  • This is one great place to take Photos feeling in the edge of the world.is the northest point in south America. I recommend to take a tour, either in Riohacha or in santa Marta, because getting there is dificult and if you go by yourself you have to make a Lot of transbords and negotiate with the locals. And because the place is so far, you are not going to have a lot of time to enjoy. We went from santa Marta with magic tour, it was great. Even though our AC broke in cabo de la vela. They changed our car and we had no further problems. :) Just enjoy your trip, is going to be bumpy but It's worth it, the views are incredible.
