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.

  • Access is difficult but worth it. The road is very beautiful and can be 4 x 4 and horseback. The Magdalena river passes through a narrow few metres where the water flow is impressive.

Where to stay in San Agustin

With local sites of immense archaeological interest, the tourist infrastructure of San Agustin is well developed, yet many of the town's main accommodations are in keeping with the pleasant look and modest size of the town's buildings. Hotels and hostels occupy neat villas on the town's outskirts, with sculpted grounds, comfortable rooms, and a family-friendly vibe. The main urban area provides plenty of budget-friendly options, primarily in the form of guesthouses in converted residential properties.
