Your Accommodation


You will be staying in traditional hammocks in the Posada Luzmila, right in front of the spot. If you think 'oh no hammocks!', you haven't seen a chinchorro made by the Wayuu yet, they are twice the size and pretty comfortable!

What to know before you go:

  • Bring waterproof sunscreen, sunglasses, board shorts and if possible a lycra or long-arm shirt.
  • There is little water and electricity, no ATMs and no Wifi, we’ll just unplug for a while!
  • Let us know if you have any special food requests, we try to make everything work!


  • During wind season from December until August
  • We are leaving every time there are 3-6 people interested.
  • It is possible to personalise the duration or itinerary for an interested group.
