Overview

Los Idolos is a nice boulder area, very close to Neiva. Its made of sedimentary rock with a characteristic set of holes on the layer of the sediments. The routes are not very high but you climb over the water. From there you can go and explore the canyon too, which takes about 1 h.
There are more than 20 routes, and still place to put new ones.

Getting There

From Neiva you can take a bus to Palermo which is only 25 minutes away. In palermo you ask for directions to los Idolos. They will guide you to a canal that irrigates rice crops. You just have to follow that canal until you cross the Tune river. The place is just above the bridge, 300m on the left margin of the river.
