Cabo de la Vela hamacs

There are some options of accommodation in Cabo de la Vela. Not all of them are totally comfortable or clean, so you will probably have to walk and explore the town, to find the best places.

It’s very common (and recommended) to spend the night in a hammock at the sea shore. It’s very safe, fresh and the down is amazing!

We stayed at the Rancho de Xiomy, which has also private rooms and the staff is very nice.

=> In Cabo they don’t have drinking water, so you need to ask for it in the hotels when you need for your personal grooming.

FOOD AND RESTAURANTS
..........................................................................................................................................

The typical dish in Cabo de la Vela is fish with ‘patacones’, rice and salad. The red porgy is delicious and, although it’s more expensive than the others, we strongly recommend it.

Here the food is expensive because of the extra efforts that the transport and storage of the groceries requires. Fruits can be a luxury, but to enjoy a fresh juice after a morning in the beach and the sun might be one of the highlights of your day.   

In the Rancho de Xiomy the make very good food. Prices are between 10.000 and 15.000 pesos for a complete lunch or dinner (soup, fish and beverage) and between 5.000 and 7.000 pesos for breakfast.

HOW TO GET THERE
..........................................................................................................................................

First, go from Riohacha to Uribia. The journey lasts 1 hour but there are no buses to take you there, the only option is a car that will drive you for 15.000 pesos.

Once in Uribia, ask for the trucks that get to Cabo de la vela. They cost 15.000 pesos for a 2 or 3 hours ride through the highway and then a desert road until you get to Cabo.
