Peninsula of la guajira
Colombia, La Guajira

The Guajira Peninsula is the northernmost point of Latin America. The peninsula is a semi-desert with small hills. It is inhabited by the Vayu Indians (wayuu). They speak their own language, very different from Spanish.
As in any desert, you can find a huge variety of colors inherent in the region. The traditional products of the Vayu Indians are colored bags - waterbags, and chinchorro - a type of hammock that is woven by hand and takes up to 4 months to work.
Life on the peninsula is not easy, since almost the entire territory is deserted and people sometimes have to survive in the wind that almost constantly blows along the coast. On the other hand, kite and windsurfing enthusiasts regularly come here for their favorite pastime - windsurfing and kitesurfing (there are no waves here).
