Bring lots of water. Bring suncreen. Did I mention you should bring water?

So, any way, about a half hour into your walk you'll notice odd light effects around the sun, as the wind rasps and the burning glare creates mirages all around you and a vulture... read more

This place is awesome and hardly visited. You walk through stunning desert-like scenery, following a trail that takes about 90 mins, and see lots of fossils still in situ. As you go further, you climb upwards so the layers of fossils went forwards through time, starting with the earliest near the start of the trail. They have highlighted some of... More

Its a 8 km walk from town to the Parque so well worth the cost of a taxi to drive you both ways. We arranged with a taxi at the park square to drive us out and then pick us up. The fare is normally 90 pesos each way but he gave us 70 peso each way fare. There is... More

Very little us invested in this outdoor museum. The signs to get there are small and inaccurate. We walked on a 2 km trail. The sites were covered with glass but sometimes broken. No English explanation. The larger signs had English but it was hard to relate them to the surrounding area. A lot of walking for very little.

Looked like a good place to visit, the view of the sierras was great from the gate, would have loved to go for a trekking there for a while, but while at the MEF they told us it was open, when we got there everything was closed.

How do you put a numerical rating on something that is campy fun but not necessarily everyone's idea of fun? I'll call it a 3/5 stars. The idea of this park is cool . . . see the paleontological finds where they were found and let people hike to them. At least I think that was the idea. The man... More
