San Gil Getting There

BY PLANE

There's no airport in San Gil, the closest one is in Bucaramanga, but that is 2 hours away. Your best option, wherever you come from, is the bus.

BY LAND

There are three bus terminals for a 50.000 people city!

The main one is the Intercity Bus Terminal 3 kms west of downtown on the road to Bogota. Some of the local buses stop there or you can take a taxi (4.000 or 5.000 pesos from the city center). The Intercity Terminal is where you take the bus to Bogota (40.000 pesos, 7 hours), Bucaramanga (20.000 pesos, 2 and 1/2 hours), Santa Marta (60.000 Pesos, 13 hours), Barranquilla (70.000 Pesos, 15 hours), Medellin (65.000 Pesos, 11 hours) and Cucuta (40.000 Pesos, 9 hours). There are also buses that should take you to Villa de Leyva, a bit more than 2 hours away from San Gil.

The local Bus Terminal allows you to go to Curiti, Barichara, Guane, Charala. It is located on Calle 15 with Carrera 10. All tickets are between 2.000 to 4.000 Pesos and buses run with a frequency of 15 to 30 minutes. If you go to Barichara, take an early bus as it can get tricky to come back in the late afternoon.

The other Bus Terminal is the Cotrasangil Bus Terminal that deserves Bucaramanga (15.000 Pesos, 2 hours) via Parque Nacional de Chicamocha. There are buses every 30 minutes until 7:30pm.

When you book an activity from an hostel (rafting, paragliding...) they will take a commission of 10 to 20%, so you'd better book it directly with the tour operators!
