  • It is an excellent and not so promoted excursion if you are going to merlo. It is a few kilometers from the villa and only the last 9 km are dirt, the rest all asphalt. Upon arrival you can see the abandoned village of the miners. Below is the management where they explain the visit. It costs $400 per person. They give you boots and flashlight. You enter 400 meters through the mine, always at level 0. Upon entering there is a few centimeters of water, but then the water goes away. The visit is very nice and entertaining. Safe and for all ages. Don't stop going
