This is not the type of mine you visit for the thrill as you can only go down 60 steps into a humid tunnel that used to be part of the many tunnels crisscrossing underfoot. This mine, the second to be discovered in the area,...More

There are a few mines in Guanajuato open to the public. This one is one of them. From the outside, it is an impressive colonial building with a beautiful garden. The main attraction, the mine, feels so fake. Yes, that was an actual mine back...More

Show you around and then they take you down into the mine. If you have any problems walking then don't go down into the mine. They have been digging here since 1549.

The place is very charming and you can take great photos. The mine is just a cave you go down 60+ steps. Then you have a small explanation of how things work. You'll be out in less than an hour.

Tour was really short, had to pay extra to use restroom and the guide asked for tips after. Not much info at all, the 'mine' is a few stairs down and not much more. The hacienda is pretty, and the bar looks really cool but...More
