  • Very pretty walk. For the type of experience offered is not expensive (sale $200 per person). The super Guide, charismatic and the excellent way of telling the story and make you live a little every day of the miners of that era. Definitely recommended! As a bonus in the vicinity of the place where the tour is hired there a sra selling delicious empanadas of vizcacha. It is worthwhile to try them!

  • Hand of footprints we ventured to know old mine that is in the town of La Carolina, to start the people is very nice, all in stone, precious! The first time we do this! Prior to the excursion we ate in the dining room traces this to the side, a delicious empanadas with a salad. After a while began to make preparations for the trip: rain boots and helmets. Accompanied by a guide who was telling us of the place, its history and features reach mine. The reality is I had some impression I thought that wouldn't it me bancar and the truth is it banque me and hyper enjoy is something incredible. NOT IS IT LOSING, BEING MINERS FOR AWHILE IS AN INCREDIBLE EXPERIENCE!

  • Great this excursion. You have to know some tunnels of an old gold mine. It is a unique experience to be able to enter a mine.

  • Very nice place, can make the trip to the mine, buy souvenirs, stones, visit the Museum Lafinur, his tomb and a labyrinth of stone. The Carolina village is very picturesque and Omar restaurant never disappoints.
