Favorite thing: The only thing that was disturbing was that the sites are too well 'maintained'! The sculptures stand in a clearing with no vegetation. So the place around the monuments looks less wild and less magic. I don't know if they have cut trees to present this 'serene' touristic ambient but I'd prefer it the way it was when found. Sorry if I do wrong to the authorities because on the other hand travelling in this country I have been pleasantly surprised at the ecological conscience of people. I met a lot who had a clear mind and a warm heart and tried to do their best for preservation. I saw a lot of mountain slopes proudly rolling up and down their green beauty. The country is yet unspoilt at a great extent. I hope it will be protected.
Favorite thing: Even if you're not an archeology buff like myself, San Agustin offers several attractive hikes and beautiful natural spots nearby. From a walk to the actual Archeological park to the so called Annillo Turisitco. This area of Colombia is one of the most beautiful areas in the country!
Fondest memory: Don't underestimate the town itself. The town offers a very traditional setting with Spanish and colonial architecture.
