Full-Day Private Tour to Villa de Leyva

Escape the bustling centre of Bogota on a day trip to Villa de Leyva, a tranquil colonial town located on a mountaintop. Due to its remote position far from any major trade routes, the town hasn’t been subject to modernization and provides a glimpse into historic Colombia. This tour includes hassle-free hotel pickup and drop-off, and a traditional Colombian lunch.
$186.00 per adult

This place shows from research and education everything that has been discovered in Villa de Leyva about marine dinosaur fossils. We found a didactic place with professional guides that handle the subject with a lot of methodology and order.

This museum is excellent and although the guide has rather stilted English she told us how the whole area around is still full of marine fossils and the ones on display have been very well reconstructed.

Interesting to learn more about Colombia through its paleontological history. While the exhibit is quite small, it is definitively worth a visit if you are in the area anyways. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable, and our specific guide spoke good English.

Fascinating fossils that provide an insight into the world of sea reptiles and sea life 100 million years ago. And a reminder of how much of Colombia used to be under water.

This is a great and educational way to spend an hour or two, granted my Spanish isn't exactly expert level, so I wasn't able to get all the information, but i did fine. It's great especially if you have little one(s), what kids don't love dinosaurs?
