Parque Gondava, Villa de Leyva

3.1
#8 of 22 in Theme Parks in Colombia
Venture back to the prehistoric at Parque Gondava. Known as the "valley of the dinosaurs" this amusement park features scale replicas of extinct species, the largest of which is a 14 m (45.9 ft) tall Brachiosaurus. The inspiration for the site comes from the high levels of fossils from the Cretaceous period found in the Villa de Leyva region. With both a boating and "prehistoric" lake, this park makes an ideal stop for families; while some elements may still be under construction, children have plenty to climb, touch, and see here.

    I met him a couple of years ago and apparently want to carry it as a dinosaur: extinction. It is impaired, there is no indication of the route, should make travel asking which is crossed by the front. There are many areas closed due to erosion, but not warn it therefore ends up being misleading. There is no what they offer in the restaurant; There is only available entrees, none typical but the place is not just to go to lunch. Hopefully rescue it so worthwhile

    I went with my partner to the Park thinking it was the paleontological, we hired a car service from the plaza of Villa de Leyva to Park (a distance of 4-5 Km), which gained us 45 pesos (including the value of the entrance to the Park). When we arrived and we started the tour with a guide, we realized that it was only the representation of dinosaurs in mannequins. This plan is more for kids, feel that we lost the silver.

    I think q had a fossil or something more striking. Guides have knowledge about the Park, kids is interesting and fun, but the truth is I do not like
