4.7/5 based on 120+ reviews on the web
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.

  • No doubt Punta Gallinas is one of the least known areas of tourism in Colombia, it is a great destination if you have time because the journey is long and hard towards the region of Guajira. Images and sunsets are wonderful, although the beaches have long waves. The dunes of Taroa are its main attraction. Sleep in chinchorro is good, although it runs wind at night. :) I recommend it to travelers that they walk not short of time and want to get lost in the less tourist wonders of the area.

  • It is a place incredible, the most cute or interest are the dunes and the sea that is there same. Ideal for laying tip to see the sunset on the beach of punta needle. We stayed at the hotel Alexandra, it is the first to reach punta chickens, people are very friendly and the food is very rich. It is hosting in hammocks mostly but it is super comfortable.
