  • In ride the Guide led us to the Chaquira, saying it is an impressive carved stone next to a ravine. We got off the horse and went down a huge staircase that led to another staircase, "al final del cañon". That view of the landscape.

  • 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.
  • Nice view on the Magdalena river with almost any tourist
  • 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!
