The town of San Agustin and the city of Neiva are located in the Huila department of Colombia, an area of important geographical and historical significance full of pre-Columbian sites, artefacts and archaeology. Situated in the Magdalena River valley, locally termed the Estrecho del Magdalena, in the central south of the country, this region became a strategic point on the colonial trade route between Peru and Venezuela. History and anthropology buffs will delight in the many sites of national interest that proliferate in the region, especially the San Agustin Archaeological Park, designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1995. A particular blend of nature and mysticism abounds in this area, and anyone looking for something a little out of the ordinary will be more than satisfied with this unique region of Colombia.
