Fun day or night activity!

During the day they have tours of the mine which are so fun and at night they have a dance club!! We weren't able to go back for the club but it's on my bucket list for sure.

It is interesting the way mines worked in the 16th century. The rock museum is nice. The guided tour is very funny and entertained (not sure if there are in English).

This is a must-do if you are visiting Zacatecas. Very interesting to get to go into an underground mine. There are two entrances, both are within walking distance of the centro. I'd recommend going to the one by the Alameda because you get to enter via train whereas the other entrance is by elevator. The price is $100 MXN for... More

Going in the mine was a great experience, to feel how the thousands of workers felt during the many years when they explored it. Could be a bit claustrophobic for some people !

Coming here was really cool because we went in by riding a train and then after looking at all the gem rocks that have been excavated from Mexico and also other rocks from around the world!

When we arrived at the mine, a huge crowd had gathered. giving us some insight that the mines were going to be a good experience. Upon entrance, we were greeted with friendly hosts who made our small time in the place amazing. This happened because there were small trains that took us into the mines and they took time to...

Mina El Eden is a fascinating place to go and see. It was great to see everything that is down there. My Spanish is not very strong but I was still able to understand some of the information and thought that what I did understand was very interesting. I can not say much about the tour guides because we went... More
