Riohacha

4.3
Lying where the Rancheria River flows into the Caribbean Sea, Riohacha serves as a gateway to the desert region of La Guajira Peninsula. The small city of about 150,000 inhabitants serves primarily as a hub for reaching and departing La Guajira, so don't be surprised if your schedule necessitates at least a few hours in town. Although you won't find a wealth of things to do in Riohacha, a palm-tree-lined beach, pier, and colonial church provide sufficient diversions to keep you occupied during your stay. Riohacha is in La Guajira Department. To arrange what you want to do in Riohacha, use our Colombia trip builder app .
