Surround yourself with exotic beauty and local culture at Hotel Waya Guajira.
Our brand new, eco-friendly property is perched on a rural mountaintop in the heart of Colombia’s La Guajira Peninsula, just 45 minutes from the capital city of Riohacha. Guests will find themselves close to mountain trails and unlimited eco- and ethnic-tourism opportunities. The famous Cerrejón coalmine is also just five minutes from our doorstep.
As La Guajira’s only hotel to receive LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification from the Green Building Certification Institute, we go to great lengths to preserve our natural environment. Guests who choose to stay at Hotel Waya not only minimize their carbon footprints, but also conserve water, forests and reduce waste through our recycling program.
Luckily, sustainability doesn’t have to compromise comfort. Each of Hotel Waya’s 140 modern guestrooms includes free Wi-Fi, a private terrace, minibar, flat-screen TV and free breakfast. Our property also boasts an outdoor pool, fitness center, rooftop solarium, nature trails, three dining options and a relaxing spa with three hot tubs.
Because Hotel Waya is located in the heart of Wayuu country, we embrace the rich cultural heritage of the native Wayuu people, who have inhabited this region for more than 500 years. Our inn features handmade Wayuu artwork, handicrafts and seasonal activities to educate visitors. Guests even have the option of sleeping outdoors, Wayuu-style, in traditional hand-woven hammocks.
