  • Opals of "Trinity" mine is the best in Queretaro and one of the most productive in the world for the quality of its opals, visiting it is a rewarding experience, starting with Mr. Hector polisher and an expert on the subject and then going to the mine open for bus car your own opals, nobody returns without its opal. A highly recommended tour, a tour that only cost $100 hiring it in "La Trinidad", against $300 recruiting at Tequis.

  • Quite nice, is an experience out of the ordinary. If you're willing to get a little dirty and work to achieve an "Opal" is worthwhile, you have to get it for yourself, you just provide your beak to dig yourself, is that what makes it more fun.

  • It was really fun, in addition to being a highly recommended experience. Since you start the climb in 4 x 4 vehicles because the path is only stone, the fun begins. When you get to the mine give you a hammer for you to seek your own opals on the heap of stones and with the help of our guide we found some. In the workshop not explained anything, rather we were taken to see if bought something. It is worthwhile to know and have fun a while. Touched us a moderately hot and sunny day, and we did the activity without problem. It is an open air mine, not as we know them normally and have to descend.
