Zacatecas is beautiful city and one of the spots you do not want to miss is La Mina Del Edén. Going there is a really pleasant experience. You get there and buy your ticket (student discount but nevertheless is very cheap (4 bucks)) then you get your mine helmet and ready to go. You get into a train that takes... More

This seems to be a major tourist attraction in Zacatecas these days. We enjoyed it but tired of it since our Spanish is not good enough to get the jokes. Don't go if you are claustrophobic or think you might get anxious spending an extended period underground. We especially enjoyed the folk paintings depicting miracles related to the mine and...

The town of Zacatecas was built around silver mining and a tour of this mine and museum in the center of town is a must for those interested in the history of this beautiful city. The underground tour begins with a short train ride and continues through the old shafts and tunnels. The mine is well-lighted and the walk through... More

I have been in different mine tours and I have to say this one is very good. You get to walk along a level of the mine and see different areas, minerals, and also the water at the bottom of the place. The guide was helpful and the place big enough to enjoy a good tour. There is also a... More

This is an exhausted mine that has been converted into a terrific tourism attraction, with lots of learning opportunities regarding minerals and mining methods. It's also kind of a museum with exhibits of various phases of pre-Hispanic mining, Spanish era mining, and modern mining methods. Excellent tour choice for kids and adults. Be aware that you will enter the mine... More

It rains a lot in Zacatecas and this is the perfect way to end a couple for hours out of the rain. Interesting and our guide was entertaining so it was great fun.
