  • It's fun to see the life size dinosaurs models. The tracks are only accessible during lunch time even when the concrete plant isn't working e.g. on Sundays. Charging 3 times the price for foreigners i...  more »
  • This park stands out from others who copy American style because it combines the gigantic statues outside, long up to 35 metres, with a magnificent scientific internal exposure that well explains the geological formation that did see dinosaur footprints,

  • The track are visible from outside the park if you have binoculars or a camera with a decent zoom, so there is no need to actually pay the fee to go in. At any rate, you can only get close to the trac...  more »

  • I wouldn't recommend this to everyone but if you like dinosaurs, geography or evolution this could interest you. I was pretty determined to go despite what people said. The tour can be painfully repetitive because the guide will explain many times how the footprints were preserved by layers over time. Very painful for those of you who aren't geologists.
  • Brilliant. If you like dinosaurs in the slightest then you will love this place; it's a real delight to stroll around all the life size models; make sure you check the website in advance if you wish to tour the footprint wall, likewise be careful of your visit time in regards to the gift shop too - we had to wait around for quite a while before we could purchase our souvenir t-shirts!
  • I went in thinking it might be a bit cheesy but actually really enjoyed seeing the foot prints up close and then having it brought to life with the to scale models. Our guide, Jose, was excellent. We took bus 'H' from out the front of the market, only $1.5 bob. You can also take the '4' bus from the same place.
  • The bad rating refers to the ridiculous parc with the (ugly and anatomically wrong) plastic dinosaurs and the tour guide to the dinosaur footsteps. The footsteps are really worth the visit! Go to the parc and see these amazing remains of the dinosaur age as long as they still exist! You have to take a guided tour(no extra cost) to be able to go near the footsteps. There are only two tours a day: at 12am and 1pm. Only at this time the shadow is perfect for seeing the footsteps perfectly. Don't expect anything from the guide. He will gather the group far away from the wall with the footsteps and tell you some basic facts, but won't tell you which footstep belongs to which dinosaur. Check Wikipedia before. Instead of conserving these impressive remains of the past and invest in a kind of cover for the wall with the footsteps the Bolivian government builded this ridiculous parc. It's a shame. Getting there: the cheapest and easiest way is with the micro no 4 from calle Junin (near Plaza 25 de Mayo) to the last stop at the cement factory. From there you see the signs to the parc. It's a five minutes walk.
  • Nice to see if you like dinosaurs, but the tour was a little underwhelming. Best to make sure to go for the daily 1pm tour down to the actual wall where you can see the footprints up close
