The dunes of Taroa

The slope of the sandy mountain is steep, and its summit affords a view of the Caribbean Sea.  It might seem like a mirage, but this is the landscape of the dunes of Taroa in Punta Gallinas, the northernmost site of Colombia and South America.  This site can be reached via motorboat in a 2-hour journey following a 3-hour overland journey north from Riohacha.
