San Agustin was one of our main destinations in Colombia, and we were not disappointed. The park was everything we hoped it would be - beautiful, interesting, memorable, and enlightening. The statues are an extraordinary display of gods, humans, animals and brings to light the...More

If you visit via Popayan you are in for a long and slow crawl along the atrocious 'highway' crossing the Purace paramo. In dry conditions the views are great but it'll likely be wet and cloudy and the slowest 100kms of your life. But it's...More

these carved stones are amazing. Some are very tall and the carving on a lot of them is very detailed. Not only are they in the park but widespread over a large area near here. San Agustin is small but there are plenty of hotels/hostels...More

This park is excellently laid out and a lovely experience. Wear comfy shoes, bring sun screen and mossie repellent or you will get bitten alive, as I did! We had a guide called Miguel who was excellent. There are lockers (free) to store your extra...More
