City of Natal

Natal, the Potiguar capital, has already conquered the world. It is the America's entrance spot, the closest one to Europe and Africa, a modern and joyful city, born between its rivers and the sea, adorned by dunes and lots of green trees. A land of colors and flavors where one can find pleasure and adventure. It is summer here all year long, on a littoral of wonderful beaches, lagoons, semi-arid backland, cuisine, rides, art and culture that was never seen before, all allied to its people's natural hospitality.

Natal is one of the world's most wanted tourist destinies, the "Sun City", also remembered as the "World's Buggy's Capital" and "Shrimp Land", land where Forró was born. It has around 800 thousand inhabitants and receives more than 2 million tourists per year among Brazilians and foreigners. The visitors are delighted by the more than 400km of Atlantic Coast, surrounded by beautiful beaches, many of which are visited through radical Buggy rides around the Sea, Dunes and Lagoons, with various attractions along with them. Also, there are many good places for Diving, and the constant winds make Windsurf and Kitesurf available.

Besides its natural attractions, the city has a high-leveled hotel chain with more than 25 thousand beds.

In March 2005, Natal was considered to be Brazil's calmest capital, according to a survey done by IPEA - Instituto de Pesquisas Econômicas Aplicadas. It also received the title on having America's purest air (NASA-USA) in 1994.
