The archeological park in San Agustin is well worth the effort it takes to get there. It was one of the most special things to see during our trip to Colombia. It is very well laid out with good explanations in both Spanish and English. The museum was excellent and worth spending some time in before going to see all... More

Very well maintained with relatively easy trail. Got lots of insight towards the pre hispanic history, especially in the museum. Worth the time and money to spend a short afternoon here. The small problem I found is all signboard in the park has the explanation only in Spanish, but you can still get the pretty same info from the museum.... More

This park consists of a small museum which provides the background and cultural significance of what you are about to see before you wander the park. After the small museum you can choose your path, a forest walk with statues amongst trees without much context or the loop circuit of statues in their original spots. Obviously you are going to...

If you are in the area, I would recommend going to this archaeological park, especially if you are interested in ancient cultures and want to learn the difference between them. Don't expect to see ruins of an ancient city. The ruins itself are scarce, but there are plenty sculptures, some of which are very interesting. I attached a photo of... More

It is an attraction worth visiting, take the time to enjoy the beauty of nature, wildlife and local flora that frames all the tombs and ancient culture attractions.

It's definitely the best of several such sites around San Agustin. Best for the statues and tombs. But it is a large park. It will take you 2 to 3 hours to get around it. The park is about 2.5km out of town. You can walk to it, catch the shuttle bus for 1200 COP or get a taxi. The... More

Not to be missed! Talk a walk trough the big archeological park. Plan half a day minimum. Entree frees are not much in comparaison to what you see and how well maintained the parc is.

It is not like Disney all organized. The park is all spread out with different areas you must drive to. We only had time to visit the main one. We got a 10 year old not an official guide that took us around. Some of what we saw reminded us of what we saw in the museum in Mexico City.

One of the main reasons you visit San Agustin is to visit the archaeological sites. Read some history first so you have an idea what you are looking at. There is a rich fabulous history here in Colombia covering thousands of years. Dont bother if you dont like history. This is a quiet backwater of rivers, jungles, farms, markets, birds... More
