Estrecho del Magdalena, San Agustin

4.5
#3 of 8 in Things to do in San Agustin
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 Strait of Magdalena is a perfect place to connect again with nature and see a marvel of no artificial engineering. The reduction of the runway is amazing and stone carved by the river course is beautiful.

  • Free tour, if you pass in the corner, nothing exceptional. However the craft is really cheap, for example 1000 pesos for a bracelet or 3000 a nice keychain.

  • I think that it is places what to know since the rock formation that looks lets see Magdalena as not seen anywhere in colombia. The visit is short, it will not take you long time

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.
