This tour takes about an hour. Zacatecas is a mining town, the source of the riches which adorns the historic center, so it would be a huge miss if you did not experience being inside the historic (now out of commission) mine. Our guide Manuel...More

You wait for the train and are carried into the mine. You get off and are alone in the dark with an overload of mineral stones on display and a store. Everything explained in Spanish only. The Spanish speaking guide lets you alone. Later he...More
