Parque Gondava, Villa de Leyva

(3.3/5 based on 140+ 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.

  • We visited with our two kids, in general good attraction for family. The guide was good and the facilities are good. The restrooms can be better. 
  • Is a good option to carry to them children that learn the history about them dinosaurs and also to make them different activities that there offer.

  • If you are travelling with children of great imagination, it is perfect, if you are travelling with adults only... it is a scam, is not archaeological site as it promotes, or if it was once already it is not noticed, is a large park where you travel a circuit surrounded by interpretations of dinosaurs of latex, foam and plaster. There is a small space to represent a dig with fossils... drywall. Where can children play a little. You will also find a small pair of additional activities such as zip lines and boats on a lake. It is not a big deal. Restaurant promises empanadas and tacos in the form of dinosaur, the day that I was there was nothing of this. It is expensive for what it offers,

  • 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.
