Macuira National Nature Park is a 25,000-hectare oasis located in the desert of Upper Guajira. This reserve, which is located north of Riohacha in Nazareth, in the municipality of Uribia, can be reached in 8 hours via a trip in an all-terrain vehicle. Macuira National Nature Park is ideal for bird watching, since 140 different bird species have been recorded at the site—17 of which can be seen there and nowhere else. A number of forest ecosystems can be found within the reserve.
