  • I personally found very interesting visit. Well, it's not every day we can see traces of dinosaurs, and even less so! Go there directly collectivos (if you're in a hurry) Attention to see the traces of loan, only visits to 12: 00 and 13: 00

  • I went with my adult friend and we had an absolute blast! The park is informative (though more of just a base for viewing the "dinosaur dancefloor" rockface it overlooks) and has a bunch of life size ...  more »

  • A Family Fun Day awaits here at Jurassic Park. Make sure to get the pass that allows you to take pictures. A fun day discovering an ancient world and learning how it has impacted our Earth. Neat facts that the tour guide will explain, and life size skeletons makes these animals come to life. Make sure you book the specific times at 12pm and 2pm so you can go down to the wall of fossil footprints and see it up close.
  • Get the bus from the main square at 11am to arrive in time for the best tour of the day. Great English speaking guide and interesting displays to enhance the experience and understanding. Absolute bargain!
  • A great place! Free guide, dinosaur footprints and models, and it's all quite cheap (30 Bolivians for foreigners). Get there with a bus from the main plaza (15 Bolivians both ways)
  • Just for information: the tours of the footsteps are at midday and 1pm (not 2pm, as a previous review said) and you must wear proper shoes, not sandals or flip flops. There is a shuttle bus between the park and the 25 de Mayo central square, with the timetable in the attached photo accurate as of 15th April 2018. The exact pickup location is outside of the Catedral Metropolitana and the bus is a double decker sightseeing bus with big pictures of dinosaurs on it!
  • Where else can you get inches from a dinosaur footprint in the clay? This isn't even petrified, but actual hard clay that is slowly eroding off the cliff. Be sure to arrive for the tours into the valley; the museum and other areas are barely worth the visit otherwise. Children not permitted below age ten, although that may change, because the valley is an active quarry site.
