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.
