this is a jewel

San Agustin is a small village, very quiet and you will miss it when leaving. This park is absolutely to be seen, it deserves a trip itself.

San Agustin arheological park is easy to reach by bus (1200 cop) on the corner of calle 5 con 14 or by taxi for 6000 cop. Ticket costs 25000 cop and is valid for 2 days in a row. If you are most interested in figures then the park is the best option and doable in 3-4 hours. If you... More

Don't miss this extraordinary collection if statues dating from 1000BC to 700AD that no one seems to know much about. Very moving and majestic, poised by tombs, with potential for lots of wonderful interpretations.

If you only have time for one "statue/figures" visit, this is the one. Easy to walk around and takes 3-4 hours.

Hundreds of statues with animal, wacky features are spread along hills surrounding San Agustin. the town per se has a friendly population of campesinos and indigenous, many of them will happily guide you by walk or by horse (very popular option also for the less experts, but look around and choose horses that appear in good conditions and well fed..)...

Gives you a perfect overview of the myths of San Agustin and the views from the parc are amazing. It's a bit hard to go the steps but it's so worth it....

I really enjoyed my visit to this park. I had an incredible guide named Dubiel who took m around the site for 3-4 hours and gave a detailed explanation of the statues. It is unlike any site I have ever visited and well worth the trip. It is also a nice 30 min walk from the town

A lovely archaelogical site, really well organized & very easy to wander round in 2 or 3 hours as all the main sites are close to each other, with well maintained paths. The sites are beautiful, amazingly intact/restored statues which you can see from close up in their original settings. Quite breathtaking & when I was there around the middle... More

Short intro: The San Agustin area consists of 3 archeological sites. The first, and for me most impressive, is this main park, located just outside of the village. It's a 40 minute walk to get there, or take a taxi. You can visit this by yourself, on foot, in a couple of hours. Your ticket will also grant access to... More
