Very different from any other south american archaeological park. We enjoyed it very much. Go rafting in the morning and do the park in the afternoon when is colder.

I wasn't sure whether the statues of San Agustin would be worth the side trip, but they were! The park is great and full of lots of information. The museum was closed when we were there, but I felt that the park was sufficient even without the museum.

The set up was really neat, gorgeous pathways and very put together. Yet, they raised the prices to get tourists to go see more of the park and to fund the new museum which we couldn't visit. If you have any sort of student id you get in half price.

As the title suggests, this is the reason for going to San Agustin. It is not only interesting but also a very beautiful park.

I enjoyed just walking around the park as much as the statutes. It has large open grassy spaces with trees for shade. It also has bamboo structures where you can sit down and enjoy your lunch or just admire the surrounding views. The place is well spaced out so expect to do quite a lot of walking- wear comfortable shoes and bring lots of sunscreen if hot! Expect to spend 2-3 hours there.

You can get there by bus (1000 pesos March 2013), walk (3kms uphill) or by taxi.

I do not think you need a tour of this site as there a numerous placards with information in both Spanish and English.

I suggest that if it is a nice day take a picnic lunch with you and enjoy the large open spaces or bamboo structures.

I spent a week in San Agustin. It's one of the most beautiful places I've seen. The archaeological park is well kept and clean, with walks through the woods from site to site. Along the way you see interesting vegetation, including orchids and other parasitic plants growing on the trees. Each site has information in Spanish explaining the statues. I also took a jeep tour another day and saw some other sites and some magnificent waterfalls. Horseback riding is also available. San Agustin itself is a charming town and the people were very friendly and helpful.
