
At night there are more probabilities of car accidents once there is less illumination, what turns the visibility difficult for the drivers. Besides that, lots of them, tired of a long day on the road, can easily fall asleep while driving, causing a big tragedy, ruining everybody's vacations.
Take care on activities like rafting, rappel and climbs, because those require good reflexes and physical conditioning. Try to practice those sports in group, with known companies that guarantee you security equipments and qualified professionals.
Cares before bathing in the sea
In case you don't know the beach, do not swim beyond the level of the water goes upper than your chest high, so you won't get caught by the flow.
In days of strong waves avoid going into the sea and search for better sheltered and known beaches.
If there is a life-guard on the beach, ask him orientation about sea condition and the better points for bathing.
In case you're with children, you must pay extra attention; avoid leaving them close to places with rocks and hard to access.
Walking on the beach
To walk on the beach is a very pleasant exercise, but take care with hot sand and also with the diseases caused by larva or fungus that can be found on the sand. Always try to use a light and comfortable sandal on your walks.
During the breakfast eat plenty of cereals and laxative fruits, such as papaya, orange and pineapple.
If you're going to eat any sandwich, choose the naturals, which are lighter and healthier.
Take care with the regional food! Your body may not be adapted to this kind of food which has strong apices and ingredients, and you might have problems on your trip. Is better to go to restaurants with known reputation (in Natal, we recommend Mangai
), indicated by your hotel workers or your tourism agency.
It is good to visit your doctor before traveling; he might indicate the best food for your organism.
Drink lots of water! The powerful sun is the State's trade mark, because of that you must worry about the quantity of liquids you drink. In the case of the elderly, double care is required, because older people tend to loose thirsty and dehydrate easier, so don't overlook.
The ideal is to drink 6 to 8 glasses of water (or juice, or coconut water) per day. Take good care with the water quality. Drink only bottled water and even for the juices, demand it's made with mineral water and don't exaggerate on the ice.
Protect yourself of the sun
The sun in Natal, especially on the summer, is very strong. We recommend the use, mainly in external activities (buggy drivers and walks), of appropriate sunscreens, even in cloudy days.
- Spread the sunscreen at least half an hour before exposition to the sun rays and again each 2 hours.
- Don't forget to apply the sunscreen also in the hands, ears, eye lids and feet, which receive the same quantity of sun.
- Use lips protector too and hair filters to reduce water damages.
Always that possible, stay in the shadow, try to avoid exposition to the higher sun.
The ideal permanence period in Natal is at least 4 days, because a simple travel itinerary would include a visit to the North and South beaches (1 day each), and the rest of the days to know the city attractions and shop in the handicraft centers.
Appropriate clothing and footwear
With the heat, mostly in the summer, it is indicated to wear light clothes (t-shirts, shorts and short pants), slippers and comfortable sandals, and that can be soaked.
Binoculars, cameras, and video cameras, are always welcome. Caps or hats, visors and sunglasses are also good because of the sunm mainly on buggy or boat strolls where the sun exposition is bigger.
