POPAYAN – ISNOS – SAN AGUSTIN – TATACOA DESERT


Located in southwestern Colombia in the heart of the Andes Mountains, the San Agustín Archaeological Park houses the oldest remains of the South American continent. Listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1995, the park contains a collection of sculptures and religious monuments of a mysterious and little-known civilization. Its dating is not yet unanimously accepted by researchers.

Nearby, the Tatacoa Desert is the second largest desert in Colombia. Very rich in fossils dating back millions of years, you will be amazed by its colours ranging from ochre to grey.
