The Sanctuary of the Flamingos in the Camarones Township, 20 minutes from Riohacha, has been for many years the indispensable reference for the visit of wildlife lovers. With its system of coastal lagoons and mangroves, this reserve is home to one of the most diverse populations of shorebirds in the Colombian Caribbean. A diverse landscape that is seen between the peaks of the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta and the dry forest of the Guajiras savannas, framing the fishing and grazing work of a mestizo village that testifies with its food and its ancestral customs, of that powerful mix of Afro-descendant culture with the indigenous Wayuu world.
