these carved stones are amazing. Some are very tall and the carving on a lot of them is very detailed. Not only are they in the park but widespread over a large area near here. San Agustin is small but there are plenty of hotels/hostels...More

If you venture to San Augustine, Huila , Colombia and do not go to the archaeological Park you're cheating yourself out of an ancient connection to the wonderful people who to this day and inhabit this region. It is a fantastic archaeological Park and has...More

Interesting place that leaves more questions than it answers. Its not even known who these people were who inhabited the area 2000 years ago. The burial sites, the carved stones, all very interesting and worth the long drive. Got talked into a tour the next...More
