Recommend carrying bottled water and apply enough sunscreen. If possible bring a hat or umbrella to protect yourself from the Sun during walks.View original

The Park offers many activities for children and adults, as well as some end (attractions). There are a variety of restaurants, squares with typical, sweet food, hormigas culonas, walks and panoramic views of the pipes of the chicamocha. Super Plan! that if much water, comfortable shoes if they are sports better, must walk enough to reach the cutest!View original
Historic place worthy to visit. You would spend the whole day there in between the pool area and the other sections of the park. Incredible view. Do not forget the spectacular cable car.
I would give five stars because the view is amazing. The downside is that it is very touristic and entrance fee is high. Stop there on your way to Bucaramanga.
The park has no concept whatsoever. There are just some restaurants on a path and some birds in cages which are in a terrible condition (e.g.: 3 parrots in a 2x1x1m cage). Don't come here.
Overpriced for the teleferrico. There are so much attractions that it is impossible to cover in 1 day.
Un sitio increible
