"Just Phenomenal "

If you are looking for a place with great adventure and a place which most tourists dream of visiting, then there is nothing better than the La Guajira Desert. There are plenty of coal reserves in this area as well. Being in this desert, you can also have a chance of visiting The National Natural Park of Macuira.
