Villavieja is one of those places in the world where time seems to have stopped, it is a place where you experience a feeling of peace and tranquility, it is a point where the immediate technological connection is put aside to prepare to enter a state of connection with the cosmos.
This dry region is the second largest arid zone in Colombia after the Guajira peninsula, and is characterized by two types of rocks with different colors: red rocks in the sector near Cuzco, and gray ones in the area near “Los Hoyos " As you discover the desert, check out local wildlife, including birds, snakes, spiders, and ocelots. Even if you don't see any creatures, you will surely enjoy the spectacular desert landscape.
