Get a clear insight into the Wayuu culture
The tours leave from Riohacha, the major city in La Guajira, situated 2 hours away from Palomino.
This 2-day experience allows the visitor to share a great and genuine human experience in a Rancheria Wayuu, very different from the “fake cultural tour” offered by other travel agencies.
The first activity happens in the local market of Riohacha to buy food for different meals. Afterward, you join Lizandro and his family in a Wayuu farm -rancheria- to share their everyday life. Within a friendly and joyful atmosphere, you help cooking lunch and dinner, fetching some water in the well, weaving a Wayuu bag, and making the bonfire. Nothing is better than a homemade arepa stuffed with cheese.
Throughout this 2-day activity, Lizandro teaches you his beliefs and old customs to deal with life. It’s a life-changing experience that leads up to embrace nature and reconsider what’s really important in your life. You end the sojourn at school, with friendly kids who welcome you with giant smiles.
As you noticed, this activity is worth including in your Colombia itinerary if you want a genuine and spiritual experience.
