We thought the park was beautifully done for visitors to learn about the history unearthed in the area's stones. The setting - San Agustin area - is breathtaking.

Really amazing things to see here. So many unique statues and set in a well developed park. It ends with an amazing viewpoint! Go to this place.

The place is a true mystery, nobody really knows anything about the culture, the guides tell you they are people wearing masks and the musuem tell you they are hybrid people. All in all is amazing and cool to come up with your own hypothesis about this ancient culture.. But if you look closely you can see Olmec, Easter Island,... More

We had an awesome visit as a group of friends and small children to the San Agustin park. There is so much to see, and the figures are interesting for adults and children alike. One could easily spend a whole day at this park, but the onsite food offer is quite poor so it could be a good idea to... More

Well to watch the statues for first time it is great, but after a while I felt a little bit bored... That could be, because I am not that interested in the culture and historical facts. But that is one of not that many things you can do there, so go for it ;)

Nobody knows about the civilization that created those statues, so you don't really need a guide. Just read about it before you travel there, and read the information you'll find in the little "passport" they'll give you at the entrance. That's it. Enjoy the walk and discover all these fascinating statues in beautiful natural surroundings.

Me and my partner walked to the park from San Agustin, an easy walk apparently 3k but did feel a little more. But there is also a bus (mini van) for 1000 or 2000pesos. Once at the park you by your ticket (passport) adult price 20,000pesos. It is valid for two days giving you access to the museum statue walk... More

I had read about Pacho in the lonely planet guidebook and decided to make the trip to San agustin with the intention of horse riding as a interesting and alternative way to see some ruins. The taxi driver who picked me up at first took me to another hostel saying that it was cheaper and there was also horse riding... More

The people who care for this area have gone to great measures to protect these artifacts for posterity. They're also presented in a way that interesting to all tourists, whether you're interested in history or not. It was a great way to spend an afternoon in San Agustin.
