Trip Planner: South America / Colombia / La Guajira Department / Uribia / Wildlife Areas / Punta Gallinas
Explore the arid Punta Gallinas, the northernmost point of both Colombia and South America. The desert landscape abounds with rolling dunes and sparse vegetation, adding to the sense of remoteness felt at the end of the continent. Travel to the area is not straightforward; you can either take a long, uncomfortable, but authentic trip on public transport, or visit with a tour company. Tours include conveniences, such as meals and traditional hammock accommodation. To visit Punta Gallinas and other attractions in Uribia, use our Uribia vacation generator.

My recommendation is to go one day to the next, stay at dawn the journey is long and heavy, especially the return. Carry water, sweets, fruits, there is little achieved. Hotel alexandra has hammocks to rent and has batteries of bath. In the restaurant only sell drinks and meals. The sea is a spectacle and the Lighthouse is more a milestone to something nice. Best of all are the dunes, go with time, enjoy it, spend a long time, because in few parts you will find so much peace of mind.View original

They should know that it is important to take plenty of water and food there, but especially for children coming from all the road sort of improvised "catches" asking for candy, water... journey of introspection, everything inside, is not the plan Tomb but admiration and gratitude but above all to offer in the midst of hardship.View original

We loved this site exceptional and sublime, and our 2 nights spent in the Hospedaje Luz Mila. We accept without problem and we forget the basic comfort, not very clear cold water from the shower and basic cooking in the rancheria so the environment is incredible, wonderful and friendly. In short, an isolated and fantastic place not to be missed!View original
