What are the pros and cons of living in Praia da Pipa?

Expats, digital nomads and retirees living in Praia da Pipa responded:

"I've lived in Sao Paulo for 5 years and now here in Praia da Pipa for 5 more years. We are very happy with Pipa as it is safe, has great people living here and has an excellent infrastructure. I have fiber optics internet with 300 mbps download and there are 3 competing companies located within this service area. The exchange is currently R$1.00 = $5.35 USD so our money goes a long way. Natal is located 1 hour drive from our house and we chose to purchase a car. So we can go to Natal, a metro city of 1.3 million people.........so if we can't find what we are looking for here in Pipa we can drive to Natal for better quality groceries, medical care, etc," remarked another expat in Praia da Pipa.

"Pipa has many of the wonderful top rated beaches in Brazil. Dolphins are often swimming in the shallow parts near the beaches for some great photos. Pipa is a large sea turtle preserve where the turtles often come onto the beaches to build their next and lay their eggs. One must put up with the tourist, but the infrastructure for the city is wonderful with full sewage, water and high speed internet. I have fiber optics with 300 mbps download and 60 mbps upload," explained one expat living in Praia da Pipa.

"Pipa is a beautiful beach and tourist town with a very good infrastructure. Water & sewage is well established and there are 3 different high speed internet companies to choose form. I have 300 mbps download so watching movies on line is no problem. Pipa has many small grocery stores and 1 large so finding thing you need is easy but the prices are based on being a tourist area and are high higher than in Natal. As an expat the cost of living here in Pipa and Brazil is much lower than my home country," said another expat in living in Praia da Pipa, Brazil.
