URIBIA, GUAJIRA, COLOMBIA

Uribia, Guajira, Colombia

Uribia, Guajira, Colombia, is one of the few towns of the youngest department of Colombia (created in 2000), covering most of the Guajira Desert and the Colombian part of the Guajira peninsula. It is a quiet town along the main road through Guajira. Most visitors pass through the town on their way from Riohacha to Manaure, as there is really nothing to do in Uribia. The majority of the inhabitants belong to the Wayuu tribe.

Why consider booking our Colombia National Parks Tour? Because for the same price, our tour gets you to ALL places for which Colombia is famous, and on top of that, you get to see 7 National Parks/Reserves accompanied by a naturalist guide. There is nothing similar on the market. As Colombia can be combined with other countries, we organize tours in modules: Bogota and surrounding Andes, Caribbean Coast and the Amazon of Ecuador; the latter for the Colombian Amazon still not being recommended for foreign visitors. Colombia is a very large country, so you need to fly. To do so at hardly any additional costs, you need to book both Bogota and Cartagena - and Quito if you want to include the Amazon module - in your international ticket.

Destinations Overview:  Bogota old town, Cartagena, Villa de Leyva Zipaguira Salt Mine Church, Chingaza Reserve, Iguaque National Park, Flamencos Reserve, Cienega Mangroves Reserve, Lake Fuquene, Tayrona National Park, Manaure Salt Flats.
