  • A special place with a unique view super organized and with many options for couple families and swimming pools a little more simple but acceptable in the middle of everything! The beautiful landscapes

  • At the beginning I wasn't sure to visit it, but bring me a pleasant surprise. Facilities clean, extreme adventure sports, spectacular views of the Chicamocha canyon, a small museum, the beautiful water. The monument to the awesome santandareanidad! The only downside: no options for vegetarian food. The vegetarian dish which mentions the menu of one of the restaurants is the same ordinary salad dishes.

  • The Park is located in a Canyon and a stunning scenery that makes only compulsory visit. Since the road is complicated enough on curves, inclines and trucks, my recommendation is to go to the station of the cable car of Mesa de Los Santos and reach the park via this route. In addition it saves time and reduces risk, the ride is impressive and highly recommended. Arriving at the Park, there are activities several paras which have to buy cash and individual tickets. An important enhancement that need the Park is to facilitate this process. He could sell all inclusive options or the chance to choose the options you wish and pay them all at once. Reach the lookout 360 is interesting and impressive, but (put food) restaurant that has is quite basic and messy. A place so unique, is definitely something a lot better. The monument to the santanderianidad worth reading his story. Highly recommended. I didn't have the opportunity to go to the aqua park.

  • 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
