  • Around 10 years ago, we visited and we enjoyed the experience. Yesterday we went back to the mine of the condors. What disappointment! Very abandoned and vandalized, in what is left of the buildings around the mine, broken doors and many cows inside, fouling all. Fallen ceilings, access closed with prickly branches, uprooted tiles and bricks thrown by all sides, windows, glasses, mosquito nets, completely destroyed... And all... to the "modest" price of $150 per person (without Guide) and $350 per person (with a guide). A shame. It is a pity that they follow not preserving it. Closed in 1985, therefore, after 32 years, it should not be in such a State of filth and neglect.
