  • We did the tour riding that included going to La Chaquira. The site as such is very nice, but they have it abandoned in olo concerning security, the majority of the steps (and there are many) are in bad condition (even there are many without his step) which represents a danger to visitors. There is a person who manufactures replicas of statues in stone at affordable prices (highly recommended)

  • The beadwork as such is a carved stone which I believe does not warrant the translocation involving to reach it, however the view of the Canyon of the River Magdalena is very cute. Waterfalls that beautify the landscape can be seen. Reach the beadwork and the viewpoint they imply a very strenuous hike for many, it is important to bring liquid to hydrate.

  • The ride for me, worth more by the landscape by the archaeological part. However is precious. Always offer tours on horseback that can get more expensive and require all day, I had almost time, then rent a moto-taxi and charging me 22 for taking me from the village to the beadwork and then to the ball and then to the hotel's return, it is a road that does not fit a car but a bike if , if moto does not spend the money on the horse, and go on a motorcycle. :)

  • 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!
  • Mystical place.
  • Very close to St. Augustine the Chaquira, is approximately some four kms of road to the beadwork is a place with statues in stone called the bulletin board where there is a small ethnographic museum, travel to this beautiful place is in the middle of nature, perfect for hiking. Once you reach the beads go down a few steps to a vantage point where you see the beautiful landscape of the Canyon of the Magdalena.

  • The walk more strenuous short-travel by St. Augustine. But the view is worthwhile. Fully the penalty

  • Statues as pre-Columbian time. If possible visit with a horse ride is very romantic
