Experiencia, genial, los paisajes son hermosos, los deportes extremos geniales,la comida en el parque muy buena, abstenerse de llevar personas con miedos a las alturas o vertigo para evitar sofocos, e... more »Experience, great, the landscapes are beautiful, great extreme sports, the food in the Park good, refrain from taking people with fears to the heights or dizziness to avoid hot flashes, the cable car ride is not good for them, or go by land. Use enough sunscreen and hats for Sun, and good physical condition to climb. Very good experienceView original

Ich bin mit der Vorstellung in den Park gegangen einen Naturpark vorzufinden, aber vermutlich habe ich mich dahingehend zuwenig informiert. Der Park ist gut mit den öffentlichen Bussen zu erreichen. A... more »I went with the introduction in the Park to find a nature park, but probably I have informed me that not enough. The Park is easily accessible by local buses. At the Park, you have super views of the surrounding mountains and valleys. You should worry already when buying the tickets, because prices vary greatly about what you want to do (25,000 COP only entry - 70,000 COP with all attractions). To the park itself, very nice staff, clean and tidy, you can report anything negative in factView 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
