A visit to Nabusimake makes for a long day trip from Santa Marta, about three hours each direction, but how often can you say you have visited the land where the sun is born? That is how the Arhuaco people, one of Colombia's 83 indigenous nations, view this sacred site. You'll require permission from the tribe before visiting the circle of buildings that are unoccupied and only used during religious ceremonies, and you'll be accompanied by a guide during your visit. A trip here offers a rare glimpse into the spiritual life of a people whose culture has endured through the centuries.
