"San Gil" San Gil by MalenaN

San Gil Travel Guide: 30 reviews and 87 photos

Many tourists come to San Gil to do outdoor activities. There are plenty of exciting sports to choose among, like rafting, paragliding, bungyjumping, horseback riding, caving, kayaking, rappelling, hiking and climbing.

San Gil is a pleasant town, and with so many exiting things to do it is easy to stay longer than you intended to. I had already stayed longer than I planed to in Venezuela and didn’t want to skip any of the destinations in front of me, so after three nights in San Gil I moved on, but I could easily have stayed longer. Besides all the outdoor activities San Gil has got some nice colonial houses, a beautiful park and a nice central square. San Gil is also near to the lovely small colonial town Barichara.

    The hostel must have been nice, also the main square, and outdoor, San Gil looks like a must visit in Colombia

    San Gil must be a great place for outdoor activities and exhilarating sports. Tour to the Cueva del Indios sounds like a great adventure. I liked Parque El Gallineral as well!

    I liked your Cueva del Indios tip. Sounds like a very interesting and adventurous visit. Also Barichara looks like a beautiful town.
