Rincón Colorado

The valley of dinosaurs

The experience that Rincón Colorado offers the visitor is perhaps a bit unique for Mexico: a journey 70 million years back in time, to the Cretaceous period. It is the site of a museum and Paleontology Reserve which features a Tyrannosaurus Rex, as well as the first fully reconstructed dinosaur of Mexico, the duck-billed Isauria dinosaur.
