With undoubtedly Colombia’s most beautiful sunset, Cabo de la Vela is the most popular tourist attraction in La Guajira and particularly for its incredible windsurfing. This small town is steeped in indigenous Wayuu traditions and truly feels like a different world. The surrounding desert is truly a golden forest of cacti and the views from atop the Pilon de Azucar will remind you that there is real beauty in simplicity. This trip shows you a different side of Colombia from the tropical rainforests of Santa Marta and shows the vast range of environments which exist within this biodiverse country.
