In the morning we fly to Cochabamba and leave for the Toro Toro National park (5 hours drive with 3 on a small bumby road) which is full of places to discover. If we have time we can visit the small village Tarata, famous for being the birthplace of two former Bolivian Presidents. About ½ an hour before we reach the park we visit the Cascada de Golondrinas where we can see dinosaur footprints and swim in a huge natural swimming pool with waterfalls. After dinner at the village the rest of the evening is free.

We enter some 300m/985ft into the cave past stalactites and stalagmites and we end our tour at an underground lake with blind fish and waterfalls.

We arrive at El Vergel, also known as Waca Senqa, a waterfall with warm water emerging in the middle of the Torotoro canyon and we of course have time to swim – remember to bring your towel.

Our second option is “7 vueltas” which is one of the most important sites for fossil observation in Bolivia. It is an impressive geological and paleontological site with thousands of fossils from the Brachiopod and Cephalopod ages. After lunch we return to Cochabamba and fly back to La Paz.
