We visited the archeological park via the regular bus that runs from there to town, and had a great time. The exhibits were exceptional, and the entire park was showcased in a very beautiful and engaging way. This is a must see if you are in San Agustin!

This is a well organised and well maintained park. You really need a guide to explain the content to you. Allow a good half a day to do the place justice. Marino spoke excellent English, and really brought the place alive for us - contact me if you want his details.

Tired of waiting for the Archeological Park Mini bus, we walked the 3 km up to the museum entrance. After paying $8.50 each for our "Passportes", we used the clean restrooms, then circled through their informative museum explaining the 20th C excavations. After taking photos of several stone displays, we took the marked causeway to the 3km circuit of the... More

The park is wonderful. We payed extra for a guide, which at first seemed a little pricey. But we learned much more than we could have otherwise, and when we visited more sites later in the week we were able to reference what we had learned on our first day in the Archaeological Park.

It's a very well looked after park with lovely old ladies selling water as you start your walk. The park is beautiful and the statues are well maintained. It's a must-see.

This a Magic place, a nice walk and well organized. Recomended for anyone. Not English translation then it is recomended to study before the visit or go with a guide of the town.

It is beautiful , but the tour is more likely 3 hours and if you do something more it is 3 and half.I recommend you should book a guide to understand what happens

If you're in the neighborhood this is definitely worth a visit. Most about the people who created these artifacts is unknown. That makes it mysterious but also means that you leave with more questions than answers. We had a very knowledgeable local guide (Señor Marino) who's detailed descriptions made the place come alive. I definitely recommend having a guide, otherwise... More
