Parque Gondava, Villa de Leyva

(3.3/5 based on 150+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • The park is beautiful, is nice to enjoy with the kinds and learn about dinosaurs. You can find good food and some attractions for adults . I would definitely go back.  more »
  • It is a place where apart from see the different dinosaurs, you do a nice walk. the guide is good to explain everything. It is recommended to take Lake take as long as is travel, blocker, or sunshade. Although it there as a kiosk to buy not use it asi since we saw it as it was at the end of the tour. It is a perfect plan for the family, children, couples, in general for all.

  • It did not meet the expectations we had. No figure has movement nor the head of the great T rex that seems that is the only that it had in some time, not works and the sound that you put lousy, besides find half Park closed not there are rather than tell. That disappointment, a journey of more than three hours to find this. July 03 of 2016.
