Sleeping in Chinchorros

Animal & Plant Sanctuary Los Flamencos: you will spend the night in simple cabañas in this natural park after having enjoyed the pink flamingos and other animals.

Rancherias: spending the night in a Rancheria means sleeping either in a warm, spacious and handwoven chinchorro (hammock) or in a hut made of bamboo and ‘yotojoro’ (the wood on the inside of a Guajira cactus). Be as the local Wayuu Indians and try the hammock, you will be amazed about the good’s night sleep in the open air. Keep in mind that the early morning breeze can be cold, so some warm clothes at night are recommended.

Punta Gallinas: here you will sleep in a handwoven chinchorro (hammock), as huts are limited.
