Duration: 4-5 hours.
Today we can explore the surroundings of San Agustín on a mountain bike tour of approximately 17 kilometers, visiting the archaeological sites of La Pelota, El Purutal, El Tablón and La Chaquira. The path is very entertaining: we will cross dirt passes, a trail, grass, and even a stream… it is quite a challenge for those who enjoy steep and challenging roads! Although there are no long ascents, there are short sections that are quite steep where we can put our endurance to test.
We will pass by coffee plantations, sugar mills and fields of fruit trees, and upon arriving at the archaeological sites of La Pelota and El Purutal, we will be able to enjoy a delicious freshly pressed orange juice or energizing Colombian coffee. If we are lucky to find one working, we will visit an authentic sugar mill where we can learn more about this sweet Colombian wonder. Then we will arrive at La Chaquira, an archaeological site that has a spectacular view over the Magdalena river canyon. If we haven't had enough after all of this, we can also visit the archaeological site of El Tablón, on our way back to San Agustín.
