Pretty park but the entrance fee is a bit steep. If you go take your bathers to make most of the swimming hole included in the price.

Gallineral is a beautiful park right off the busiest road in San Gil. Stepping into the park takes you away from the busy streets and noise right outside the gates. The entry fee is $10000 COP per adult, $5000 for Seniors and free for under...More

Awsome to see how the parc gets alive at night with all the lights, and to do peoplewatching going crazy over all the teens in costumes and posing with Shreck

Bring a book and spend a relaxing afternoon here. My travel guide said it had a Lord of the Rings atmosphere and that it completely on par!

This is essentially a park in the town near the river, that has beautiful plants, flowers and foilage--plus some spectacular trees (tall and magical decorated naturally with moss). Though the $6,000 peso entrance was a little steep for a small park with tourist shops, cafe...More

For 6000 COP to get in probably only worth about 30 mins - 1 hour of walking around. Nice enough, but the plants aren't that exciting and not really anything more than you would have seen if you have travEled around different parts of Colombia.

This botanical garden--located where the Quebrada Curiti meets the Rio Fonce--is a shaded garden-like setting, meant for solitary strolls...or lazy afternoons with a good book or good friends. I found the place kinda "uninspiring" and "normal"...however, I have visited many gorgeous locales around the world!...More
