Tibau is a beach town in Rio Grande do Norte, on the very border of Ceará. This is the main resort for the people of Mossoró, who spill out on the beaches both to the east and west during most weekends. January packs with local holidaymakers.
If you stay near the center, it is all walkable. Both taxis and mototaxis available.
A couple of bars along Rua Tubarão. First Saturday of every month has a beach party just north of the center. Loads of cars on the beach, each with its stereo going.
Heaps of pousadas
Always queues on the cyber cafes during holidays.
