It's a great place to visit. I highly recommend

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

Very worth making a trip to, so interesting...You do need a local guide to make it worthwhile. The main archeological site nearest to the town of San Agustin (3km) is v large and it took us 4 hrs and a lot of walking, some uphill and downhill to get around it all - but you don't have to do it...

We were not very enthusiastic but it was oke. We saw the other two parks two days before on a jeep tour (very nice tour!) And already saw a lot of statues. When we came here we were statued out I guess. It is nice that you walk mostly in the shade. But if you see either this main park... More

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
