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.

  • We are alles to Torotoro in truffi (5 h 35 bolivianos), have found a hotel has 80 the double bowl and reserve 2 trips to the office of the Association of local guides (directly in the morning even at 7:30). It was easy to form groups of 6 or 7 tourists for each trip. The entrance to the Park is 100 Bowl for several days. We did canyon + dinosaur day 1: 100 bolivianos for the whole group (either 14 Bowl by people since it was 7). Roger, great guide nice and competent! Beautiful landscapes and impressive dino tracks. Day 2, we did Ciudad de Itas and the cave. 85 Bowl per person to 7 people. There is 1 h drive 4 × 4 with beautiful landscapes and the city site is also great with caves and various forms of animals created by erosion, and panoramas in unusual colors. Nice pictures to do. Herrería (I'm not sure of the spelling), our guide, gave many explanations and mastered his subject d to answer questions. Very nice too! After the lunch we have visit the cave, gigantic, but not so many stalagtites and moths that ca. C is the side the visit adventurer remembered with plenty of passages with ropes to descend a rock or passages or must be crawling, twisting... it is immersed in the underground atmosphere.

  • Drive from Cochabamba is more like 5 hours (and you might wait up to 2 hrs for the bus to fill) but it's totally worth it (there is private 4x4 hire from Sucre directly from the national park tour off...  more »
  • Explore the Umajalapanta cave, a place of reflection and much adventure, before you change any time until you reach the desired Putna. I was here because I am a person who likes to do sports so do much adventure on these trips. Everything has been kmuiy gratifcicante.

  • Not worth the trouble to get there from the main cities nearby. It's 4.5 hours on a rough dirt road from Cochabamba. Plus you have to wait up to 2 hours for the collectivo to fill up. No wifi, bank, ATM or pharmacy in town. Nature is pretty but nothing spectacular. Caves and canyon are beautiful and worth seeing if you come. Restaurants are limited and all serve the same basic menu. People are very friendly. Guides required for all visitors. 200 BS to enter park plus about 100 BS per half day tour.
  • 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.
  • The best geological park in Bolivia
  • 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.

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.
