Next you’ll start on a short ecological walk for approximately 20 minutes (0.6mi / 1 km) to reach the Wiwa Gotsezhy Refuge, a small indigenous community made up of several families. Here you will feel like you’re at home, as they are all so very friendly and helpful. They’ll be explaining and showing you how they have been able to coexist with nature for hundreds of years.
At approximately 8:00 am you’ll be sitting down to enjoy a wonderful breakfast prepared by community woman, which will be based on your eating habits and the delicious indigenous cuisine of this place.

Around 12pm you’ll enjoy lunch and a bit of a rest in the hammocks, before enjoying a refreshing swim in the ancestral Waterfall Matuna.
After an hour or so in the amazing waters of this magical river and waterfall, you’ll return to Gotsechy to take more last minute photos with the MAMO and the indigenous families that live there. Once you have all the photos your camera can hold you’ll start the journey back to the Gotsezhy Village where the 4 × 4 Vehicle will be waiting for you to take you back to Santa Marta.
