The trajectory of the Natal Praias

When the Natal Praias arrives, everything was still very new and difficult for me. The quality of the content that I wanted to deliver to the people taking me a long time and the site’s return wasn’t enough to afford.

However, the passion for Natal made me resist and keep working and studying. Dove headlong into the Natal story and I specialized in Digital Marketing so I could fulfill the Mission of the Natal Praias.

In three years of this portal, I’ve learned a lot about the power of communication in people’s lives and how my work can play an important influence in the life of a family that looking for fun, of a couple seeking a honeymoon or even on a foreign national who is seeking the meaning of life.

And if you seek world-class entertainment, Natal is one of the destinations most visited Brazilian by foreigners.

A lot has changed, right?

The portal is already in second version, the latest was developed by professionals of the highest level of web design and branding. I’ve not saved anything for the site could give readers a nice digital environment and that feed even more the desire to meet Natal.

We work as a team to find out the best solutions for navigation was quick, comfortable and straight.

Much of what we did was inspired in design of some of the best Web Designers in the country the Marcio Duarte and his partner Henrique Carvalho. If you need to have a Web site or a personal blog, for your business recommend meeting the Épico. ( Sorry the Èpico, is only in Portuguese)

Learn a little of my story and why I love what I do with this project


Before I tell you the fundamental part of all of this, I wanted to introduce myself better to You

It all started in 1995, while I was a teenager that was leaving from Goiânia to spend the holidays in Natal with my mother.

At the invitation of my uncle, I’m spending 1 month in Natal, among with my two brothers. As I’ve always loved beach, I accepted the invitation right away, however the beaches that I knew were on the coast of Rio Grande do Sul because my dad’s Gaucho, and so a few times a year, the whole family gathered there hanging out to visit the beaches.

When we arrived in Natal, I had the charm that I see in the eyes of the people who visit here.

I knew that I didn’t want to come out of Natal. Until today I had no vacation as exciting as those, say with certainty that those days were the best days of my life until today.

But all that is good short-lived. Will be?

I went back to Goiânia, worked and collected money to back the Natal one more time, until in 1997 I was already packed to follow my will.

My passion was so big that soon I was invited to work in a hotel in Ponta Negra.

My passion for service and art of serving began to grow to the point that they were too big for the space I occupied.

In 2003 I became Business Manager of the hotel and started to travel the entire purpose of Brazil disclose Natal and the Hotel, starting from the Northeast, then Southeast, South and Midwest.

I have pleasure in being a knowing person of Brazil almost whole, since the largest capital until the quietest cities of the interior, so the chances of me ever having visited a native land are enormous.

I attended the biggest tourism events in Brazil and had the pleasure of meeting a lot of nice people over the years and that even today are partners and help me spread to the four corners of the world the wonders of Natal.

In 2014 I decided to finish this cycle and start the journey behind the old dream of endeavor.

Today live integrally the fruits of my work with the Natal Praias.


Ricardo Natal Praias

One of the phrases that inspire me on a daily basis is as follows:

“When we love what we do and we have a strong purpose to make things happen, nothing seems impossible.”  Mandella.

Those events I always showed why Natal was the best place in the Country for a vacation and in my opinion also to live.

This is my humble and simple opinion; I respect yours and anyone who thinks differently.

Reasons to visit Natal

Still in Doubt that chose the right destination for your Vacation?



This word I have in this moment, further down you will meet 2 people with that motivates me to give my best to this project to you.

I’m sure there are more thousands of reasons that I am not able to say, here at Natal you can have gastronomic experience at the highest level, parties and internationally renowned parties, and if you practise Windsurf or Kitesurf is the best place for this as it is one of the regions with the strongest winds in the world!

Finally, I, Ricardo Zugno,

“I  strongly believe that Natal can be the best trip of your life, people here can delight you in a special way.

Besides, I also believe that Natal has the special power to make people reflect on their lives and change them for the better after the trip, in fact, your life will never be the same again after Natal..” ~ Ricardo Zugno.

Another phrase that makes my days better:

“” If you want to go fast, go alone; if you want to go far, go accompanied. African Proverb.


Do you know why I believe all this?

I live it daily and I’ve seen people set foot here and change or find the meaning of their lives.

As the end of afternoon or on a sunny morning, there is here the magic that will make you get in touch with the best of yourself.

I am the result of that magic and I am grateful to all who gave me for Natal.
