#1 of 7 in Parks in Cochabamba
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.

    Great national park, with a choice of interesting excursions (possible to stay there at least 2/3 days). The canyon and the cave are worth. Not distorted by tourism, the small village is autenthique and the people are very friendly! Attention, the price of the Park has increased (100bs) and there is no bank in the village, plan to change!

    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.

    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.
