The real San Agustín is a park in southern Colombia, not too far from the Ecuadorean border. It’s a beautiful place to visit, with mysterious centuries-old statues created by a lost civilization. But, while San Agustín is wonderful to visit, it’s also a long way away – a 15-hour bus ride, in fact.
During our bike tours, we sometimes visit Bogotá’s own ‘San Agustin’: A collection of monument reproductions in a small park in the Santa Fe neighborhood.
No, it’s not exactly the same. But it is lots closer and easier to get to.
