We had a great time here, the cable car was amazing, the artwork like nothing else, super clean, lots to do and see. We were surprised at how hot it was, and perhaps wore the wrong clothing. Make sure you visit this place

Entering the parc only allows you to use the lift, but using any other attraction costs extra. Nothing special.

I was excited to visit Parque Chicamocha, which is situated high in the mountainous Santander of Colombia. As soon as I got off the bus, I could inhale the fresh air of this fantastic place and gaze at the blue sky and white clouds shading the mountains below. The sun was hard-working, shining brilliantly without stopping, but luckily, howling wind... More

Spent the day here, took teleferico from Mesa de los Campos to the Park.. Much to see and do, although the synthetic ice rink was unavailable on the day i went. Lots of friendly and helpful people enjoying themselves. Monument to Santanderianidad also told a good story, so it's not just attractions and fun. I think this place is definitely... More

The best natural attraction in Santander. Great place to take pictures and travel with your family or as a couple. Recommended for older kids, no for younger ones.

Absolutely amazing. You can go there by public transport, you can take the bus from San Gil o Bucaramanga. There is a cable car crossing the canyon. Also there is a point of view of 360 degrees on the hihguest point. Also there are restaurants, stores some atractions and entairtement. I recommend to visit with Friends or in family.

This is a large canyon probably as deep as the Grand Canyon, not as dramatic though. The cable car makes this visit worthwhile, the rest of the attractions are not worth the admission price. You can get better views just south on the roadside.
