Straits of the Magdalena

The Magdalena River, the most important of Colombia, crosses the country along 1,500 kilometres from south to north before emptying into the Caribbean Sea can be seen in the southern Huila with a width not exceeding 3 meters. Up there, the narrow banks of the Magdalena are reached after a half hour drive from San Agustin, on the road leading to the town of Obando.


Strolling through the San Agustín Archaeological Park and visiting the site where the Magdalena River does not exceed 3 meters in width are some plans for those visiting the southern part of the department of Huila.
