  • The place is pretty cool. It has life-size replicas of dinosaurs. Vale also make the guided tour to the small museum which is within the Park. And still have a beautiful panoramic view of the city of Sucre.

  • Although the footprints can already be seen from above it is a good idea to go down and see them from closer. A must do for dino fans. The original sized models of dinosaurs are nice and the museum an...  more »
  • It is the site with traces of dinosaurs in the world, since it contains more than 5,000 different species of dinosaur footprints. This Park was discovered near a factory of cement in the city of Sucre, we were surprised to get off and be so close to the tracks, and bring us home photos of this great Museum... is recommended to go with sunscreen, glasses, sports shoes and by so-called willing to respect and not to damage this beautiful and historical place...

  • Loved it. Awesome experience. Suggest doing the 1pm tour when the sun is best located to see the dinosaur footprints.
  • It's the famous plate that has many dinasour tracks on it. Do be careful on tour timings otherwise you might not get to get a close up look. (9am and 1am the day I went) would have preferred if there were more English description plates but none the less it was beautiful if your into this stuff. Sad though that wall is slowly breaking through time.
  • Spent about 40 mins there, were too late for the tour to the wall so didn't see the footprints. The huge sculpture is pretty impressive, it's a bit of a laugh for some selfies with the t rex. Don't go out of your way if you're right for time. Getting the number 4 bus for 1.5 boliviano to the park is a bit of fun!
  • It's fun a bit. Taxi for 3 people from the csntre was 20 pesos total.
  • 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.

Where to stay in Sucre

With building restrictions in place for decades, the city of Sucre has developed a little differently than most other cities on the continent. However, the touristic appeal of Sucre has driven up demand for accommodations--now slotted in old, colonial-era buildings rather than new-build high-rises. This development ethos has worked well, with lodgings in Sucre's center among the most comfortable and characterful in the country. Exclusive options cluster around the town's prettiest plazas, with grand rooms and fine-dining restaurants. Budget-minded visitors should explore the range of posadas (guesthouses), set in modest formerly residential buildings on the town's side streets.
