Continuing our journey through Colombia, we head north, to the Guajira peninsula, a deserted department (state) that juts out into the Caribbean sea and borders Venezuela. We will see the municipality of Camarones (literally “shrimp”) and the indigenous community of Loma Fresca (Fresh Hill), both located in the sanctuary of flora and fauna The Flamingos, and the beaches of Mayapo near the state capital, Riohacha. We will then continue north towards the salt mines of Manaure, located near Uribia, indigenous capital of Colombia.
