WHY SHOULD YOU GO TO yanamak camp?
A desert by the sea in the extreme north of South America with unique sunsets and nights full of shooting stars. You are guaranteed to see at least 2 a day! You can also know and learn about the customs and traditions of the Wayu indigenous people.
Kajuno campers have experienced the Yanamak Camp program since 2015 when we opened this location in La Guajira.
Comfortable facilities with bathrooms and rooms separated by gender, cabins organized for 5-7 campers plus a counselor (sometimes 1 more CIT). The first bath of the day is in the sea and at the end of the afternoon we take a delicious shower with fresh water before going to sleep.

ACTIVITIES TO ENJOY
A unique opportunity to learn the thousand-year-old tradition of the weaving technique mastered by the Wayú, from where the hammocks, backpacks and fabrics of their clothing come from.
Our campers use raw materials from the ocean such as cacti and sand to build housing structures with the local technique and tradition of the Wayú culture.
Optional challenge for Kajuno campers that teaches to recognize physical and mental limits while strengthening teamwork as the basis of the journey.
We head out to sea to paddle and do team maneuvers, sailing on our high quality double tandem deck kayaks.
This activity is for the bravest Kajuno campers as biking in the desert becomes more demanding due to the terrain, temperature and wind.
We use a directional kite to pull the body over the board which in turn glides over the water. We have professional equipment and instructors for one on one guidance.
You will know all the secrets to cook typical local dishes both in the desert with the sun and the wind, and from the comfort of the kitchen.
We have an ideal bay for this activity, which more than high technique, offers a lot of fun and unity among the campers of Yanamak Camp.

TESTIMONIES FROM THE KAJUNA FAMILY
For my son it was a fascinating experience, being able to learn about the Wayuu ancestral culture within his own country was enriching.
After the pandemic my children lived under stress and thanks to Kajuyali they reunited with themselves in La Guajira.
Knowing new territories, people and customs is a gift that my son will stay with forever.
100% recommended Yanamak! The interaction with the Wayuu community allowed my son to see life from another point of view
Super recommended! Imagine that your daughter comes home telling you how the stars look in the sky of La Guajira
My children were in the camp that is held in La Guajira and the autonomy and maturity they acquired was incredible.
