TOUR FROM BOGOTA TO SAN AGUSTIN ARCHALOGICAL PARK, HUILA, COLOMBIA
¿ Why is this tour interesting?
San Agustin Archaeological Park is one of the places declared as World Heritage by UNESCO. Visiting it through us during holidays, on a weekend, or whenever you want to, it will be an unforgettable experience. It is a marvelous place full of History and mystery. The culture that made these thousands of amazing statues disappeared without leaving a trace. San Agustin probably was a huge religious center where warriors, political and religious leaders from hundreds of years ago from different places of North and South America were transport to be buried. This is why the found graves were usually full of treasures. This tour can be taken accompanied by one of our guides, using either public or private transportation.
