San José del Guaviare in detail
Flota La Macarena connects San José to Villavicencio (COP$49,500, six hours) and Bogotá (COP$69,500, nine hours) from its tiny bus terminal at the edge of downtown.
It's possible to take a 4x4 to La Macarena (COP$80,000, seven hours) from here too, with departures on Tuesday, Friday and Saturday. Ask at the tourist information office.
There's a small airport just north of the town center with a few flights a week to Bogotá on Satena.
