Found just within the department of La Guajira, Palomino is a lush and exotic destination that is growing in popularity for those people looking to combine fantastic beaches with highland trails into the Sierra Nevada.
This is a land as yet unexploited, and thankfully so, as it has preserved its integrity from mega constructions and resorts leaving the visitor feeling refreshed with its authenticity and simplicity.
Palomino may arguably be the best bird-watching destination in all of Colombia given its location in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada, known for its variety of exotic endemic and migratory species that pass through.
Reset you internal clock here in Palomino as you will find yourself bedding down at nightfall and rising not long after dawn given the paucity of mains electricity. And that’s what it’s all about, remembering and enjoying a time before the crowds arrive.
