#8 of 23 in Theme Parks in Colombia
Theme Park Water / Amusement Park
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.

  • Ideal for visiting with children. A nice walk in this thematic Museum Park. They cut the original route but it is still interesting. The cable car (cable) is a unique experience!

  • Good place to learn, beautiful landscapes. If we want to know more than the large lizards that lived in these places millions of years ago, this site is perfect.
