Estrecho del Magdalena, San Agustin

(110 reviews on the web)
Outdoor Activity
Observe the sculpting power of a fast river current at Estrecho del Magdalena. Here the Magdalena River surges through a small pass between the rocks, leaving very visible signs of erosion in its wake and sculpting formations over time. Take in the scenery as you listen to water crashing against the rocks. A statue of the virgin Mary sits perched up on a cliff observing the forces of nature. Bring your own refreshments, as there are no amenities here, and travel to nearby sites is via unpaved roads.

  • The Estrecho del Rio Magdalena is beautiful! The road isn't really good at the moment, you should drive with precaution as it has only one lane! The place is beautiful! You can walk through the rocks ...  more »
  • The visit is included in jeep tours to Alto de Los Idolos. It is beautiful and interesting but may be not worth separate drive. Anyway not far from San Agustin, reacable by taxi.  more »
  • This place is one of the stops when you take a 'jeep tour' (which is not a jeep, it's a van). The route the van takes I call the rip off tour. The driver takes you from place to place where they charg...  more »

  • Very beautiful setting. If you jump to the other side of the river, you will find a lot of butterflies.
  • One of those places where you can feel the power of nature: 2 meters wide, 19 meters deep; and a dangerous place, of course; don't came too close...!
  • Magic, is a place that is scarcely seen an once in a lifetime. The landscape of water, rocks, Earth and the sound of the water makes you reflect. There are small stalls selling souvenirs and varied food.

  • Excellent encounter with nature. A marvel. Income is uncovered road. In rainy season can be tricky the rise in car after visiting the Strait. Recommended!

  • Beautiful point of the Magdalena river where it passes through the Strait, a particular geological formation, is a spectacle. From St. Augustine is reachable via Obando, 10 km away. There are vans that come and go, to weekend chivas also make that stretch, to $3,000 the passage. The entrance to the Strait is free.
