Punta Gallinas

Punta Gallinas is Colombia’s and South America’s northernmost point, very remote and completely unspoilt. From Cabo de la Vela it is a 4 hour drive on dirt roads through the desert.


There are few options for accommodation, without any wifi at all but the very best view of the stars at night. The lighthouse that marks the northernmost point and the dunes of Taroa are worth seeing and closeby.

The best way to discover this magical place is a downwinder in the lagoon, through the mangroves until reaching the open sea.
