I had a lot of anticipation about this trip, but I left wanting to run as fast as possible. I drove my car and two guys were chasing us for more than 10 kilometers. Lots of trash. Locals do not trust you and treat you...More

Guajira is amazing, but do not go with Guajira Magica Excursiones (Magic Tours). On a 3 day tour, we spent our first night in Cabo de la Vela. My Spanish is not the best and I was told we would have a local guide, so...More

If you are wanting to see Punta Gallinas, do yourself a favour and organize a tour from Riohacha. We originally planned to ‘do it ourselves’ but are so glad we booked a tour. There is very little tourist infrastructure in Cabo de la Vela, and...More

La Guaijira and Cabo are amazing and interesting places to visit however the local population (Wayuu) are doing their best to upset tourists. There is a know security problem that seems unreported and ignored. Basically it is very dangerous to walk at night because there...More

Plenty of accommodation here, no need to book in advance. Mostly hammocks that go for around 10000 or 15000 per night or larger more comfortable 'chinchorros' I think around COP20000 (I recommend them). If you stay along the populated part of town (a stretch of...More

Think twice to go this place. Theres basically nothing to see, if you don´t kite surf. And if you go, take a tour. And then it´s even more boring place to see. We went with rental car, and when leaving the village, we got robbed...More

La Guajira is a very nice trip (Cabo de la Vela and then Punta Gallinas). Different tours can be booked directly in Cabo de la Vela. Don't book or stay in with "Toti", they seem nice but are thief. They make the price they want....More

That was a very good idea to get there! Already the city of Riohacha was not that touristic anymore and to continue from there was also kind of an adventure! We didn't book a tour and just tried to get there without a lead. At...More

To be honest, if all goes right then I see no problem with booking with Toti. However if things go wrong, this guy is not there to help you in solving the problem. At the moment we were there it started to rain heavily and...More
