Welcome to Cabo de la Vela

The surrounding area is a highlight of the Upper Guajira and one of the most starkly beautiful spots in Colombia. The cape for which it's named is full of rocky cliffs above and sandy beaches below, all set against a backdrop of stunning desert ochres and aquamarines.

If you're looking for peace, Cabo is best avoided around Easter, December and January, when Colombians arrive to party.
