Duration: 4 hours.
Today we can enjoy the most famous ride of San Agustín led by an expert local guide who will take us through a circuit that runs through four archaeological sites: we will cross the rural area of the town to arrive first at La Pelota, where we can see three statues
located very close from where they were originally found, as well as vestiges of an original mound. A few meters from there is El Purutal, where there are four more statues of which two still retain the original coloration that is believed to have been characteristic
of many other monoliths in the area. Following this, we will continue to El Tablón, an archaeological site where five statues of approximately 2 meters classified as female
are exhibited, and where there is a small ethnographic museum organized by the residents of El Tablón township. We will then go to La Chaquira, an archaeological site where there are different human and animal figures carved into volcanic stone that look towards
the impressive Magdalena river canyon, one of the most spectacular views that can be seen in San Agustín. To get to El Tablón we will walk less than 15 minutes, while to get to La Chaquira we will descend a hill on foot in less than half an hour, although the ascent back takes about 1 hour.
