Sucre, Bolivia

Sucre, the constitutional capital of Bolivia

Fooled? I bet you thought it was La Paz.

One of its most famous attractions…. A cement quarry.

Why a cement quarry?

During the excavation of raw materials for making cement, they discovered a hillside that 70 million years ago was the floor of a swamp. The fossilised footprints of dinosaurs left in the mud became the hillside through geological action. It’s just a few kilometres from the city toward the airport.

Sucre has since capitalised on its fame.

Parque Cretacico

5000 footprints, belonging to at least eight different species of dinosaurs.  It is one of the most important dinosaur footprint sites in the world. The park is like a theme park, not much info, but realistic BIG dinosaurs.


One of only two places in the world where Ankylosaurus footprints have been found

So you want to see Jurassic Park…
