Parque Gallineral, San Gil
(3.8/5 based on 360 reviews on the web)
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.

  • Nice park on the outskirt of san gil, but nothing to be excited about... I wouldn't pay the 6000pesos again... 
  • If you visit San Gil, the route through the Park is mandatory... the entrance is economical and is better to go with a guide (charged from 10 thousand pesos) to appreciate... There is a quiet, nice simple and with many things that see a good place to take beautiful pictures... very well maintained... It's worth the time.
