Good if you are there for one of the guided tours, otherwise more a tourist trap

It's fun to see the life size dinosaurs models. The tracks are only accessible during lunch time even when the concrete plant isn't working e.g. on Sundays. Charging 3 times the price for foreigners is very high in my opinion plus for taking pictures they charge another 5 Bolivianos. Nice views over the city.

This sits just on the outskirts of Sucre and is an inexpensive little tour to take. It's internationally recognized as the largest grouping of dinosaur tracks in the whole world. It easy enough to hop in a taxi and have them take you there, or there is a bus that waits in the main plaza and leaves and returns from... More

I adore this park, as does my young daughter. It's very well done. There is even a playground for kids where they can pretend to be archeologists and dig up dinosaur bones. There's a dinosaur film, giant realistic looking dinosaurs, and a wee cafe.

Interesting morning activity to see some dino tracks that probably won't be around for much longer. On a Saturday there were tours at 12pm & 1pm that last an hour. The guide speaks English & Spanish. Great info and you can get up close. Entry for foreigners is 30 bs each. Tips: - wear enclosed shoes (they won't let you... More

The cost for the park is super cheap - About $1.50. Your taxi to/from the park will be more expensive than the park ;) We went and were disappointed to hear that there wouldn't be any tours to the tracks because of the rain. However, you can still see the tracks from the park itself. There's an opportunity to pay... More

It's a nice small park. Kids have a fun time seen dinosaur models along the hills. There's also an impressive wall with over sixty different dinosaur footprints. It's a short drive from Sucre.

This park is a fun mix of dinosaur models and interesting artefacts, meaning kids of all ages who have even a passing interest in dinosaurs will love this place

Although this is said to be one of the main tourist attractions in Sucre - it wasn't worth the effort of going. It is very cheap - so the price isn't the problem. However it is made out to sound like a dinosaur park, with lots of activities and information etc. It is literally half a dozen replicas of dinosaurs... More
