How to Reach Natal


  • If you’re flying to Natal, you might have to land at a major Brazilian city first (Rio de Janeiro) and then take a domestic flight to Natal. The airport is situated around 15 to 20 kilometers from the city, so arrange your transport to the hotel before hand; public transport can turn out to be expensive.
  • If you’re traveling on a budget, you could always opt for a bus. Long distance buses are available but could take up to and entire day of travel, depending on where you’re boarding the bus.


  • There are buses and trams that run to designated areas of the city, so before you step out for the day, map out the stops and the bus numbers/lines you have to board to avoid any confusion or getting lost.
  • You could always hire a taxi, but if you’re on a budget, taxis can turn out to be an expensive affair.
