Brazil as a whole, including Natal, has many self-service restaurants, where food costs per kilo, depending on how much each person eats.

Natal is one of the main tourist destinations in Northeastern Brazil and widely sought by Portuguese, Spanish, Italians, Germans and Norwegians. However, except Ponta Negra, most of the attractions that made Natal famous in Brazil and abroad are from outside the city limits. This is the case of Genipabu, São Miguel do Gostoso, the Rio do Fogo and Maracajaú reefs, the Galinhos estuarine point, the Baía Formosa surf spot, the freshwater lagoons of Buzios and the beaches and dolphins of the cosmopolitan Pipa.
Natal is also strategic if you want to visit the Brazilian ocean diving paradise. Fernando de Noronha Archipelago. There are daily flights to the island from Natal airport. Given that it is an isolated oceanic archipelago, housing prices, food and gifts on the island are high, but it is definitely worth it for those who have traveled long distances to reach Northeast Brazil.
