“Tourist trap”

Reviewed 29 May 2016 via mobile

Got here due to a taxi driver recommendation. turns out that he was getting kickbacks for dropping us off there.
Price is average: $ 35 pesos (2usd), extra for using the restroom. Has 2 small rooms with some stones got from this and nearby mines. Then you walk 62 steps downstairs to reach a small cave with an hydraulic hammer stuck on one of the walls so you can take a cheese picture and thats it.
Save your money and more importantly save your time! Avoid this mine at all cost, and go some where else!

Similar to other mining visits, the explanation is conventional and the descent is more dangerous (due to the slippery surface) than illustrative of the working conditions of the miners. Outside there are the usual shops but all in all it is not an essential visit in my view.

This used to be a real silver mine. Now it's a museum/ mine. To go to the mine is fun but a way down not for closterfobic and people with high blood pressure.

This is a very short trip, about half an hour. I like that you can take pictures at the bottom of the mine with your hard hat. my mother in law enjoyed it.

It's impressive knowing what went through back in the day to extract all the minerals and precious metals from this mine.

You'll experience descending a few meters down and have a glimpse of how miners felt.

The views towards the mountains are impressive and the site is very well preserve.
