Visit Isnos: Alto de los Ídolos, Alto de las Piedras & Mortiño
Today you’ll visit the fascinating archaeological sites of Alto de los Ídolos and Alto de las Piedras, stopping at the beautiful Mortiño waterfall en route between the two.
Morning pick up from your hotel and transfer approximately 40 minutes to the small rural town of Isnos. As Isnos, you’ll be met by a local guide (your English-speaking guide is there to act as translator and add supplementary information where she/he feels appropriate) and accompanied around Alto de los Ídolos and Alto de las Piedras. These sites are quieter than the San Agustín Archaeological Park but in our opinion, no less impressive. There are many well preserved tombs, some of which still display the colours of the original paintwork, and the sites are home to some of the largest stone figures found to date. Driving between the two parks affords you breath-taking views of the Colombian massif and there’ll be time for a stop at the beautiful Mortiño waterfall. Afterwards, return to your hotel in San Agustín.
Private tour. If you have already visited the San Agustín Archaeological Park, please bring the passport you were given at the site entrance with you and hold onto it for any other site visits you may have included in your itinerary.
