After paying 5,000 pesos each for admission to this park (children are 3,000), I assumed that it would be in better condition and/or have something that is truly interesting.

We spent about an hour here walking around the paved path along the impressive Fonce River. With an admission price I would expect that that play equipment isn't left to go rotten and that the sad broken down cage of rather epic proportions should be either looking good or ripped down.

The Lonely Planet gives the drawcard here of seeing trees with long fronds of a grey moss hanging down but you can see this for free on the walk from Barichara to Guane and get much prettier nature in the nearby towns.

If I put a positive spin on it, you could mistake the still, decaying park as something magical out of a Gabriel Garcia Marquez story.

This is a nature park, a lot of birds, big river, gorgeous trees and a Well maintained path. Walking around with our family was great! I can imagine that you find this park boring when you seek hiking trails!

The park has a great affordable restaurant with the best ambiance in San Gil. The restaurant isn't listed in the Restaurant section so unable to post a review there.

Not worth the money paid to get in. Its quite a nice place to have a quick walk around, but I dont think they should charge you to get it at all, especially what we paid.
