Parque Gondava, Villa de Leyva
(3.2/5 based on 130+ 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. For Parque Gondava and beyond, use our Villa de Leyva family vacation planner to get the most from your Villa de Leyva vacation.

  • A unique experience for people who are curious with the topic of dinosaurs, the guides are excellent and make something very educational tour, you learn a lot, structures are great, the place is beautiful and it is a bit far but it is part of its charm by which that makes it unique. Excellent Jurassic Park.

  • I brought all the troop along with me for a lovely visit to "Jurasic park" it was outstanding, the kidos loved the dinosaurs and had a great guide (Jaime was very knowledgable.) If you come to Boyaca ...  more »
  • If you don't have another plan, go and meet. It is a large field that requires large investment and maintenance, that means that it is not in excellent condition. However for what it promotes is incomplete. It is missing the restaurant, dishes that were just at 15:00.

  • 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.
