    Interesting to see!
    Very interesting site. We hailed a taxi from the street for 20 BOB. We arrived about 11:15. It then is a good 10 minute walk up to the entrance gate - so make sure to leave time for that. The English guide started gathering people about 11:45 near the bathrooms at the base of the site. He then stopped at the dinosaurs along the way telling us about each one. We got to the start of the hike down about 12:10. There is a long descent to the wall. However, it's pretty cool to see. He does the guiding in both English and Spanish along the way. It was almost an hour long - and very hot. Make sure to wear sunscreen. Worth doing for sure! Tours down to the wall only happen at 12:00 and 1:00.

    Worth a visit! Be sure to arrive in time for the tour!
    Very unique and cool site!! Get to the museum in the morning as there are only two tour times that take you down to the wall to see the dino tracks up close! They go at noon and 1pm only! They do the tours in English and Spanish. It is a steep-ish walk down and back up, so wear good shoes and be ready for a mini workout! Worth it though!

    Fun for a few hours!
    I enjoyed my trip to see the dinosaur tracks but wouldn’t sacrifice a must-do in Sucre to do it. I took the dino bus (bright red bus with dinosaurs on the side, can’t miss it) there and back. I also took the English speaking tour even though I’m an intermediate Spanish speaker (I’m very glad I did since I don’t know dinosaur and archaeological words!). For me, the visit wouldn’t have been worth if I didn’t take the tour. All in all, I enjoyed this activity for a few hours.

The dinosaur tracks are part of a dinosaur park. The park entrance fee includes a free guided tour in English/Spanish, which explains about the discovery of these tracks and the different types of dinosaurs identified. I recommend going for the 12pm or 1pm tour as they are the only ones which go down to visit the actual tracks.

It's an amazing and seldom view. But the prsententation is ridiculous. You barely get information, the "tour" is a unmotivated guy speaking in an incomprehensible English showing no interest for 5 minutes at the beginning of you visiting the wall for 30 minutes. The museum is equally disappointing. Considering the importance and uniqueness of the excavations, this should be a way bigger deal. If you are interested in the field, you will be disappointed. It's little more than a foto-op.

It's amazing seeing the footprints up close. I'd highly recommend doing the 12 or 1pm tours as they're the only ones that let you go near the footprints. The tour guide gives you a brief history of the place and then gives you a tour of the footprints.

I'd say you need about 90 minutes here in total , 45 minutes to take photos of the prints and 45 to walk around the park. The dinosaur statutes are lifesize and to scale which I thought was a pretty nice touch.

I am fascinated by dinosaurs so I found it very interesting to see some real life dinosaur footprints!
Everyday they do the tours at 12pm and 1pm and the guide did an excellent job at explaining what we were looking at in just English and Spanish.
However, the rest of the park didn't have much to it. Mostly just plastic dinosaurs and some speakers playing Jurassic sounds. Probably designed for children so not worth the trip if you're not going to get to do the tour of footprints.

Admission for foreigners is 30Bs, which for what you get is a bit much. Also the additional 5Bs photography pass is a joke!- don’t buy it.
We made it in time for the 12:00 tour. We were all given hard hats. Divided into English and Spanish speakers and given a tour guide per group. The guide was good. He read out of a magazine mostly but was able to answer all my questions. After filling us with information he gave us 30min to take photos in front of the footprints.
The upper level of the park is full of fun dinosaur statues. The museum is small but has a few nice artifacts and the informal video is really good as well! There is also a fun kids activity area.
We took the public bus #4 or H and cost us 2.50Bs each. No need to take the touristic Dino bus for 15Bs.

The dinosaur tracks in the parque cretácico are an exceptional sample of great paleontological value. A combination of sheer luck and prudence has unearthed a plethora of dinosaur footprints near a cement factory. If you look through the fancy statues that the management has erected, you can admire the huge wall with the footpints. Go there at noon, because the excavation tours (which I missed☹️) are at noon and an 1 pm.

The prints are very well preserved and there are a number of different types. The guide was knowledgeable but spoke only Spanish. Doing the tour at noon is best since you can get close to the tracks.

The kids enjoyed the exhibits and the park, they had a great time taking pictures. The size of park was also ideal for kids.
