Tatacoa & San Agustin

San Agustin is one of the most important archaeological sites of Colombia, maybe even one of the most important sites of South America. There is still much to speculate about this pre-Colombian culture as this civilization left no written document behind. What has been found are the many stone figures in the form of important political and religious leaders with masks and figures in the form of honoured animals. The majority of the statues can be found in the Archaeological park close to the village of San Agustin and in the Archaeological Park of Isnos. All around San Agustin they have found statues and these are reconstructed on the place where they were found. An amazing activity in the area is a horse riding tour to visit several of these archaeological findings.

Another tourist attraction in the Huila department is the Tatacoa desert (Desierto Tatacoa). Officially we can´t speak about a desert as it is more a semi-desert due to the yearly rainfall, but the sand formations, the cactus vegetation and the fauna give your the idea to walk in an actual desert.

We offer a package of 4 days and 3 nights in which we combine the above mentioned destinations. This package is very well possible to do from Bogota, it is also possible to add national flights to and from Neiva or even Mocoa in the package. You cannot miss a visit to the famous archaeological park of San Agustin. Another activity that we offer within the package is the horse riding tour. A tour suitable for young and old, but if preferred other activities are possible. There are many things to see and do in the area of San Agustin. Another activity for example is the archaeological park of Isnos, white water rafting on the Magdalena River, trekking in the Paramo de Papas to the origin of the Magdalena river, visit the waterfalls and much more. A custom made program is of course one of the possibilities. It is also possible to combine this destination with other amazing destinations like Tierradentro.
