For those of you who don’t know, La Guajira is the northern most department in Colombia. It is an exotic peninsula bordered by Venezuela and the Caribbean Sea. It contains some of the most incredible natural landscapes I have ever laid eyes on and is home to the incredible Wayuu indigenous group.

The Harsh Guajira Desert

Right up in the north-eastern corner of Colombia, bordering Venezuela and the Caribbean lies the Guajira peninsula. This is a region that nominally belongs to Colombia but remains sparsely populated and out of touch with the rest of the country due in part to its hostile yet intriguing desert environment. Make the trip here now as it is slowly becoming a travel destination for the more intrepid visitor.
