  • He could not imagine that you could download and upload without fear. When say you that they are 70 meters you frighten, but the guides, or at least who assisted us was very friendly and careful, I would do it. In the end they are 220 steps.

  • Valencia is a small town which you can go in the truck. It has several mines and in this case we went to the bocamina San Ramon, where the entrance to entertain you love you sell Quartz... you walk a stretch and arrive. The entrance costs 42 pesos and is a property that has a bocamina that low 20 meters just for the photo. I do not recommend wasting time on that.

  • Interesting, but not a must-see if you don't have much time or not interested in taking a taxi so far out. Not very deep, and you don't see much, but the guide's stories are interesting, and it's a short, manageable tour. If you're interested in the mines in this area, this is the only one worth seeing. Don't go to any of the others! Those are tiny in comparison, just holes in the ground.
  • What people say about having to tip the guide is true. There's no way not because one feels awful watching older men walk down and up so many flights of stairs. Most of the experience is stairs. Learning how the indigenous mined is a horrendous reality dose. Depressing.
  • This is one of the inactive entrances to an active mine. There are stairs so you can go 60m below surface. Not adequate for claustrophobic people. There's a part in the tour when the lights are turned off to demonstrate how it was before mining technology. Very interesting place.
  • You get the chance to go 150 meters underground. The story about how people used to work there is amazing. Even people who are not sporty can take the tour without much trouble. It is a bit demanding going up though.
  • Interesting tour of the mine shaft. Going down the stairs is easy, going up is when the challenge begins.
