Who are we?
We tell you our story and the story of the parks
Who are we? Parques de Santander® is a new brand that was created to consolidate the tourism projects managed by the Chicamocha National Park Corporation, a non-profit organization that works for the socio-economic and tourism development of the region.
The Corporation was created on July 13, 2004 to administer the PANACHI Chicamocha National Park, a tourist complex, unique in Colombia, built in the highest part of the second deepest canyon in the world, The Chicamocha Canyon, in which we can find different attractions for all types of public and whose main attraction is its Cable car of 6300 meters that joins the table of the Saints with the Park.
The construction of this project was an initiative of the Government of Santander and the Bucaramanga Chamber of Commerce.
Subsequently, due to the undeniable tourist growth given by this park and as a complement to enjoy wetlands in the arid climate of the majestic canyon, the Chicamocha National Aquapark was created on September 26, 2014, consolidating the second phase of the largest tourist complex in Santander.
Thousands and thousands of tourists began to enjoy all the attractions of these two parks, which together with the beautiful scenery provided by the topography of the region turned it into a national and international tourist destination in a very short time.
A year later and in order to meet the demand of visitors who came to Santander motivated to know Panachi and the Aquapark, the idea of creating a tourist attraction for Bucaramanga and its metropolitan area, the third stage of our tourist complex, Cerro del Santísimo Park, was born., this was inaugurated on June 20, 2015, located at the highest point of the municipality of Floridablanca, whose main attractions are the Holy Sacrament, a sculpture of 37 meters high and a cable car that connects the monument with the Hacienda La Esperanza, a place full of history, where the first brewery in the country operated.
