 Get to know Riohacha (no more

Riohacha, Colombia, is the capital city of the La Guajira region, home to Colombia's largest desert. The town itself is small and quaint and you will find everything you need during your stay, especially to stock up if you are wanting to head into the desert. The majority of the hostels in Riohacha, Colombia, are located within walking distance to the beach and near the main square. To get to your Riohacha, Colombia hostel from the bus station, you can either walk for twenty-odd minutes or take a taxi, as the bus terminal is back up on the main highway.

Majority of people come here as it is the gateway to Cabo de la Vela and Punta Gallinas. For both of these destinations, your hostel in Riohacha, Colombia, can help you book a tour for up to four days to explore or you can choose to be a little more adventurous and attempt a self-guided trip. Given that majority of people that live out this way are indigenous, English is not very prominently spoken and you need to have a solid understanding of Spanish to get around and do things, even on a tour.

The town of Riohacha has a nice beach, which is lined with vendors of handicrafts from the indigenous people of La Guajira. There is a nice, old stone church off the park to see as you walk around the town too. If you're looking for more handicrafts, there is a market for them, just ask where at your Riohacha, Colombia hostel. You can also choose to take a day trip to the flamingo sanctuary if you choose, or head a small way out of town to see the salt mines at Manuare.

If you're looking for an adventure that is a little bit off the beaten track, then Riohacha is a great place to base yourself to start exploring.
