If you arrive early and see the park in the afternoon, then one day is enough. I didn't do the jeep tour, but I walked to the places that were included on the horseback riding tour and didn't find them to be very interesting. It's probably enough just to visit the park. That being said if you have been to archeological sites in Mexico or Central America or Peru, you might find this site to be a bit of a disappointment. If you are spending a month in Colombia, it might be worth seeing but if you are just spending a few weeks, I wouldn't bother.

Two days in San Agustin is enough, visit the parque, take a tour in jeep and one on horseback.
We stayed in Finco El Maco and are quite satisfied.

you come here to see the ancient statues and some basic tombs. there aren't any ruins per se. the walk around the park is worth it in itself, some great views of the countryside and the statues themselves are interesting especially when you consider their age

who'd have known that ancient pre-colombians played baseball and were harassed by vampires ;-)

Took a 3-day trip here from Popayan, and had a great time. Worth spending a full day in the archeological park, and the surrounding countryside, towns and archeological sites are worth seeing too.

Monoliths and other archaeological remains are unique and monumental. Much like Peru and Mexico, but works in the San Agustín Archaeological Park are more personalized, community works that we see in other cultures.
The park is a great extension with good roads to travel.
The atmosphere inside the park is very quiet and relaxed.
