Our day trip in Cabo de la Vela begins very early, leaving from Riohacha to Manaure, where we will have an incredible view full of white mountains in the Salinas de Manaure. After learning everything about this place from the Wayuu Indigenous People, we will leave for Uribía (indigenous capital of Colombia), around us we will see cacti, desert, herds of goats and sheep. Once we are in Cabo de la Vela we will visit the Lighthouse, Playa Ojo de Agua, Playa Arco Iris.
