This small fishing town is located 1 hour away from Riohacha, which is perfect for organizing an expedition to the La Guajira desert.

Dibulla is not yet famous among travelers, and we hope it won’t become the next “Palomino.” Enjoy the long white sand beaches and swim in the river coming from the highest Sierra Nevada’s peaks.

You won’t find lots of information about this place, but you won’t regret it if you add it to your Colombia Itinerary. It’s our favorite little beach town on this side of the Caribbean Coast.

Cars are leaving from Palomino or Riohacha. It’s the easiest way to reach Dibulla.
