    It is a magical place with a great view on the Magdalena river. Interesting petroglyphs of animals and anthropomorphic representations. 4 km from Augustine. From there you can hire service 4 x 4 that take you to the major archaeological sites, including La Chaquira.

    Mound of carved stones which can be reached by a footpath that leads to three points of view. The sculptures, although valuable, were left in nature, which gives more charm.

    This site has been made available for the eponymous cut stone, but it is especially the landscape that's worth it, with beautiful views on the canyon of the Rio Magdalena and two beautiful waterfalls

    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.

    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.
