This is tied for being popular when asking about tours. Just go. The packages seem priced a bit high in hotels, si I recommend just going and paying at gate. Great view. Top place to visit for sure.

Located only a short distance from Bucaramanga the park is not only accessible but is accessible once there. The gondola/cable car ride is highly recommended, as well as visiting the momument to Stanander history.

10 out 10. You must come here. Wonderful and breathtaking scenery. Great ride on the cable cars to go there if you are riding from la Mesa de los Santos. Food, adventure, picture taking. It has it all.
