Great place

Very interesting place to go. You can feel what is to be in a mine without any danger so it´s a place to all the family.

With so many museums and great restaurants in Zacatecas (plus a festival going on), I wasn't really planning on taking this mine tour. But as it wasn't too far a walk to the entrance of the mine from Gorditas Doña Julia, where I had had a quick lunch, and because it was an easy way to get the Teleferico entrance,... More

This was my first party in an underground mine. The train ride was '!'. I was very impress by the 3D laser light show. Everyone was dancing and jumping to the world dance music while i was busy Shazaming all the latin songs i love. (Btw: the have wifi even though you are 120 meters underground :)

I'm not one for tours but I went there with Recepturz as part of the afternoon tour Zacatecas Traditional. First a visit to La Bufa a high hill overlooking the city. From there to the top entry of the Eden mine by cable car. All for less than $20 and then a tour around the old part of the city.... More

Be prepared for an incredible part of Spanish - Mexican history. It is one thing to read about Mexican mines, but quite another to travel through a mine that operated for over 500 years. I would recommend this to anyone who is not afraid of being underground. I have taken other mine and cave tours where the guide turns off... More

We enjoyed this very much. You can get a tour in English but you may have to wait. Go to the Bufa and take the tereferico yo the mine. Best way to get there.

Specifically went to Zacatecas for the opportunity to tour this specific mine. It didn't disappoint at all. Didn't know what to expect and was impressed with the whole tour. The tour guide was wonderful!

What a wonderful experience we had today touring the El Eden mine. After donning a miner's hat (necessary due to the low, rocky ceiling) we took a small train into the mine and then were lead by our guide to the various points of interest. We started out in a small museum of different types of minerals and were so... More

This is an old Mine in Zacatecas, now considered an attraction for visitors. This is a must go place in Zacatecas. You might be lucky an try to find the gold stone that has been lost for a lot of years. Just Enjoy.
