Riohacha

Sightseeing Historic Sites Adventure
Lying where the Rancheria River flows into the Caribbean Sea, Riohacha serves as a gateway to the desert region of La Guajira Peninsula. The small city of about 150,000 inhabitants serves primarily as a hub for reaching and departing La Guajira, so don't be surprised if your schedule necessitates at least a few hours in town. Although you won't find a wealth of things to do in Riohacha, a palm-tree-lined beach, pier, and colonial church provide sufficient diversions to keep you occupied during your stay. Take a look at our Colombia vacation planner to refine the details of your trip to Riohacha.
