Myths for Monday -- Punta de Lajas Legend

According to Legend, in the Cerro del Vita region of the department of Vichada, there is a large rock in the Punta de Laja area. Under that rock is a tunnel that leads to a secret city. When she does not want to allow fishing, the queen of that city, Rosita, leaves the city and turns into a pink dolphin (tonina). In her form of a tonina with a white spot on her neck, she chases away the fish and the fishermen. She takes their nets. When the fisherman recognize her, they leave the area.
