La Guajira

La Guajira is located in the north of Colombia; it contains three natural parks, five indigenous groups and our Ecolodge. Its flora, its fauna, its wonderful culture and its mesmerizing beauty have turned La Guajira into a world tourist destination that must be visited.

Indigenous Groups

La Guajira is home to Wayus, Arhuacos, Kogis, Wiwas and Kankuamos, owners of great ancestral wisdom and outstanding artisans. With their hands they weave the iconic Wayu backpacks, beautiful hammocks and accessories with fibers that grow in their land.

La Sierra Nevada

Marvel at the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, one of the highest coastal mountains in the world, and host of the highest peak in Colombia: Christopher Columbus. On clear mornings, the Sierra looks out and can be seen from Awatawaa's beach.


Colombia has the greatest bird biodiversity in the world; it has around 1950 species. About 500 can be seen in La Guajira, and many of these rest in the Mamavita Swamp, our backyard.



You can have an aperitif in our bar while you enjoy the beach or watch the sunset over the Caribbean Sea, as the night arrives.



With all meals included, in Awatawaa you will be able to know the ancestral gastronomic tradition of La Guajira through carefully created dishes, with delicious vegan and vegetarian options.


Beach, Wind and Sea.

With 300 meters of beach and a calm sea at ideal temperature, you can enjoy a spectacular beach and a sea that invites to bathe.


Beach, Wind and Sea.

Walk along the beach while you see another unique sunset in our Ecolodge.



We offer different tours managed by specialized companies to know the indigenous cultures of Wayu, Kogi, Arhuaca, Wiwa and Kankuama groups: their beliefs, customs and rituals. Our invitation is to empathize with nature in hikes and boat tours by sea, rivers, waterfalls and the imposing Sierra Nevada.


Local Culture.

You will have the opportunity to get involved with the local culture through regional dance with a professional group that has won several national and international awards. Besides enjoying your show, they will teach you how to dance the main rhythms of the Colombian Caribbean coast.



Birdwatching is one of the main attractions of the area. In the bird season, you can be guided by natives who know the places very well, as well as local and migratory species.



In times of wind, you can raise your kites and practice kitesurfing on our beaches.
