  • It is a very nice bridge that allows to see the Cauca River. I recommend you go by motorcycle taxi. Take it in the main square and "Racing" a little charge a sum of money for the trip and return. They expect it before crossing the bridge so that one passes walking and waiting more or less an hour for you to take you back. I do not recommend to go by car, there is heavy traffic and motortaxi pudes quiet walk without thinking about the safety of your vehicle. Is a very beautiful experience to cross it on foot and no truck, especially if range from 5 to 6 pm to see fall sunset I recommend! In addition than the heat low, enjoys a cool breeze and you can see the bridge illuminated at night.

  • Has an excellent view, however, I seems that should have more points of information or guides tourist that do a description of what is this monument national, this would fill of sustenance it visit.

  • You can get the bridge after 20 minutes driving by car. It is beautifull, it is nice to cross it by foot, take some photos and after that enjoy an ice cream.
