If you are looking for a free easy to get to site this is it. You can walk there in 30-45 min from the main square. Or we opted to take a motor taxi for $2,000 cop each and were there in 5 minutes max.
It is free to see the stone sculptures, which are covered in a bamboo canopy.
There is also a small museum that you can visit for $5,000 cop pp. our friend went in and told us that it was quite interesting and worth the $5,000. There is a collection of antique artifacts, musical instruments and photographs.
The site is well maintained and clean, but very basic. There are four stones on display with no information about them. There are two other free sites along this path to visit within walking distance. We recommend the app “mapsme” to help you find the other two sites. Or you can get a map from town.

Great location on top of a mountain. The hike can be challenging due to altitude and lots of stairs but the view from the top makes it totally worth it

We visited the site by ourselves walking from town. It's a steep hill down. It's a good combination with a visit to Chaquira.

Here are the only statues that have retained the (apparent) original paint as I was told...I would like to believe it but found it a little strange that it is only these that still have paint on them, out of the hundreds that were found...But do not let that distract you from the fact that these are indeed beautifully preserved statues and a bit different from the others

Great trip. Loved seeing the architectural park in San Agustin. Highly recommend that anyone who travels to Colombia, must visit this park. What a gem of archeological finds of a 5,000 year old people.

We came here with horse, this was our first stop.. The archaeological site of El Tablon located down the hill, is quite decending to get there. The three statues are fenced and free of addmission.

I know 7kCOP isn’t actually a lot of money but I couldn’t actually see where the money is going. The museum was only good because we had a guide talking to us about each object. The monuments are obviously fascinating, they have been moved from their original location! We visited another site for free and another for 3k where they hadn’t been moved?
We stopped off as part of our horse riding tour so it was fine enough but it was my least favourite of the three sites we visited...

Only 5 statues. A Couple very nice. We came on a second day - yoy can walk from town (or catch a taxi/collectivo up the hill). - then carried on to Chaquira.
There's a small museum which isn't worth it really. Just some old agricultural equipment with bad English translations

We walked 2 blocks down from our La Terraazas Hotel to flag down the local bus($.50each) with the El Tablon placard. After climbing out of town for 2km, it dropped us off at a dirt road on the top of the hill. Here we walked 1km down to the site entrance and proceeded 100 meter down a steep pasture to the stone shelter. One of the stones stood out at 7' high with excellent relief on both the front and back. Another smaller stone also had high relief.
Adjacent, was a small house with drinks(toilet available), and a small museum($2.75each) which we declined.
When regaining the dirt road, we now found 12 horses and a couple in a 4WD. These tours would progress through this rugged countryside with Spanish guides leading, allowing tourists to concentrate on the geometric coffee fields.
On the climb back to the paved road we were met by 2 English couples who had walked from town and were keen to proceed to the next site, La Chaquira, a further km down a very steep road.
We were happy we had good weather and were able to catch a local bus($.35) back.
