  • A good alternative to the excursion riding that usually offer in St. Augustine is come here walking. Go from San Agustin to the Italian restaurant Da Ugo 2 km from St. Augustine by the narrow Via de Magdalena, have a drink and Doña Natalia requests the owner a copy of the best map of the area that has edited it and still completing your walking route.

  • Good place of difficult access by car (4 x 4 only). The site I liked due to the diferenncia of the other lots since it connects a great visual on the magdalena and some statues that were clearly there for any reason related to their location.

  • Really neat but seems like the place could use more entertainment and maintenance. Park guides would also be helpful along with more signage.
  • Absolutely unique remains of incredibly talented and brave Sculptors people of San Agustín. The landscape is breathtaking. Please take care of that treasure. We saw people jumping of the 4000 yo sculptures to take (ridiculous) selfies, it's horrifying.
  • great place with infrastructure, you can visit the Chaquira and also enjoy an amazing view.
  • The views are amazing but the stones are boring
  • The hike to get there is really easy, the entrance is free and you get to see some archeological remains and beautiful scenery as well. I wouldn't say it is a must place to visit but of you have time in San agustin then definitely pay a visit!

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.
