Parque Gallineral, San Gil

3.8
#3 of 11 in Parks in Santander Department
The town's centerpiece, Parque Gallineral is an urban forest with a mystical atmosphere. Set on a triangular island between two rivers, the park offers 4 hectares (10 acres) of hiking routes through lush vegetation and across flowing rapids on attractive, secluded bridges. Adding much to the feel of the place, drooping arms of silvery moss hang from the branches of the trees, catching the light and creating an otherworldly sight. Relax after a long walk with a swim at the pool or grab some refreshments from the onsite restaurants and cafes.

    In the municipality of San Gil Santander is this beautiful park with splendid birds, magnificent ceibas, a beautiful bridge surrounded by colorful flowers, it really is a place to disconnect from the world and connect with nature. It is worth an afternoon there

    Very nice. Ed a place to disconnect. They offer guided tour which is worthwhile, has a cost of $12000, are carried out by people in the region who live on this. We had the fortune to visit with Mrs. Ofelia. So good-hearted woman. Trees and vegetation that exist in the Park are really beautiful and worth visiting it. Restaurant sold typical food is delicious and the people are very kind.

Where to stay in San Gil

Catering to domestic and international tourists, San Gil offers an impressive selection of budget and mid-range options in or near its central district. Since even basic hostels and guesthouses offer clean, spacious, and comfortable rooms, many people never consider staying at a higher-priced hotel. If you do need a bit more pampering during your stay, check into a hotel-resort on the edge of town.
