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.

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.

  • It is easy to reach from Cochabamba Torotoro, since constantly and from 5 am they come out Av Republic minibuses that cost 35bs. After 4 pm and media arrive at the village, which has large number of accommodations and dining rooms, with everything you need for a stay except banks or ATMs. The main attraction of the Park are a series of circuits that you can walk only with a guide company (costs from 120bs, depending on the circuit, which can be divided among several people, in my case did a group of 7) plus the payment of a general admission (50bs each). Unfortunately no I can bring much about these attractions because of a bad experience I want to share with you so that you do not run the same as us. We arrived past noon and had time only for a short circuit so we chose the orchard and the Canyon, which are the simplest and take just a few hours. Just left of the agency it started to rain. Despite the rain, the guide us led towards the canon, to the time of arrive, us gave to understand that should wait to stop it rain for return, because this caused the grown of the river preventing the road-the guide only spoke quechua, therefore was very difficult communicate us with the. However, the rain did not stop. After a long time looking for a place where minimally shelter because we were soaked and ice cream. The National Park does not have a record of visitors entering and leaving the circuit so nobody was aware that we had not been able to return. They spent hours until almost miracle came a message from the mobile phone of the Guide (because don't have any communication system) and a group of Rangers came to rescue us early in the morning. Probably would have been a good experience of not be by the storm, but my recommendation is that in case of rain not take none of those circuits. Learned to the day following that something similar had last in the caverns, much more dangerous since to the flood is not is possible out of no way. The guides are not properly prepared and national park has the minimum security that is required.

  • 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.
  • 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!
  • One of the highlights of my trip to Bolivia
  • Super
