San Jose del Guaviare is in a privileged place, between 3 ecosystems, which makes it a unique place that offers everything for everyone. It’s formed by the Amazon, La Orinoquia, and the Escudo Guayanés. La Serranía de La Lindosa is the home of ancestral paintings and civilizations, and the natural connection with La Sierra de La Macarena.

ARRIVAL TO SAN JOSÉ AND VISIT TO PUERTA DE ORIÓN - CAVERNA RUPÍCOLA.
In this day, we will arrive to San José, a place known as “the Chiribiquete door”, where the forest, the plain and the Escudo Guayanés find each other to form a territory full of history, ancestral paintings, where nature and the ancient are one.
We will arrive to Puerta de Orión, a set of rocky formations that build the Escudo Guayanés. Here you will see how
the forms of nature tickle your senses to show figures in rocks, full of live and history. It is known as Puerta de Orión because here you can watch, as the tale tells, the constellation of Orion.
