This is a peninsula full of contrasts provided by the sea, sand, coal, cactuses, and a small green oasis. It is the home of the Wayúu Indians – sons and daughters of the land and the rain - where reality blends with fantasy and the weaving of very artistic handicrafts.


  • Location: In the north of Colombia.
  • Temperature: 21-25°C.
  • How to get there: By air to Santa Marta and Riohacha; by land on trunk roads coming from the interior of the country.
