Let's face it, there isn't a ton to do in Burgos, so this is one of the star attractions. For less than 10 Euros (with student id), I was able to get an admission ticket to the Museum of Human Evolution, a bus ride to Atapuerca, and a tour of Atapuerca. I signed up a day prior, which is a good idea since the ride to Atapuerca only happens once a day and the bus seats like 15 people. The tour is completely in Spanish, but there were some signs at the site explaining things in English.To be honest, there isn't much to see there. At best, you get the experience of seeing what an active acheological dig looks like. However, there is beautiful natural scenery and you get a great view of the valley. One highlight is that they show you actual remains of prehistoric animals, which you get to hold, and they have replicas of skulls which you can also hold. The trip left at 11am and took 3 hours.
All in all, the low price makes this trip worth it. If it cost like $50 Euros, I would say no, but for the current price, why not?
