Compared to most national parks, Chicamocha is very different. It's more like a theme park set on a spectacular mountain top bordered by canyons on two sides. There's an impressive gondola that takes visitors down one canyon wall and up the other--with amazing views from both summits. And--quite unusually--there's a water park situated on a plateau overlooking the canyon by... More

The view from Chicamocha is breathtakingly beautiful. We took the cable car up to the top, which was approximately 35 minutes +/- to get there. When we arrived at the top, I was just simply awe struck on how beautiful it was there. The place was relaxing, sort of having a calming affect on you. There is also a sculpture... More

I traveled with my wife and kids (13, 8), you can access either in Mesa de Los Santos coming from Bucaramanga or by Pescadero Road coming from San Gil. Attractions are located by Pescadero Road. We loved the views and scenery, all attractions are really fun, there's an ostriches farm and attractions for kids under 12. The only thing we... More

This is a must day trip when in Bucaramanga...you can start either in Mesa de los Santos or in the other side of the Canyon by Pescadero Road. All attractions are by Pescadero. Scenery is breathtaking...many xtreme sports available like zip line, buggies, paragliding...there is a pool park and a pet farm.

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
