Parque Gallineral, San Gil

(3.8/5 based on 400+ 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.

  • The park itself is suitable for a walk under the shade of trees, which are very beautiful. Unfortunately everywhere kitschy figurines and lamps banner stand, not so well liked us. The highlight is a beautiful pool in the middle of Park which is very clean and well kept. Here you can cool off and enjoy. Women with long hair must wear a swimming Cap here. These are available for 2000 pesos to buy there. A café and toilets are also available.
