“The Grand Canyon of Santander”

Parque Nacional de Chicamocha
Ranked #2 of 68 things to do in Bucaramanga
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed May 3, 2014

The Parque Nacional has developed over the years into a great tourist attraction. Ride the cable car up across the Canyon to the park at the top where one may visit a small 'village' of typical houses and sample local delicacies.
The view from the top is breathtaking and the adventurous can ride a zip line. Explore the surrounding area on the Mesa de Los Santos and see many beautiful views including 'el Capitan' where there is a terrific Indian face in the sandstone cliff and more terrific views.

I you are in the area, you must... MUST go to this nature wonder and magnificent canyon. The views are great and the ride along the canyons cable car is even better.

If you have time and dare to do it, I'd recommend you to go gliding and see the magnificent view from the clouds! It's quite an experience... no doubt!

One of the best parks we ve been to. Activity prices are reasonable. Try quad bikes and buggies. Make sure to take a camera with you.

It is a beautiful national park indeed; where you can take nice photos of the valley. Worth your while to spend the day to take this trip.

Extreme activities can also be done so that the whole family enjoys the trip - the radical swing set is at the top of my list!!

There is also a good restaurant under the rocks with a nice view and a BIG shadow where you can have a good meal - nothing spectacular - and rest a bit!

This park is well-worth a visit as the views are incredible and there are lots of activities for everyone. However I was shocked at the appalling conditions the birds in their 'ostrich' park are kept in - tiny cages crammed full of beautiful exotic birds and a tiny enclosure for the ostriches. Check out most of the park but don't pay to see the birds.
