Uribia Restaurants

follow us

Uribia has very few restaurants, with a few hole-in-the-wall ones down in the market district on Avenida Fundador, where the majority of general stores are as well. Buy plenty of water here if going into the Alta Guajira, as it is much more expensive elsewhere ($1.60 for a five-liter jug). Uribia’s water is brackish and not suitable for purification. Goat forms a principle part of Wayuu cuisine and appears in such dishes as friche (stewed goat). Another meal to try is sahpulana, a soup made of beans, corn and squash. The traditional drink is chinchirri, a strong alcoholic beverage made from panela (raw sugar) and water.

Because of the presence of military personnel and other non-Wayuu, a few dance clubs and drinking establishments do operate in Uribia, despite such customs not being part of the Wayuu way of life. They are mostly the evening operations of restaurants.
