Cabo de la vela Colombia - Latinamerikaliv 03

Which is the most beautiful place in Colombia? What should we visit? Where are there least tourists? These are questions that I often get. One of my top answers? Cabo de la Vela. This is the norhtenmost tip of South America. It’s indigenous Wayúu territory on both sides of the border between Colombia and Venezuela. An extremely arid area, without water pipelining, electricity or tarmac roads. But with extraordinary views, warm sea, tranquility and delicious sea food.
