National Park Nature / Park
Explore Toro Toro National Park, a small protected area in the Bolivian Andes. Hike through mountains and deep canyons, some of which become completely inaccessible in the rainy season. The park is mostly known for its 2,500 dinosaur footprints from the Cretaceous period, but you can also view interesting rock formations, vast caverns, and other stunning natural landscapes. Descend 800 steps into Vergel Canyon, a spot filled with lush greenery, emerald pools, and cascading waterfalls. Along the way you may see fossils and dinosaur bone fragments, or spot colorful parakeets and macaws. Put Toro Toro National Park and other Cochabamba attractions into our Cochabamba travel itinerary maker, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • Second time staying in this beautiful park where there are small wonders to see. The price of access to the Park to more than triple in three years (35 BS 100 Bs) and the Organization of "the House of Argentine" is really disastrous. Each tour requires a guide (even if you just want to stroll around the city) so that it is impossible to get out of the city alone. A little draconian... more each trip is rather expensive and it is up to us to find other tourists to share costs, do not on casa de los past to help you plan your trip! Add that we had a guide who only spoke very little Spanish on our trip to the Vergel. This gentleman should be very interesting, but few tourists speak Quechua. It's a shame because he was very friendly and we had to get the information we want on the internet... On the other hand, the city of Itas is superb, no less beautiful cave and the really splendid canyon! For budget high enough.

  • I booked a 2-day trip in the Toro-Toro of Cochabamba from. We started in the morning at 6: 00 in the private minibus towards national park. The trip takes 4-5 hours. Arrived in the Park must register and then travels with a guide around. We were first in Canyon near the waterfall and then to the Mirador and the Dino tracks. The landscape is incredibly beautiful, but you should be sure-footed as it goes partially over loose stones. You should have enough to drink. On the second day, we are to the cave of Umajalanta and ran with a helmet with a light in the darkness. It was incredibly beautiful. The National Park is highly recommended and if you have time you can spend 4 days there also!

  • Our crush of the Bolivia. This little-known natural park of classic tours is a real jewel landscapes both in appearance than recreational. Firstly, arriving, you will fall under the charm of the village of ToroToro because small, clean, quiet and with a pretty little central square where you easily meet some tourists who came into groups of 6 to the proposed activities. These mainly consist in 4 loops of half-days where it is possible to jump between the rocks to see cave paintings, from Spelunking among the stalactites, play the paleontologists in herbs with thousands of marine fossils or even to follow in the footsteps of dinosaurs down the canyon of Vergel (, notice of several backpackers) much more beautiful than that of Colcha) where you can swim under waterfalls while admiring the condors soar above and parrots sing. As well, the park entrance is cheap (30 B / pers.), there is a free campsite in the village (otherwise the hostals accept that you dry your tent in their gardens and use their showers/toilets for 20 B / tent) and the price of the guide that is ridiculous if you are a group of 6 people. !! Ask to have Victor as a guide

  • The hidden gem of Bolivia. Beautiful scenery, deep and exciting cave adventures, dinosaurs, friendly locals, fantastic hiking, great food and dinosaur footprints! Loved it!
  • Beautiful scenery and amazing views of the stars. A bit annoying that you have to go with a guide, especially as our guide wasn't the most helpful, and its difficult to get to. You need at least 2 nights to be able to see anything, because you might end up waiting for a while in the tour office for a group or your guide.
  • Magnificent views. Interesting things to do. Charming village. Great hikes and possibility to do some speleology too. Discover some prehistoric fossiles and dinosaur footsteps on the way.
  • Please everyone visit this supercute town and amazing park. Especially the canyon tour!
  • Amazing experience with CITUR tours in Toro Toro. The landscape is amazing!! You can see part of the history of the earth in the mountains that show layers of the earth. The cave is beautiful! Loved the challenge! The trecks through the zone and the canyon are gorgeous and exhausting, but worth it all the way!

Where to stay in Cochabamba

You can find dozens of inexpensive hotels and budget-friendly hostels between the main bus terminal and the city center in Cochabamba. The only drawback to staying in that area is that some of its side streets can be unsafe late at night, so choose carefully if you plan to go out after dark. Most foreign visitors choose to stay at one of the hotels near the main city square, where you can take advantage of good eating options that are relatively difficult to find elsewhere in town.
