A Lighthouse of Colombia

CO 14 Cabo de la Vela
latitude 12° 12' 35.1" N
longitude 72° 10' 45.2" W

Cabo de la Vela is a 'resort area' (rustic, not 5*), and tourists often hike to the lighthouse to enjoy the spectacular view. This area is very far removed (takes 4 hours by rough road and in absence of road across the desert from Riohacha). This photo highlights the sail shaped rock, which is where the name of the cape ('Vela') came from. hike ARLHS # COL-016
