Parque Gondava, Villa de Leyva

3.2
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.

  • It is an excellent choice to go with children. I recommend going in the morning. The visit take approximately 2 hours. They could have better food options. Fun in any case
