There are more "classier" Mexican restaurants in Natal, however, Novo Mexico is by far the best one. This is the real deal if you want Tex-Mex food in Natal. Niels hails from New Mexico, USA and he knows his Tex-Mex with all levels of spicy available. Very enjoyable, good food and friendly host. Very Recommended.

This is the best steakhouse in Natal, period. There is another one in town that is also very popular but for me this is the one. It is located right on the Morcegos beach cliff with great views of the ocean, amazing range of food, big portions (go to this place when hungry!), great service and just a nice atmosphere. Recommend.

This restaurant lies inside the beachfront boutique hotel Manary in Ponta Negra. They arguably make the best seafood and lobster dishes in Natal (although you should try lobster dishes at Casa Monte Belo :D ). Can´t go wrong at the Manary.

Naf Naf is right next door Casa Monte Belo and it is the best beachfront restaurant in the area for lunch. A very varied amount of different dishes from meat, chicken, fish, shrimp and seafood. They use a buffet system for a fixed price but it´s worth it. The owner Tanize is super friendly and the decor is tastefully done with typical local influences.

This is pretty much THE "gringo" bar in Ponta Negra and always a fun place to have a few drinks early in the night (or you can stick around until 2-3 am). The owner Russell is a great guy and really enjoys life, which shows.. :D They sometimes have live music also despite being a smaller place.

This is the best club if you want to go dancing to local tunes like Forro and Pagode. Very, very popular with the locals of Natal and usually packed during weekends. If you want a glimpse of what popular local nightlife is in Natal then Rastapé is a must visit.

Fort built by the Portuguese colonists and later renovated and improved by the Dutch settlement. This is, perhaps, the most iconic building of Natal and is a nice visit. The local government needs to take care of it better but it still nice for a quick tour and history of the place.

Snorkeling at the reefs of Maracajau is a family-friendly​ activity where you can snorkel and see fishes and lobsters living at the reefs, slightly off the shoreline. If weather permits it, this is a nice day out with the family. There is also a waterpark if that is more your thing.
