The Sugar Pylon

Three hours north of Riohacha, on Cape La Vela, is what is known as The Sugar Pylon (el Pilón de Azúcar), a hill whose summit seems far away, but which can be reached on foot in only 15 minutes. The heights of this small mountain, characterized by its strong bracing winds, features altar to the Virgin of Fatima, as well as an impressive view of the Caribbean Sea. 


Encounter the indigenous Wayúu culture at their settlements. Relax on the beaches of Cabo de La Vela. Take in the sights and sounds of the nature reserves in the area. These are just some of the many enticing options that await travelers at Riohacha.
