Updated: 28 January 2018
San Agustín Archaeological Park is one of Colombia’s most important archaeological sites and is located near the small town of San Agustín in the department of Huila. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and contains the largest collection of religious monuments and megalithic sculptures in Latin America. If you have an interest in Latin American culture and history then it’s a must-visit site in Colombia, so here’s a complete guide to exploring the park.

How to get to the San Agustín Archaeological Park

Getting to the park is easy once you’ve arrived in San Agustín itself – to get to the small town you will need to get a bus from Bogotá (which has direct routes to San Agustín) or get to Pitalito in Huila, where you can easily find a bus for the one-hour trip to the town. Alternatively, you can fly to Pitalito with Satena Airline, or to Huila’s capital, Neiva.
