ITINERARY

Day 1: START OF YOUR DESERT ADVENTURES

 

Guajira shows a very peculiar side of Colombia with rough coastlines and arid deserts as it is one of the driest areas on earth. It is a place of truly unique sceneries displaying red desert, emerald lakes, salt mines, blue oceans, man-sized cacti, pink flamingos and yellow dunes. This tour will bring you to the most beautiful spots of this exceptional and untouched region.

 

First, you will be picked up at the local airport of Rioacha from where you will start heading to Cabo De la Vela. On your way you will make different stops like in Uribía, Manaure, and a working salt mine where you can see the colorful salt mines and the whole process to get to the salt we get on our plate.

 

After you made yourself comfortable in your room you will be served a typical regional dish as lunch. In the afternoon you will go visit the beach where the Pilon de Azucar is located and enjoy a spectacular sunset from the lighthouse near Cabo de La Vela.

 

Diner will served in your hotel and you can choose between sleeping in a hammock, like the locals, or a bed.
