We just visited yesterday and the park has recently begun guided tours down into the valley to get closer to the wall. The tours are every day at noon and 1pm. You're still not allowed to go right up to the wall (as a matter of safety- rocks could fall), but we got within 30 ft or so. The tour definitely made what would otherwise be a mediocre attraction a really awesome day.

This is a cheap afternoon out and well worth the time if you like dinosaurs. I'm not sure what other reviewers were expecting from Bolivia but this was better than any of the dinosaur exhibits/attractions in Argentina. Entrance was only £3 each and we got a good tour in English, explaining about how the tracks have ended up at 72 degrees and had fun wandering around the life size replicas that make noises! The tracks are clearly visible and it is amazing just how many there are - and that they might not be around for much longer. If you are unable to do any of the dinosaur treks, this is a fun afternoon a few BOBs from downtown.

I you can read this post by yourself then don't even bother going into the park. Take local bus 4 from a block off the main plaza which will give you a nice, cheap but roundabout tour of the entire city and leave you near the dinosaur tracks at the end of the line. I wouldn't waste the time or money going into the park unless you have kids; the dinosaur prints you can see (on a cliff face a couple hundred metres opposite the park) from outside just as well. Take your zoom lens if you have or too.

If you want to see dinosaur footprints, go to Torotoro. Out just look at them here through the fence. The only thing you get for your entry fee is too look at life scale dinosaur models. Not a better look at the footprints, they're still far away.

Guided tour was silly and didn't really tell you anything interesting...

I was not expecting much from Cal Orck'o but I was very pleasantly surprised. The tracks are quite a long way away, but clearly visible - it's just hard to get an idea of how big they are. But it's really something to see dinosaur footprints - not to mention a few thousand of them all at once. We were given a guided tour in English (just the two of us!) which was included in the admission price. This was good, and gave the park context. The guide explained how the footprints came to be there, and talked about conservation work, and told us something about dinosaurs in general. The models were much better than we'd anticipated - and were complete with noises - great for kids!
There's a small restaurant on site - offering snacks but also a 'menu del dia'. The waitress forgot our milkshakes, but service was friendly and when we went to pay, we were given the milkshakes on the house as an apology for having to wait so long.
There are also telescopes at the viewing platform but we found these to be of little use. You're not able to focus them or adjust the eyepieces.
We got to the park on microbus 4. Make sure you get the bus going in the right direction - otherwise you'll end up at Castello de la Glorietta. It's only $B 1.50 and a great ride if you have a lot of time. (At least 45 minutes). The bus weaves through town, and takes a long time to negotiate the Mercado Campesino. The park is the last stop on the bus - you can't miss it.
