Eastern Cuba Sights

Valle de la Prehistoria (Prehistoric Valley)

Fodor's Review

The Valle de la Prehistoria is a park of rolling green fields, filled with life-size replicas of dinosaurs, Cro-Magnon man, and other prehistoric creatures. The park, whose towering sculptures are made of cement poured over wood and metal frames, is divided into different eras: from Paleozoic to Mesozoic to Cenozoic. There's also a natural science museum. Some people have dismissed the place as tacky, but it's hard not to have fun here. (Just watch the kids.)
