EL TERRITORIO WAYUU
Experience the basic life of the wayuu tribe in the desert. Relax at the beach - but with a lot of sunscream - or have a tour with the motorbike in Cabo de la Vela to Pilon the Azucar, Cueva del Diablo or Playa Ojo de Agua - all in walking distance. Also the typical wayuu bags are offered everywhere. Please try to avoid to buy from children and avoid to give food - they should be at school - not selling "Manillas". The local language is Wayuunaiki, my mother tongue. It is not easy to learn, but we teach you some basic words.
