Welcome to Guajira, a super cool region in the tippy-top corner of Colombia where the desert kisses the sea. Known for its awesome landscapes, rich indigenous culture, and totally unique vibe, Guajira is like stepping into another world.

The Wayúu are an indigenous ethnic group inhabiting the Guajira Peninsula, known for their rich culture and traditions.
