San Gil Things to See and Do

follow us

San Gil has much to offer those looking for an adrenaline rush: Raft or kayak on rivers with class 2 to 5 rapids. If you'd like something real different, there's hydrospeed, or body boarding down the Río Fonce. You can also rappel through waterfalls, or soar like a condor, paraglide from the Parque Nacional Chicamocha, crawl through some remarkable caves. Stroll and picnic in the botanical gardens of Parque Natural El Gallineral. For those who are more culture-minded, there are villages to check out, like Barichara with colonial architecture and a resident artist community, or Curití, where fique artisans practice their trade.
