As much as the Perito Moreno in Argentina or the desert of Uyuni in Bolivia. This shows the beauty of the place!View original

He had hired a Tour that picked me up at my hostel at 5:30 am. We were 4 people, my fellow travelers were lawyers and teachers from a prestigious University of Bogotá. Go through Riohacha and stopped in Uribia to buy supplies of water and sweets for the children; After a long journey, we arrived at the Cabo de la Vela, where we had lunch at a rancheria lobster for $30,000 (very economical). The day I finish watching a beautiful sunset at the lighthouse, which is a nice vantage point. The next day started my trip to Punta Gallinas at 5:30 am, I said goodbye to my travelling companion and take the tour with other travelers: A Chinese, a couple of Espanoles-ingleses and two Dutch pretty. During the trip to Punta Gallinas we have muuchos catches of children asking for food or water so you have to be prepared to bring them something. We stayed in the rancheria Alexandra, a very quiet place where we carry out tours to Punta Gallinas remaining about 30 min to 1 hour on carriage of the rancheria. Is a magic that worth goingView original
