Program description

Cabo de la Vela and Punta Gallinas are located in the north-east of Colombia. Both places are characterized by a contrasting geography made of desert, rocky cliffs, with the blue sea that flowing creates beautiful bays, a unique landscape in the world. It is a remote area and not easily accessible. However, the journey to this site, the northernmost of Colombia, is awesome. We will start an adventure in 4x4 jeeps passing through small villages scattered throughout the desert. In those villages lives the Wayuú ethnic group. This represents the most numerous indigenous population in the country that still preserve the soul of its cultural identity.

La Guajira charms its visitors with exotic beaches, immense sand dunes and dreamy sunsets. Among the attractions of this region are the Cabo de la Vela, Punta Gallinas, Bahia Honda, the salt mines of Manaure and the Makuira National Park. La Guajira does not have luxury infrastructure, but thanks to the kindness of the people, who live in the middle of the desert, and its natural beauties will give you all you need to fully appreciate it. If you can give up the comfort for a while to experience a trip that combines nature and culture, then this is the ideal route. Join this trip into a virgin and lonely place which reveals the essence of the spirit
