Welcome to La Guajira Peninsula

This is a diesel-and-dust landscape with more than a whiff of lawlessness. Its symbol might be a plastic bag caught in a treeless bush. Upper Guajira is where most adventure seekers are headed; here you'll find end-of-the-world paradises such as kitesurfing capital Cabo de la Vela, and Punta Gallinas, an immaculate collision of desert sand dunes and brilliant blue sea that is perhaps the Caribbean coast's most remarkable landscape.
