Cultural, biological and 4x4 Expedition
The Guajira peninsula is the northernmost region of Colombia, a land of landscapes that contrast powerfully between them and is also the home of Colombia's native culture with the largest population: the Wayuu culture, an emblem of the preservation of the ansestral culture. The landscape of the Guajira peninsula is the landscape of a semi-desert ecosystem of thorny vegetation formed as it is a great plain exposed to the trade winds, there is only 1 small mountainous area of approximately 850 meters at its highest point, La Serranía del Macuira.
4 Days trip: Punta Gallinas: 

At 8 o'clock in the morning from the De La Vela cape, we continue our journey through La Guajira, which will take us to another destination: Punta Gallinas, the most northern place in South America! A distant place (5 hours approx from De La Vela cape) of impressive desert landscapes and a very diverse and surprising coastal fauna and flora. There we will spend the afternoon to see once again one of the most beautiful sunsets in Colombia. The next day, at 8 in the morning we will start our return to your location in Riohacha.
5 Days trip: Serranía del Macuira:
This option of 5 days is made to have the opportunity to make a trekking crossing the mountainous area of Macuira to enjoy this magical place more carefully crossing through this small mountain range to dive into the forest of this oasis, knowing the history, discovering the fauna and flora and reaching peaks of up to 500 meters in order to admire in one single panorama the immensity of the desert, the mountain range and the contrast of both ecosystems. At the end of the day we will rest for the next day and very early in the morning, start our trip back to your location in Riohacha.
2 Days trip: De La Vela Cape: 

We will start this adventure at 6 o'clock in the morning in your location in Santa Marta, from there we will board the 4x4 vehicle that will take us through the immense desert of La Guajira; our first destinations will be Manaure: a town dedicated to the extraction of sea salt; and Uribia, known as the indigenous capital of Colombia for being a town populated mostly by indigenous Wayuu, a place full of its culture. Finally and in time we will arrive at Cape De La Vela to spend the afternoon and watch the sunset from this beautiful geographical feature.
