Punta Gallinas is the extreme north of Colombia and South America, an impressive natural setting of plateaus, dunes and rocky cliffs, which emerge from the sea, hugging the beautiful Bahía Hondita. Its exotic beaches and mangrove belts keep the charm of the virgin and lonely place where the essence of the elements is revealed.

There are no conventional hotels, and the accommodation is carried out in the Wayuu communities visited.

With the increase in tourist activity in recent seasons, the frequency of informal tolls, raised with ropes by indigenous children asking for water, food and money, has also increased. We understand that this situation can be uncomfortable for tourists, due to their large number on the road and the conditions of the children, but it must be understood as part of the reality of this autonomous indigenous territory, governed by its norms and customs. To address this situation, the guides and drivers of the route, as part of their activity, take food to distribute and it is also possible, if the visitors agree and it seems convenient, to participate by buying products that they consider suitable for children and their families.
