Its a lng and bumpy drive out to Torotoro but along the way you are marvelled by the vibrant colours of the mountains and rock formations. The main town has its colonial quaintness. You need to check in at the national park office on the main square and pay your fee bol30 for foreigners bol 15 for bolivianos. Next door... More

By recommendation of a friend me and my girlfriend took the minibus from Cochabamba to Torotoro and fell in love with the place. If your longing for a nature experience of the "gringotrail" I would highly recommend this. There is no need to book anything in advance, just take the minibus, fix accommodation and the show up att the touristoffice... More

Highly recommend a visit to Torotoro national park. The scenery is incredible, and its really not very busy with tourists. We went caving, visited the cathedral rocks, and El Vergel waterfall in the grand canyon which was stunning. It's easy to do it independently - we found this far cheaper than doing it through an agency. All of the tours... More

I went through Bolivia Cultura (office in Cochabamba) for a 3 day, 2 night tour. It was a great experience, and totally worth the money (about USD 145). All meals while in Torotor were included, as well as transportation and accommodations. Transportation seems a little crazy, but that is just the product of the terrible road between Cochabamba and Torotoro.... More

The way to the Torotoro national park is quite long (4-7h) and of course it is a bumpy road but easy to go by collectivo or bus (collectivos leave all day long (best in the morning) and the daily bus most days at 6pm). The park has much to offer first of all lots of dinosaur footprints, just out of... More

The Umajalanta cave is defenitely worth going there for! It was an amazing experience to climb around for hours in the cave. Me and an american guy was alone with our guide Marion. He worked together with Bolivia Cultura and was great. Dont remember his business though and unfortunately he speaks only spanish.

This was definitely an amazing park to visit. However, a word of warning is warranted. I don't think the agencies, guides, and reviews are clear enough about how exhausting this is going to be unless you're young and fit. If, like me, you're approaching middle-age and hold a demanding job that doesn't allow for much exercise but lets you put... More

Don't be put off by the Jurassic Park meets Disneyland kind of advertising they are publishing!! I don't know what they are aiming for with all that. The main attraction of the park is the beauty of the nature. Apparently it is getting more popular over the years so in high season you can find 100/150 more people going for... More

Torotoro is accessible by a long long bumpy bus ride from Cochabamba, or for the truly master drivers you can rent a wreck of jeep in Cochabamba and drive yourself, but I'd recommend you have some knowledge of Spanish if you try this. The dirt roads are extremely narrow winding and often one way on the edge of a cliff.... More

This place seems unknown, nevertheless, it is one of my highlight in Bolivia! Incredible landscapes, amazing rock colors (yellow, purple, red, blue...), nerverseen before rock formations! its only 5h drive from Cochabamba and the scenery on the road is worth the journey. There are heaps to do there: hiking, seeing dinosaurs footprints, seeing fossiles, caving (amazing 2h walk in a... More
