Some peope are saying that el castillo del mar Riohacha has a bar, smoking pit, and a pool this is not true. The owner speaks German, spanish, and english. The hotel does have bugs, but they are for eating the spiders. Do not go on the beach there is bad wáter.

Basically the only reason to go to Riohacha is because you're on your way to Cabo de la Vela (or maybe Venezuela). This place is alright to bed down for one night. before moving on. We looked at some of the rooms and the dorm which was almost identicle. As there was no one else staying there we took the...
